For most people, their home represents the largest financial investment they will make in their lifetime; for this reason, it is vital to ensure the conveyancing process is completed with precision.

At Lawlor Kiernan LLP, our conveyancing & Residential Property Solicitors team will work earnestly to complete your property transaction, but it is our policy not to trade speed for quality.  Our team understands the need to make in depth enquiries to find possible issues or information of which you should be aware  in relation to the property you are purchasing. Lawlor Kiernan LLP Solicitors offer our clients a diligent and professional service when it comes to buying and selling property.

What is the residential conveyancing process in Ireland?

Residential conveyancing refers to the formal process of buying or selling a property (e.g. a house or apartment) or land.  There are multiple steps involved in the process. In summary, they are as follows:

  • Sale is agreed between vendor and purchaser.
  • Vendor’s Solicitor sends the draft Contract of Sale to the purchasers Solicitor
  • Purchaser’s Solicitor will carry out a review of the title deeds and raise any queries with the Vendor’s Solicitor
  • Property will be surveyed by the purchaser
  • Purchaser’s Solicitor will give an undertaking to the lender that once funds are received, these will not be released until a ‘good marketable title’ is in place.
  • Contract of Sale will be signed by both parties – at this point, both parties are legally bound to continue with the sale/purchase.
  • Funds will be drawn down from the lender
  • Closing searches will be undertaken
  • Title documents and funds are then exchanged
  • Keys are released
  • Deed is stamped and sent to the Property Registration Authority.
  • An application is then made to the Property Registration Authority to register the Title in the name of the purchaser.

At Lawlor Kiernan LLP, we pride ourselves in our attention to detail.  Our conveyancing Residential Property Solicitors team has the ability to identify problems which on the surface may seem relatively minor, but if ignored could later cost you vast sums and cause considerable stress and anxiety.   Once you engage our residential conveyancing services, you can relax in the knowledge your transaction is in the best possible hands.
