Buying or Selling? –
What does conveyancing mean?
Conveyancing refers to the sale of real estate from a vendor (seller) to a purchaser (buyer).
Exchange - when a binding legal contract to buy and sell land comes into existence. A deposit of 5% or 10% of the purchase price is usually paid at the time of exchange and usually held by a stakeholder (the vendor’s real estate agent, solicitor, or conveyancer) until completion of the contract.
Completion or Settlement - when the balance of the purchase money is paid over, the title is transferred to the purchaser and (usually) the purchaser takes possession of the land.
Property - can refer to any kind of asset at all including land (also called real estate), goods (also called chattels), fixtures (goods which are attached to land), chooses inaction (rights to sue people) and non physical rights such as intellectual property and confidential information. Accordingly, when referring to real estate it is better to use the term real estate or land rather than the general term property.
Person - to a solicitor means any legal entity. This includes individuals (i.e. human beings), companies, strata bodies corporate and statutory corporations (e.g. local councils).
