The conveyancing process is simple when explained – And that’s what we’re here to do today.
Conveyancing involves legally transferring the ownership of your home to another or vice versa. Conveyancing begins at the initial offers stage right till when the house keys are handed over.
Conveyancers usually run the process – they are professional lawyers or solicitors. You can conveyance your house yourself, but it is difficult to do without professional help.
After you find a house you want to buy or sell you should then try and find a conveyancer. If you’ve been recommended one by family and friends then you should go with them.
We work on a panel; a panel conveyancing solicitor is a firm of solicitors who are on the panel of the mortgage lender i.e. a firm who has dealt with that particular Bank / Building Society before and shows that they have provided high service levels to the bank and the client.
DWS are on the panel for most major lending companies, get in touch for specific details.
The current owner of the home will most likely have a solicitor too, and they’ll send a draft of the contract with all documentation. Your solicitor will then examine these documents and raise your questions and concerns.
Before agreeing to anything, your conveyancer will advise you to do a property viewing or search – this allows you to view the home so find any potential hidden after costs or legal issues.
These could include: Local authority changes in the area, land registry, flood risk, mining or other environmental issues.
