The Role of a Conveyancer
Conveyancing is the legal term given to the process of buying and selling a house or transferring ownership of the property. A conveyancer can be one of your biggest assets in ensuring the sale goes without a hitch.
Who uses Conveyancing?
If you are buying, selling or remortgaging a house you will need to undertake conveyancing.
Choosing the Right Conveyancer
It’s definitely worth taking the time to find a good conveyancing solicitor. Take the extra effort to locate a professional and experienced provider to ensure your conveyancing is conducted as swiftly and agreeably as possible.
Unfortunately there are some less-than-reputable providers out there, but with the right knowledge it’s easy to avoid them. Ask for recommendations when choosing a conveyancer by talking to friends or family who have bought a property in the area.
How Long Does Conveyancing Take?
This can vary depending on a great number of factors, however the average house conveyancing process should take between eight and twelve weeks.
The fee charged will vary from between locations and conveyancers in the same area.
Typically you will pay around £450 plus VAT for buying and £450 plus VAT for selling on a property priced up to £125,000. This rises to £650 plus VAT for properties up to £500,000.
The conveyancing fee is made up of the provider’s basic fee in addition to a list of itemised disbursements, which are fixed costs incurred by the provider, which are then passed onto you.
