What do conveyancing solicitors do?

For a house or flat purchase, the conveyancing solicitor will handle all the legal elements of the transaction. Your lawyer will order searches, raise questions for the seller's solicitor, review the contract of sale and take care of tasks after the sale, such as paying Stamp Duty Land Tax and HMLR registration.

Further to the standard checks and searches, Northfleet conveyancing solicitors would also undertake chalk mining searches.

Are you purchasing a home with a mortgage?

During the conveyancing process, your solicitor also has to take care of legal matters for your bank or building society. Lender panel approval will mean your solicitor is able to represent your chosen lender.

Our chosen partner solicitors have established relationships with the majority of banks and building societies, so your conveyancing will complete sooner.

Conveyancing for a leasehold property is a great deal more protracted than for a more straightforward freehold house.

To reduce leasehold-related delays, It is highly recommended that the seller instruct a lawyer as soon as possible.

What are typical Northfleet conveyancing fees?

Don't be surprised if some of the costs listed on a conveyancing quote seem unfamiliar.

Conveyancing fees

These legal fees are paid to your conveyancer for the work they carry out during your transaction. The quote should clearly detail the legal fees, including VAT, that you'll pay when your transaction completes.

Conveyancing disbursements

Your quote should also list any disbursements, which are costs paid to third parties on your behalf, including Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT), HM Land Registry fees and property searches.

Check what's included in your quote

When comparing quotes, watch out for undisclosed fees missing from the original quote. Some firms include additional fees in their terms and conditions. This can mean a higher-than-expected final bill.
