We’ve put together a few frequently asked questions on conveyancing to help.

Property Conveyancing is a legal process of buying or selling a property. In most cases people use a conveyancing solicitor or licensed conveyancer to handle the transaction. The process can be stressful and in some cases complicated so it is advisable to use a qualified professional.

Conveyancing fees vary from firm to firm and according to the type and size of the property. When comparing conveyancing solicitor’s quotes please ensure you check like-for-like. Not all property conveyancing specialists offer fixed fees and in some cases there may be additional costs not quoted to you from the outset.

Both are regulated and capable of taking on the sale or purchase of your property. If it is a commercial conveyancing transaction you will often need to talk to a conveyancing solicitor as this area of law can be more complex.

Every sale and purchase is different and sometimes the slightest hiccup can hold up the process but typically it can be completed in 12 weeks. Our conveyancing specialists have completed conveyancing processes much quicker than this and others have taken much longer.

For property buyers, the stages include 1. Offer to vender, 2. Instruction of a conveyancer, 3. Payment of upfront fees, 4. Property Searches, 5 Mortgage offer, 6. Survey, 7. Deposits, 8. Planning of completion date, 9. Exchange and 10. Completion

For property seller, the stages 1. Find an estate agent and put property on the market. 2. Accept an offer, 3. Instruct a conveyancing solicitor, 4.Get an energy assessment, 5. Draft contracts, 6. Agree completion date, 7. Exchange, 8. Completion

Your property conveyancer will request a settlement figure for your mortgage if required and with liaise with all relevant parties to the completion.

The property searches in a property purchase include: Local Authority, Water and Drainage, Environmental, Commons Registration, Coal Mining, Land Charges, Index Map Search, Disadvantaged Areas, Chancel Repair
and Indemnity Insurance.

This is very much dependent on the local council. In most cases it is 2 – 3 weeks. This process can be lengthier if the results require further investigation if for example a problem has shown up in a search that could affect the value of the property.

Typically conveyancing lawyers recommend a window of 1 to 2 weeks to allow both parties time to organise themselves, book removal companies etc.
