  • Hi there, Conveyancing has two different meanings when you're talking about property. It can mean the transference of a property's legal title from one person to another. It can also describe an encumbrance being granted - which is when someone claims a right to the property that doesn't affect ownership transferral, but reduces its overall value. A mortgage is an example of this. Many thanks, Dan

  • When you buy or sell a property you have to change the Title. This is similar to having a car log book. The ownership details change. If you are adding a person to your title or removing a person and it is not a sale or purchase then this is called transfer of equity
