Purchasing and/or selling a property can be a bit of a roller-coaster. From complex paperwork, where the smallest mistake could be costly to amend, to the range of legal formalities required to complete the process, it can be a very stressful time.
Working with a conveyancing solicitor can streamline the process, taking much of the strain off your shoulders. However, deciding which conveyancing solicitor to choose can also be a tricky decision, particularly as online conveyancing services have become more widespread.
To give you a helping hand, here is an introduction to online conveyancing featuring everything you need to know before embarking on your property selling journey.
What Is Conveyancing?
Conveyancing is the legal term for the process of transferring ownership of a property from one party to another. The seller of a property is required to draw up a contract for the ownership transfer, which must include details about the sale price, the fittings and fixtures that are included, whether there are any planning restrictions and when the sale will officially complete. It is a complex and often lengthy process which is most efficiently carried out by an experienced conveyancing solicitor.
Online conveyancing operates in the same way as traditional high-street conveyancing, but most of the filing and correspondence is completed online. Importantly, however, many high-street conveyancing services, such as those offered by Sam Conveyancing, have also embraced digital technology and now also deliver a markedly more streamlined conveyancing process.
What Are the Benefits of Online Conveyancing?
The popularity of online conveyancing has been rising precisely because it is typically much more streamlined than traditional conveyancing, which involves stacks upon stacks of paperwork. Not only can most documents be submitted online, important meetings can also be conducted virtually. This often has a beneficial impact on the cost of this important service.
In addition to reduced costs, buyers will also find it easier to monitor the progress of the transaction without needing to attend endless meetings. This is typically provided via an online portal which offers real-time updates every step of the way.
