What is the difference between surveying and conveyancing in Dickens Heath?
Conveyancing - in Dickens Heath or elsewhere - is the process of legally transferring legal title of property from one person to another. It involves the checking of the title. Whether buying or selling, you should be aware of anything affecting the property such as proposals by government departments, illegal buildings, or outstanding rates. The conveyancer should conduct the appropriate searches and inquiries on the property. Surveying relates to the structure of a property itself. A surveyor will look at a house, flat and any outbuildings you’re purchasing and will help you discover the condition of the building and, if there are problems, give you a powerful reason for reducing the price down or asking the seller to fix the problems prior to you move in.
