Why Inform Authorities of Your Sale in Conveyancing?
Informing authorities about the sale of a residential property is not just a procedural formality; it’s a legal imperative.

When selling a property, transparency is of utmost importance. This applies not only to the relationship between the buyer and seller, but also to reporting the sale to the authorities.
