Con­fu­sion over le­gal terms

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

A sur­vey by re­al­ly­mov­ has shown wide­spread con­fu­sion about con­veyanc­ing: the le­gal process of trans­fer­ring prop­erty own­er­ship.

More than a third (37 per cent) of re­spon­dents did not know what the term con­veyanc­ing meant. This rises to 57 per cent of those who were rent­ing and half (51 per cent) of adults liv­ing with par­ents. Sur­pris­ingly, this also ac­counts for a quar­ter (23 per cent) of home­own­ers who have been through the process.

A quar­ter of all re­spon­dents wrongly be­lieved that a sur­veyor could carry out the process in­stead of a con­veyanc­ing so­lic­i­tor.
