What is conveyancing?2023-07-13T17:16:18+00:00

Conveyancing is the legal transfer of a property from one person to another.  Conveyancing can also relate to the addition or removal of mortgages/legal charges from a property register, and any material change to title deeds or property ownership.

How can I ensure I am prepared for my property transaction?2023-07-13T17:16:54+00:00

If you are selling a property, you should provide your Conveyancer with all of the documents provided to you when you purchased the property.  This may include guarantees for works, indemnity insurance policies and title deeds.  We would recommend bringing to the office all documents you hold, and we can then decide what is relevant and what my may not be.

You should also ensure you complete your ID checks promptly, whether these are in person at our office, or online via Thirdfort.

Finally, please ensure all of the instruction forms are completed and returned as soon as possible.  Your Conveyancer cannot work on your file until these documents are received.  Please ensure copies of all documents requested are included, such as proof of ownership and your own bank statement for the account you would like us to send your sale proceeds to after completion.  Please note this must be a current account rather than a savings account.

For a purchase, remortgage or transfer of equity, again ID checks are compulsory and key to starting your transaction.  We must also receive the completed instruction forms from you.

Where can I find the instruction forms?2023-07-13T17:18:14+00:00

All instruction forms are enclosed with the quotation email we send to you.  If you cannot locate these, please contact the office and the team will be happy to resend by email or post.

How long will it take to complete?2023-07-13T17:17:56+00:00

Every transaction is different.  It wholly depends on the length of the chain, which solicitors are instructed and how proactive the clients and solicitors are.

We work with you and aim for your timescale.  There are elements of the conveyancing outside of our control which may delay your transaction and we cannot comment on timescales of other parties in the transaction.

As a rough idea, provided all parties are committed and proactive as quick as 3 weeks, or as protracted as 10 weeks or more.  It really does depend on the intentions of the chain.

Our quickest transaction to date was 5 working days, on a chain free freehold purchase!

What is important to look for when choosing a Conveyancer?2023-07-13T17:20:32+00:00

There are three points to consider.

  1. Conveyancer’s workload – Does the conveyancer have capacity to take on your case and progress it proactively? Are they due any annual leave which may slow down your transaction? If they are, do they have adequate holiday cover?
  2. What service does the Conveyancer offer? Communication is key with conveyancing. It is a very emotive, stressful time and lack of communication is the biggest issue when chains stagnate.
  3. What does it cost? Conveyancing fees vary from solicitors to solicitors. It is important to ensure any quote you receive includes all costs which can be anticipated from the information you provide.  There may be unforeseen costs which appear during the transaction, but your Conveyancer should advise you immediately before continuing.  Unforeseen costs are rare and usual examples are unregistered properties, help to buy ISAs, gifted deposits, second mortgages or leasehold properties.

Unforeseen costs can be avoided by taking a little time to research the property at quoting stage to ensure you are obtaining a complete quote at the outset.

Costs are important for clients when dealing with property transactions.  We try and price ourselves competitively, but at a level where we can be confident clients receive good value for money.

What people say about us

This is the third time I’ve used Kim and quite frankly I would not use any other solicitor! Service outstanding as usual, regular updates and immediate responses to emails. Have recommended to family and friends. Yvonne was brilliant in dealing with matters in Kim’s absence. If you’re looking for a solicitor, look no further.
