What does the term ‘conveyancing’ mean?

This term describes the transference of a property between owners. When someone buys or sells a house, a conveyancer will work through a number of steps to make sure that the contracts are ready to be exchanged in order to complete the purchase or sale. A conveyancer will also make sure that all parties are kept up to date so that there are no delays. This includes estate agents and mortgage lenders.

The conveyancing process – an overview:

  1. The conveyancer will take instruction from you and ask for your ID.
  2. The solicitor working for the seller will prepare the contract and will send it to the solicitor representing the buyer. In this process, they will ask the land registry for the title deeds and will draw up the contract.
  3. Searches will be carried out by the buyer’s solicitors. The solicitor will also make enquires about the contract and will review the house survey. The searches typically involve land registry services, local authority searches, water searches and environmental searches and mining searches to seek as much information as possible about the property. They will review the survey and if there are any concerns, they will raise them with the seller’s solicitor. As soon as the seller’s solicitor responds to the queries and all parties are happy then the contract will be approved.
  4. Our team will prepare for the contract exchange.
  5. You will sign the contract and the contracts will be exchanged with the other party.
  6. We will then prepare for completion. At this point, we request a mortgage advance and carry out final searches.
  7. You are given the keys and the sale is complete. When the sale is completed, will register the purchase with the Land Registry and pay the stamp duty.

How do you choose a good conveyancing solicitor?

The choice of conveyancing solicitor might be just as important as the choice of a new home. Having the right solicitor will ease any stresses involved with moving home and will make sure your property is documented properly with the Land Registry. A good solicitor will speed the process up as much as they can so that you’re in your new home as soon as possible.

All of the costs, including third-party costs, will be explained fully before we begin working for you.
