What is conveyancing?

This is the legal transfer of home ownership from the seller to the buyer and it starts when an offer on a house from a buyer is accepted by the seller. The process completes when the house keys are handed over to the new buyer on instruction from their solicitors or conveyancer/s. Both sellers and buyers need to go through the conveyancing process. It is always a good idea to choose your conveyancer or solicitor as early as possible, around the same time that you choose your estate agent, as this will help reduce delays.

Care should be taken when choosing a solicitor. Cost will obviously be a factor, but simply picking the cheapest quote is a recipe for disaster. It is vital to ensure the solicitor you instruct specialises in property and has an established track record in conveyancing. For most people their house is the biggest asset they will ever own so it is vital to have a specialist solicitor dealing with this for you.

There are steps in the conveyancing process for both sellers and buyers. These steps are your obligations and requirements which should be explained to you by your estate agent and / or your chosen conveyancer. At Anthony Allen Estate Agent Limited , our aim is to get our customers ‘transaction ready’ to keep the conveyancing process as short as possible and stress free. This can mean helping our sellers get relevant documents ready before an offer comes in from a buyer. It is our aim to keep our customers informed throughout the whole process, liaising with both seller’s and buyer's solicitor to keep the process as smooth as possible.
