Whether you are buying or selling a property you will need to appoint a Solicitor to take care of the legal aspect of your property transaction.

We have a business relationship with local Solicitors who we can recommend and would be happy to provide you with reasonable no obligation quotes.

We have compiled the guide below to explain how the conveyancing process works :

  • Offer accepted on a house – You will need to appoint a solicitor
  • Client Care Pack & AML – Provide proof of ID documentation to solicitor and complete relevant forms
  • Draft Contract – The seller’s solicitor will prepare the draft contract and send to the seller’s solicitor
  • Searches – The buyer’s solicitor will apply for searches. This is time dependant on local authorities
  • Enquiries – Enquiries are raised by the buyer’s solicitors directly to the seller’s solicitors
  • Mortgage Offer – This will be sent by the lender to the buyer, their solicitor and financial advisor. The mortgage deed must be signed by the buyers before exchange/completion
  • Contracts – When all enquiries have been reviewed and resolved the solicitors will send out the contracts and if relevant, the transfer deed ready for signing
  • Completion date – A completion date will need to be agreed between the buyer and seller prior to exchange of contracts
  • Exchange – The solicitors date the signed contracts to make them legally binding. They will then issue a completion statement to the buyer. The buyer’s solicitor will order the mortgage funds for completion from the lender
  • Completion – The buyers solicitors transfer the funds to the seller’s solicitor and once the seller’s solicitor confirms that they have received this, the keys can be released to the buyer. Usually, keys are collected from the agent, however, other arrangements can be made
