Conveyance Fees Definition

A conveyance is legal document known as a deed that transfers a property from the seller (or vendor) to the buyer.   Property transactions are usually carried out by a solicitor, a licensed conveyancer, or, in Scotland, a solicitor’s agent. It is possible to carry out your own legal work, but for most people this is not advised. Some estate agents offer in-house legal services, although it is usually wiser to engage an independent solicitor in order to avoid any conflict of interest.   Finding the right conveyancer can be laborious and time consuming and therefore online can be a quicker, easier and often cheaper option. There are many benefits to using an online conveyance service.

Geographical location of the conveyancer is irrelevant as everything is done online eliminating the need to meet at the solicitor’s office and saving you time.   Many online conveyancers operate a “No move, No fee” policy, ensuring that the user is not liable for any cost other than those occurred on your behalf.
