What is conveyancing?
If you’re a first-time buyer, it’s likely that the word ‘conveyancing’ is new to you so, what exactly does it mean? The term ‘conveyancing’ refers to the legal work carried out in a property transaction. Following a buyer’s offer being accepted, both the seller and the buyer will instruct their respective solicitors to begin the process of conveyancing. There are various stages involved in this process which will differ depending on whether you are a buyer or a seller. Both sides will need to assess the others’ information carefully to ensure it is comprehensive and legal before a contract can be drawn up and exchanged.
During your initial appointment with one of our expert conveyancing team, we will lay out exactly what work needs to be carried out and let you know what we need from you in order to move forward with your transaction. You can rely on us to provide clear and easy to digest information at every stage, keeping you in the loop from offer through to completion.
How long will the conveyancing process take?
Generally speaking, conveyancing and the exchange of contracts should take between 10-15 weeks. However, the length of time can vary and will depend on a number of factors. For example, if you still need to arrange a mortgage and are experiencing complications, this could impact the overall time involved in conveyancing. A conveyancing “chain” can also slow the process down; when the buyer is waiting for the seller to evacuate their property, but the seller is waiting for another party to do the same so that they can move out.
The conveyancing process is more complex than many people assume, and usually involves a number of third parties. Through our vast experience within this area of law, we have come across pretty much every problem that may be thrown up, so we know how to deal with issues before they become harmful to the transaction.
