Conveyancing services


If you are either buying or selling a property, or are involved in any type of mortgage transaction, you may well require the conveyancing services of a specialist solicitor to help you with the complex process.

The conveyancing process might be one which centres on the most important financial decision that you are ever likely to make, and as such it is imperative that you obtain expert legal advice.

Recent times have seen an increase in online conveyancing, and the Land Registry’s development of e-conveyancing has meant that even more solicitors are providing conveyancing services in what is now an extremely competitive area of service.

The cost of conveyancing

Furthermore, the large amounts of money involved mean that there is the need for clear contractual obligations, and those who provide conveyancing services must be aware of the certain regulations in place regarding money transactions. In fact, when looking at the issue of mortgages, many lenders insist that a solicitor is used during the process.

Conveyancing fees are often reflected in the nature of the transaction, as they can be very complicated and time consuming. This is because the work needs to be done thoroughly as there is a high level of liability on the conveyancer and buyer or seller if they are deemed to be negligent in their roles.

Thus, a conveyencer should generally endeavour to provide appropriately guaranteed conveyancing solutions from:

  • Searches on the history of the property
  • Searches on ownership
  • Searches on boundaries
  • Searches on defects
  • Careful drafting of the contract for sale
  • Drafting of a lease if appropriate
  • Ensuring payments of deposits
  • Providing any necessary general advice required by their client

Other conveyancing solutions which businesses and clients require can also include Energy Performance Certificates under new government guidelines.

The process of conveyancing can often take a very long time, especially if commercial parties are involved. It is therefore clear that an efficient and cost-effective conveyancing service is required, and obtaining legal advice will ensure that the transaction is completed as quickly as possible and without incurring any unnecessary costs caused by a failure to fully understand the intricate procedures.
