PASSION AND EXPERTISE
Residential Conveyancing is the legal process of purchasing or selling a house. The majority of the people use solicitors to act for them on a house sale or purchase because they need a conveyancing expert to guide them in the process. In addition, if you are purchasing with a mortgage, your lender will require a solicitor to be appointed to act for and on their behalf.

RESIDENTIAL CONVEYANCING LAW
In law, conveyancing is the transfer of the legal title of real property from one person to another or the granting of an encumbrance such as a mortgage or a lien. A typical conveyancing transaction has two major phases: the exchange of contracts (when equitable interests are created) and completion (also called the settlement, when legal title passes and equitable rights merge with the legal title).
The sale of land is governed by the laws and practices of the jurisdiction in which the land is located. It is a legal requirement in all jurisdictions that contracts for the sale of land be in writing. Exchange of contracts involves two copies of a contract of sale being signed, one copy of which is retained by each party. When the parties are together, both would usually sign both copies, one copy of which is retained by each party, sometimes with a formal handing over of a copy from one party to the other. However, it is usually sufficient that only the copy retained by each party be signed by the other party only — hence contracts are “exchanged”. This rule enables contracts to be “exchanged” by mail. Both copies of the contract of sale become binding only after each party is in possession of a copy of the contract signed by the other party—i.e., the exchange is said to be “complete”. An exchange by electronic means is generally insufficient for exchange unless the laws of the jurisdiction expressly validate such signatures.
