The conveyancing process is a legal one and the properte conveyancing services or solicitor will ensure that a property’s deeds, or land it sits on, are transferred from the seller to the buyer. They also oversee any mortgage transfer to a new lender. They are a vital part of the house buying or selling process and should be considered carefully.
Which part of conveyancing takes longest?
While it is not a legal requirement to have a conveyancer, it is highly recommended as they can help you avoid costly mistakes. When seeking quotes, make sure to give the conveyancer full information about the property; it is very easy for costs to rise if they aren’t given a complete picture e.g. whether it is leasehold, involves a Help to Buy deal or requires extra searches.
A good conveyancer will be able to keep you up-to-date with how the process is progressing and answer any questions you have. They will be a key link to the rest of the property chain so it is important that they are well-organised and responsive. They should also keep you up-to-date with any problems or delays that may arise and offer a clear line of communication.
