What is Conveyancing?


A Conveyancer is a specialised and properly licensed legal practitioner who handles all of the aspects of a Conveyance.

When someone speaks of a Conveyance, this is the process which begins with the Sale and Purchase Agreement and ends with the transfer of legal ownership of property (title) from seller to buyer.

In some countries, Conveyancing can be dealt with by licensed Conveyancing firms.

As of 2014, regulations were brought into effect which restricted the legal process of Conveyancing of Dubai-based property.

As a result, Conveyancing in Dubai is only available from law firms that are duly licensed to offer legal services in the in Emirate of Dubai.

Who needs conveyance in the UAE?

Anyone who is buying or selling a property, gifting part-ownership to a spouse or other family member or even applying for their initial title deed should use a Conveyancer to handle the legal aspects involved, ensuring a smooth, safe transaction.

A property sale is, in terms of money value, one of the largest legal transaction which most people deal with in their lifetime.

Like most legal transactions, it is based on a contract (the property sale contract) which must be legally enforceable and, like any other legal matter, poor planning and mistakes can lead to expensive court hearings and long delays in settling disputes.

That's why in most countries around the world, legal Conveyancers are almost always used to complete the work, ensuring that there's no mistakes and that the client is protected, under the law.
