What does a property lawyer do?

A conveyancer or solicitor plays an essential role during a property purchase, and steers the buyer through the legal aspects of buying a property. They will raise enquires of the seller, order searches, review the contract of sale and complete any post-sale actions, including registering the property ownership with the Land Registry.

In addition to standard searches, Haxby conveyancing solicitors could also undertake checks for national Park-related issues (Yorkshire Dales, North York Moors) and flood risk checks.

Selling a house or flat in Haxby

As part of the property selling process in Haxby, your solicitor will prepare the necessary documentation, including the title deeds and property information forms, and help you fill out these forms.

They will respond to inquiries from the buyer's solicitor, sort out potential snags and redeem the existing mortgage.

Your solicitor will also work with both sides, like estate agents, landlords and lenders, so your sale is completed successfully.

Does the conveyancing for selling leasehold take longer?

Yes, that's correct, it can take considerably longer to carry out the conveyancing on a leasehold house or flat when compared to conveyancing on a freehold house.

The buyer's conveyancer will expect to see these documents, including a copy of the freehold property's buildings insurance. The time it takes to source this information is usually the cause of these delays.

It could take several weeks to collect this information if the landlord or managing agent is slow or difficult to contact, so your lawyer ought to start this process as soon as possible.

Solicitors' fees

These fees are what your conveyancer charges you for the work they complete for you. The quote will set out the legal fees (inc. VAT) to be paid when the conveyancing transaction completes.


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 title search.

Check the T's & C's

Some solicitors' quotes list extra charges in the small print. This can mean an inflated final bill. Watch out for undisclosed fees not included in your original quote, when comparing quotes.
