2What is Conveyancing

Conveyancing is the term used to describe the process by which property is either bought, sold, transferred or re-mortgaged between two different parties.

What is Involved?

At Ryan & Co. Solicitors we provide conveyancing services. We will walk you through the conveyancing procedure step by step and explain all of the processes involved. Depending on the transaction we will guide you through each stage of the process in a swift and easy fashion explaining exactly what is involved and the likely time frame for completion of the transaction.

For example; if you are selling a property for the first time this involves taking up the Title Deeds from your Lending institution if you have a mortgage, the Contracts are then drafted up and a closing date is normally agreed for four to six weeks after signing of the Contracts.

We can assist you with all the legal formalities associated with selling your house or apartment. It is better to seek our advice before a buyer is found. Remember we need to take up your deeds from the existing lending institution and it is useful to let us work on this as soon as you decide to put the house on the market. With the documents, and early instructions from you, we can anticipate the requirements of the purchaser’s solicitor and make the purchasing process as smooth as possible.

These are the papers we will require to allow us to get working on the legal aspects of your sale:

  • Your deeds (or a letter of authority signed by you, quoting your account reference number, addressed to your lending institution and authorising us to take up your deeds)
  • Your PPS (Personal Public Service – Tax Number) number and confirmation of your marital status
  • (If married) your state marriage certificate
  • (If separated or divorced) the separation agreement or court order
  • Up to date receipt for any local authority charges
  • Up to date ground rent receipt (if applicable)
  • The telephone number of any line being transferred with the property
  • Confirm if there is a gas supply to the premises
  • Planning permission and Architect’s Certificate of Compliance (or Exemption if applicable) for any alterations carried out to the property
  • In the case of sales of apartments there are additional requirements regarding the management company accounts and service charges – we will let you have a detailed list of these requirements once you instruct us to act for you
