What does a conveyancing solicitor do?

In a property purchase, the conveyancing solicitor will handle all the legal elements of buying a home.

Your solicitor will order searches, raise enquires of the seller, review the contract of sale and take care of tasks after the sale, like paying SDLT and registering the property ownership with the Land Registry.

Further to the standard checks and searches, Catterick Garrison conveyancing solicitors may also undertake checks for national Park-related issues (Yorkshire Dales, North York Moors) and flood risk checks.

Purchasing a home with a mortgage?

Whether you are buying a shared-ownership property or buying a property to let, your solicitor must also complete legal work for your lender.

We work with solicitors who can represent the vast majority of banks and building societies, facilitating a quicker completion of your transaction.

Conveyancing for a leasehold property is significantly more technical than it is for a freehold home.

To help mitigate the delays involved in selling a leasehold property, It is recommended that the vendor contact a lawyer as early as possible.
