What is conveyancing?
Conveyancing is the legal transfer of a property from one owner to another. It ensures that when you buy or sell a property, everything is legal and you get the property you paid for at the agreed price. Conveyancing starts when an offer is made on a property or when a seller accepts an offer and lasts until completion day when keys for the property and contracts are formally exchanged.

I've recently used Osbornes for my home purchase and an equity transfer. Rachael was fantastic all the way through, keeping me informed and up to speed as to the purchase progress.
We hope not to move again for a long time, but when we do we will choose Osbornes for the conveyancing. Thank you.
Buying and selling a house can often be a challenging process, but communication and service I received from Osbornes was second to none. I would recommend them without hesitation - 5 stars
I have used Osbornes a few times and I’m really happy with the service provided. They provide a very professional, polite and efficient service and I would highly recommend them.
Osbornes team was great with the sale of our property, everything went smoothly and very responsive
Osbornes are really thorough, professional & friendly. They were aware of the need for haste in my sale & they did everything they could to achieve the results of completing before the end of the SDLT holiday.
