Buying or selling a property can sometimes be a stressful and protracted process, regardless of whether you’re hoping to purchase your dream home, an investment property or are selling property assets for another reason.

What is conveyancing?

Conveyancing refers to the legal process of transferring ownership of a property from one party to another. It involves tasks such as drafting and reviewing contracts, conducting property searches, and ensuring all necessary paperwork is completed accurately and efficiently.
