If you have made up your mind to buy or sell a real estate property there is no doubt that you will have to go in for property conveyancing or property settlement as it is often called. This is a very important and a mandatory legal process without which it would not be possible to transfer the ownership from the seller to the buyer. Hence as a customer you should be clear about the various processes involved so that you can get rid of some myths and perceptions that exist in many minds. The most common myth that you should stay away from is the talk about conveyancing being an optional process. Conveyancing is mandatory and the only think that could be optional is to hire or not to hire the right professional for going through this process. There are a few who believe that conveyancing can be done by the customers themselves. This belief is more of an opinionated approach rather than being based on facts. Here are a few points why such a myth should be treated with scant respect.
Conveyancing at the end of the day is an extremely complicated and difficult process. There are may twists and turns involved and an ordinary customer would be not in a position to do it on his own. Secondly, the entire process of property settlement has many steps to it and there could be more than one professional whose services might be needed. For example while the role of property lawyers and attorneys would be do to look into the legal aspects of the entire property that is being bought, the role of property valuers and appraisers is also very important.
The main role of property valuers is to find out the fair market value of the property in question. Apart from this there are other important pieces of information which also are a part of the roles performed by these professionals. They talk about the quality of amenities and facilities available in the locality, the quality of people who make up the neighborhood and so on. Then there is the role of property documentation specialists. Their main role is to ensure that they prepare, vet and execute all the important legal and property documents so that the process of property ownership transfer can happen quite fast and without any hitch. We have to bear in mind that there are timelines that have to be adhered to as far as property conveyancing is concerned.
