What is conveyancing?
Conveyancing is the legal transfer of a property from one owner to another. During the process a conveyancer completes a number of key stages to ensure the property is ready to exchange contracts and complete the sale/purchase. They also aim to ensure all third parties, e.g. mortgage lenders and estate agents, are up to date to avoid unnecessary delays.
An overview of the conveyancing process:
- We take your instructions and you send us your ID to being proceedings.
- The seller’s solicitor prepares the contract and sends it to the buyer’s solicitor.
This involves drawing up a contract and requesting title deeds from the land registry.
- The buyer’s solicitor carries out searches, reviews the house survey and makes enquiries on the contract.
This involves requesting a number of searches e.g. local authority searches, land registry searches, and environmental and water searches, to find out more information about the property. As well as reviewing the survey and the contract to raise any concerns or questions with the seller’s solicitor.
Once the seller’s solicitor has responded to the enquiries and the solicitor and buyer are both happy the contract is approved.
- We prepare for exchange of contract.
- You sign the contract and contracts are exchanged with the other side.
- We prepare for completion.
This includes carrying out final searches and requesting a mortgage advance.
- Completion and you get your keys.
Once completed, we pay the stamp duty and register your purchase with the Land Registry.
