What do you need to know about conveyancing for international buyers?
Conveyancing covers the preparation of legal documents required for the purchasing of a property. When purchasing abroad, there can be tax implications and you will need to understand the law of the land that you wish to purchase in. A well established conveyancer within the area you wish to move to will also have the advantage of being familiar with local markets.
Buying an international property is a big investment; to protect it, you will need to be sure of your conveyancer's qualifications. For a licensed conveyancer to practice legally he must pass the Council for Licensed Conveyancers (CLC) exams. Although not necessary to apply for the exams, a candidate may have previously obtained other qualifications, such as a university degree. Look at their previous work as well: have they dealt with many international clients, and for the amount of money involved in your deal? Take the time to read reviews from their previous clientele. If you are buying internationally you may not have the time to meet your conveyancer early on, and reviews can help you gauge an option's professionalism. Each of your options should be able to provide information on their qualifications and experience. If one cannot or is hesitant, they are one to avoid.
