Conveyancing is the technical description given to transferring or selling or buying a piece of ground or house.

It is one area of law that most Solicitors in Scotland are familiar with, but it is nevertheless an area which is unknown to most members of the public.

Despite the advances in technology it is not something that can be undertaken by anyone.
