Your home is a major financial investment. This is why moving house is a major transaction and why, when you have agreed a price on the home you want, you cannot simply hand the owner a cheque and then move in. The agreement drawn up when the property changes hands must be absolutely watertight. This whole process is called Conveyancing.

In order to help you understand and track the progress of your move we have prepared an outline of the various stages of a sale, a purchase or a re-mortgage. We have also put together a glossary of the important words and phrases you will encounter during the process of your move which we hope you will find useful.
