What will my solicitor do?

For a property purchase, your conveyancer will address all the legal details of transferring ownership from the seller to the buyer.

Your solicitor will order searches, raise questions for the seller's solicitor, review the contract of sale and ensure that post-purchase requirements, like paying SDLT, are completed.

Beaconsfield conveyancing solicitors may also carry out checks related to listed buildings and properties in conservation areas or green belt land.

Purchasing a property with a mortgage?

Whether you are a first-time buyer or buying a second home, your solicitor must also complete legal work for your lender.

If your lawyer is not on your lender's panel, your purchase could take weeks longer to complete.

Our chosen panel lawyers have established relationships with the majority of lenders, such as Lloyds Bank, Aldermore Bank and Skipton Building Society - helping to ensure your transaction completes faster.

Selling a property in Beaconsfield

When selling a property in Beaconsfield, the solicitor will prepare vital paperwork, including title deeds and the TA6 and TA10 property information forms, and help you fill out this paperwork.

The solicitor's role involves dealing with complications like a dispute with the freeholder, answering enquiries from the buyer's solicitor and redeeming the mortgage.

The solicitor will coordinate with all stakeholders, like estate agents, landlords and lenders, to make sure your home move completes as soon as possible.

Does sale conveyancing take longer for leasehold?

Yes, compared to freehold conveyancing. The conveyancing for selling leasehold properties typically takes longer.

The buyer's solicitor must review this leasehold-related paperwork, including a copy of the freehold property's buildings insurance. Typically, delays are due to the time needed by to source this information.

Your conveyancing solicitor should start this process as soon as possible, because these details could take several weeks to collect if it is difficult to contact the agent responsible for managing the property or they are slow to respond.

What are typical Beaconsfield conveyancing fees?

Some of the fees included in conveyancing quotes can be unfamiliar, especially for first time buyers.

Legal fees

Your conveyancing solicitor's quote will set out the legal fees (inc. VAT) that you'll pay when your transaction completes. These fees are what your solicitor or conveyancer charges you for the legal services they provide on your behalf.

Disbursements

Your conveyancing quote should also itemise required third-party costs, or disbursements, including Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT), HM Land Registry fees and property searches.

Check the T's & C's

Some solicitors' quotes may set out extra costs in their terms and conditions. This can mean a higher-than-expected final bill. Make sure you question any charges not set out in your initial quote, if you are comparing quotes.
