What does a conveyancing solicitor do?

A property lawyer plays an essential role during a property purchase. The solicitor will order property searches, raise questions for the seller's solicitor, review the contract of sale and ensure that post-purchase requirements, including paying Stamp Duty, are completed.

Further to the standard checks and searches, Ledbury conveyancing solicitors could also undertake rural property checks, including farming and agricultural land.

Will you be taking out a mortgage?

During the conveyancing process, your solicitor also has to take care of legal matters for your mortgage bank. If your conveyancer isn't accepted on your mortgage provider's panel, it may take many weeks longer to complete the purchase.

Our chosen panel solicitors have established relationships with the majority of mortgage lenders, so you can complete your purchase without delay.

How much does conveyancing cost in Ledbury?

Conveyancing fees

The conveyancing quote should clearly detail the legal fees, including VAT, to be paid when the conveyancing transaction completes. These fees are what your solicitor or conveyancer charges you for the legal work that they complete during your property transaction.

Disbursements

The conveyancing quote should also include any disbursements, which are third-party costs, such as Stamp Duty and Land Registry fees.

Check the quote for hidden costs

Some solicitors' quotes set out additional charges in their terms and conditions, resulting in a higher-than-expected final bill. When comparing quotes, make sure you question any charges not set out in your initial quote.
