What does an Amesbury conveyancing solicitor do?

A conveyancing solicitor plays an essential role during a property purchase transaction, and assists you with the legal aspect of buying a property.

Your solicitor will carry out comprehensive due diligence on the property, including ordering property searches, raising enquires of the seller and ensuring necessary funds are correctly transferred.

In addition to standard searches, Amesbury conveyancing solicitors may carry out checks associated with military or air rights, as the county is home to military bases and restricted airspace.

Are you financing your purchase with a mortgage?

If you are getting a mortgage, your solicitor will also need to act for your mortgage lender.

If your property lawyer isn't accepted on your bank's panel, it could take weeks longer to buy your house.

We work with conveyancers who can represent the vast majority of banks and building societies, ensuring your transaction will complete without delay.

Leasehold property

Selling a property in Amesbury

For the sale of an Amesbury home, the solicitor will arrange all the necessary documentation, such as the sale contract and property information forms, and will help you answer these forms.

Their duties entail answering the buyer's solicitor's questions, overcoming hurdles such as a planning issue and redeeming the mortgage.

By taking action to coordinate with all parties, like estate agents and banks or building societies, your lawyer will help make sure your sale of your home completes as soon as possible.

Does a leasehold property take longer to sell?

Correct, it can take much more time to carry out the conveyancing on leasehold houses or flats, compared to freehold conveyancing.

The buyer's conveyancer will expect to see this leasehold-related paperwork, including a copy of buildings insurance for the common parts of the property. Typically, delays are due to the time it takes your solicitor to source this information.

The seller's solicitor should get this underway as soon as possible, because these details could take several weeks to collect if it is difficult to contact the managing agent or they are slow to respond.

How much does conveyancing cost in Amesbury?

Conveyancing legal fees

The conveyancing quote should clearly detail the legal fees, including VAT, to be paid when the conveyancing transaction completes. These fees are what your conveyancing solicitor charges you for the legal services they provide during your property transaction.

Disbursements

Your quote should also list any disbursements, which are costs paid to third parties on your behalf, including Local authority searches, Stamp Duty or a commons registration search.

Are the conveyancing fees fixed?

When comparing quotes, watch out for additional charges. Some firms include extra costs in the small print. This can mean a final bill that is higher than the original quote.
