Conveyancing is the process of legally transferring home ownership from one person to another (this is typically the seller and the buyer). This includes the whole process from making an offer on a property up until the keys are handed over to the buyer. The key stages of conveyancing are when contracts have been exchanged (this means that, everyone involved knows the transaction will proceed) and also completion, this is when everyone moves.
The length of the process can vary so much depending on different circumstances and each situation is different. Typically, (in the most straightforward situations) conveyancing for a sale/purchase of a home will take between 6 – 8 weeks. However many factors can change this, for example, if there is a property chain involved.
Mortgage lenders will only deal with a solicitor (or licensed conveyancer) throughout the transaction. Freehold transactions are usually less complicated than leasehold transactions but a solicitor is still necessary. Solicitors play an important part in the whole process, they will perform various checks and searches to ensure the sale of the property can proceed legally.
During the house buying process portions of the conveyancing fee will be paid directly to your solicitor, then after the completion (when you have the keys) you are required to pay any remaining conveyancing costs.
