Conveyancing in Surrey

We recognise that moving house can be one of the most costly and important steps that anyone makes, and one of the most stressful of life’s experiences. We offer a service designed to minimise problems wherever possible and to keep you informed at every important stage.

Conveyancing – what is it?

Transferring the ownership of land is not like transferring the ownership of, say, a piece of furniture or a car. Land is always there, and in the course of time many rights and obligations may be created in relation to it. They are often not evident on an inspection of the property. For example, someone may have a right to occupy part of it, but not be there when you call; a neighbour may have a right to enter the property and dig up the drains in order to inspect or clean his drain.

The public, too, may have claims perhaps there is a public footpath across the property; the council could have rights in respect of, for example, compulsory acquisitions or unpaid charges for making up the road. The planning authority, or the highway authority, are perhaps considering schemes which would affect the environment of the house you are thinking of buying.
