Conveyancing – the truth

Conveyancing, in its simplest form, is the preparation of documentation for the transfer of the legal title of a property from one party to another. In reality it is more complicated than this – some of the major milestones are:

  • Issuing a package of Contract documentation in a sale and receiving one in a purchase;

  • Lodging Searches;

  • Checking the Title to the property;

  • Responding to enquiries raised in a sale and raising enquiries on a purchase whilst ensuring Client and Lender interests are protected;

  • Reviewing the results of Searches in a purchase and, if necessary, raising any enquiries with the Seller’s Solicitors;

  • Signing of the transaction documentation;Reviewing and dealing with any issues raised by a mortgage offer in a purchase;

  • Dealing with exchange of Contracts and completion and subsequently post completion matters including any necessary Stamp Duty Land Tax Return and the Land Registry application.

Our experienced and friendly team are here for you every step of the way and will guide you through the process in the most straightforward way possible.
