Conveyancing is the legal term for buying a house, selling a house, changing the ownership of your house, for instance into joint names. It can also include re-mortgaging your house or taking out a new mortgage.
Buying and selling your house doesn’t have to be difficult. We offer all the help and legal advice you will need to help ensure the conveyancing process is smooth, secure and satisfactory.
When buying or selling a property, you should instruct a solicitor to handle the conveyancing. Buying a property will probably be the largest single investment you make and it is very important that the transfer of ownership of the property is dealt with properly.
The cost of conveyancing depends on the price of the property and whether you are buying or selling. Leasehold property will attract an increased charge to reflect the extra work involved.
How long the conveyancing process takes depends on a number of factors. Including the time taken for the mortgage to be issued and searches returned, the complexity of the transaction, and the state of readiness of other parties to the chain. An average timescale is between 6 and 10 weeks.
