Is there a difference between surveying and conveyancing in Halstead?

Conveyancing - in Halstead or elsewhere - is the process of legally transferring legal title of property from one person to another. It therefore includes 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 are intending to buy and will help you find out about 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 remedy the defects before you move in.
