Conveyancers or specialist solicitors liaise with your mortgage company and the seller’s solicitor and deal with all the legal documentation that’s required to transfer ownership of the property from the seller to you.
That’s not all they do, though. Initially, they will carry out various searches to discover any potential issues with the property and the surrounding area. They will check the local councils for relevant building works and the Environment Agency and utility companies to find out if your home is at risk of flooding, if there’s radon gas under the property, and more. The conveyancer will also check with the Land Registry and existing freehold/leasehold documents to confirm the boundaries of the property and whether the seller has the legal right to sell it.
Once all the paperwork is complete, your conveyancer will confirm how much stamp duty you must pay to the government – and once that is done, they will register you as the new owner of your property with the Land Registry.
If your transaction does not proceed, our affiliated solicitors will not charge you a legal fee. However any fees (disbursements) that may have been paid out on your behalf will not normally be refunded. Certain conditions may require additional legal services. Any such services will be notified to you prior to any costs being incurred.
All the solicitors are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and comply fully with their code of conduct.
All the conveyancers are regulated by the Council for Licenced Conveyancers (CLC) and also comply fully with their code of conduct
