BUYING AND SELLING
Buying and selling property can be complex, both legally and practically. Below is a guide that answers some of the most common questions asked about the process of buying and selling property. It sets out the legal framework of residential conveyancing transactions both from the buyer and the seller’s perspective.
Every property we sell and every client we serve is different, which means every conveyancing unique. There are, however, similar elements or stages in each transaction. We have tried to outline below a basic overview of how the process should progress.
Williamson and Henry can explain and guide you through every stage of the conveyancing transaction. Regardless of whether you are buying or selling or which stage of the process you are at, our experienced property and conveyancing Solicitors are here to help. See our Estate Agency page for information regarding our properties for sale.
What is Conveyancing?
Conveyancing in Scotland can really be broken down into two stages. The first stages of the process is the contract, or missives stage (as it is known), the second stage is the conveyancing stage. Conveyancing, very simply, is the transfer of legal title to property from one legal person (a legal person may also be a company) to another.
Both stages in the process are important to ensure you get / pass legal title to everything the parties intend. That’s why at Williamson and Henry we take great care in listening to our clients and carry out your transactions with great care and attention to detail.
