Why is this? What is the history of conveyancing? Why are these specific types of solicitors so important to the sale of property in the UK?
It all started in 1823. The Law Society was established at this time as the body that represented all lawyers in England and Wales. Before then, there had been no specific regulations to govern solicitors and conveyancing solicitors were no different – many of them were crooks. Before 1823 there was no way to distinguish a good solicitor from a bad one, many people had to simply hope for the best when it came to a conveyancer and in general, solicitors had a bad name.
Conveyancing quotes would have been hugely inflated and any money spent could, in some circumstances, never be seen again. It was all a bit of a gamble. The Law Society changed all of this and along with the reputation of solicitors, the role of a conveyancer has changed too.
It used to be terribly difficult to buy and sell property and there were many more legal hurdles to work through than there are today. For example, there was no Land Registry, so it was almost impossible to discover who owned a property. This led to many disputes that had to be settled before the sale could commence.
Thankfully, the process is now much simpler, although it is still important to engage a specialist who is trained in conveyancing to do the work for you.
