What does a conveyancing solicitor do?

A property lawyer plays a key role after an offer has been accepted, and guides you through the legal side of the transaction.

They will order property searches, raise questions for the seller's solicitor, review the contract of sale and fulfil post-completion formalities, such as paying SDLT.

Our chosen partner solicitors have established relationships with the majority of building societies, banks and lenders, ensuring your transaction will complete without delay.
