Conveyancing: the essentials

Conveyancing is the legal process that sees the transfer of a property from one person to another. Whether selling or buying, you should instruct a conveyancer to take care of the legal aspect of moving home for you.

It is also one of the most time-consuming parts of any home move and is often the time when things can go wrong. It is vital that you have someone ‘in the know’ on hand to support you, from offer to move-in day.

We work hard at building and nurturing good working relationships with our team of quality assured Conveyancers so you don’t have to. Our goal is quite simply to support you through the entire legal process.

Getting you legally prepared…

When selling, we can start the legal work as soon as your property is listed, by getting you legally prepared. This ensures that as soon as we find a buyer for your home, your conveyancer will have all of the necessary paperwork ready for the buyer's conveyancer. In our experience this can save weeks, and make your property more attractive for buyers in a hurry.

Our panel of conveyancers work closely with our sales progressors to make sure that the process is as smooth and quick as possible.

WhiteKnights were fantastic throughout the whole sale process. My house sold for a good price in less than a week, and towards the end of the process when there might have been a bit of a delay, WhiteKnights took control of the entire transaction and ensured that we completed before Christmas. Many thanks to Scott, Mark and all the team.
