Conveyancing, by definition, is a section of real estate law that includes transferring property. Conveyancing is also known as transferring the deed that identifies the real estate owner. This is a common practice for a number of situations, including:

  • Inter-family transfers in the event of a death. For example, this may happen when a parent passes away and their property needs to be transferred into the ownership of their surviving children.
  • When a mortgage can no longer be paid by the original buyer and must be transferred to avoid foreclosure. This is a good way to keep a foreclosure from occurring and keep it from damaging your credit.

What Is A Deed Transfer?

A deed is the official legal document that transfers ownership between the buyer and the seller. This type of transaction typically avoids the closing process and provides a legal avenue for new ownership. Together with their real estate lawyer(s), the buyer and the seller create a legal description of the property that is signed by the seller under notary witness. A deed transfer can be a very quick process when all parties are in agreement and the title is free and clear of any liens or other legal hindrances.

Through a warranty deed or a quitclaim deed, property ownership can be transferred. It’s important to fully understand the legal implications of doing a deed transfer, whether you are receiving the property or signing it away before you finalize the transaction. A real estate lawyer can explain the process and it’s consequences to you as well as help you ensure that the transaction is in your best interest.

When To Transfer Property

Many different life situations arise that warrant a property transfer through conveyancing. People who often find themselves dealing with deed transfers are those who have lost a family member who owned the home, a divorce, or the original owner can no longer pay the mortgage and wants to transfer ownership to avoid foreclosure. Many of the situations that necessitate a deed transfer are stressful; they often come out of major life events. Hiring a real estate lawyer to work with you through the process can take some of the stress out of the situation by making sure you have knowledgeable representation on your side and that all matters are done in your best interests. It can help you avoid making a mistake that would have a huge negative impact on your future, including your ability to purchase another property at a later date.

Inter-Family Deeds With Life Estate

One area in which our real estate attorneys specialize is transferring deeds between family members in the case of life estate claims and distributions. For example, if your widowed mother lived alone and owned her house but then passed away, The Law Offices of Diron Rutty can help transfer the property deed to another family member who can either continue owning the home or move forward with a more typical real estate transaction to sell the home. This can pave the way for the family to settle the estate. It can also help ensure that a beloved family home stays within the family. In either case, it gives the family the benefit of being able to legally own the home until decisions can be made later on.
