What do conveyancing solicitors do?

A conveyancing solicitor plays a pivotal role in a purchase.

The solicitor will raise questions for the seller's solicitor, order searches, review the contract of sale, and take care of tasks after the sale, such as registering the property ownership with the Land Registry and paying Stamp Duty Land Tax.

In addition to standard searches, High Peak conveyancing solicitors could also undertake radon gas searches and checks for additional planning restrictions associated with AONB.

Buying a property with a mortgage?

During the house buying process, your solicitor also has to take care of legal matters for your lender.

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

Our chosen partner solicitors have established relationships with the majority of banks and building societies, including Santander, Vida HomeLoans and Newcastle Building Society, facilitating a quicker completion of your transaction.

Getting a conveyancing quote online takes moments - but understanding what is and isn't included in the quote can be challenging.

Legal fees

These fees are what your conveyancing solicitor charges you for the work they carry out. Your conveyancing solicitor's quote should clearly detail the legal fees, including VAT, to be paid when the conveyancing transaction completes.

Disbursements

Your conveyancing quote should also itemise required third-party costs, or disbursements, such as Stamp Duty and property searches.
