Conveyancing

conveyancing services

Conveyancing is the administrative and legal side of buying or selling a property, when solicitors prepare title deeds and confirm ownership. Once your offer to purchase has been accepted by the seller, we can introduce you to one of our preferred solicitors who will act on your behalf throughout the conveyancing procedure.

This is a general outline of the conveyancing procedure:

Seller:

  • Completes property information forms to be sent to the buyer
  • Helps to answer queries from the buyer by providing background information about the property

Buyer:

  • Arranges the survey/valuation
  • Arranges the mortgage
  • Provides money for searches
  • Provides the deposit or balance of deposit in time for exchange of contracts

Seller's solicitor

  • Obtains Title Deeds from the Land Registry
  • Finds out how much is outstanding on the existing mortgage
  • Drafts the contract and send to the buyer’s solicitor together with supporting documentation
  • Answers queries raised by the buyer’s solicitor
  • Negotiates any points raised
  • Reports to the seller that contracts are ready to be exchanged

Buyer's solicitor:

  • Checks the contract, supporting information and forms
  • Raises enquiries
  • Carries out the searches and reports to the client on the same
  • Negotiates any points raised on contract with seller’s solicitor
  • Checks the mortgage offer and reports to the client with the mortgage deed for signature
  • Checks the finances with the buyer
  • Reports to the buyer with the contract for their signature
