What does a Ryde conveyancing solicitor do?

A solicitor oversees all post-offer aspects of purchasing a house or flat, and guides you through the legal side of buying a home. Your lawyer will order searches, raise questions for the seller, review the lease (if applicable) and handle post-completion tasks, including paying SDLT and HMLR registration.

Further to the standard checks and searches, Ryde conveyancing solicitors may also carry out coastal erosion and sea defence checks.

Are you buying a home with a mortgage?

When you buy a property with a mortgage, your mortgage lender must ensure the home's value will cover the value of the loan.

If your solicitor isn't accepted on your mortgage provider's panel, it may take weeks longer to purchase your property.

We work with lawyers who can represent the vast majority of lenders, such as Lloyds Bank, Tandem Money and Skipton Building Society - ensuring your transaction will complete without delay.

Selling a property in Ryde

The lawyer will advise on enquiries sent by the buyer's conveyancer and address potential issues.

Is there anything to be aware of if selling a leasehold property in Ryde?

The conveyancing process for a leasehold flat is much more difficult than for a freehold house.

The complex nature of leasehold property means that conveyancing solicitors in Ryde will need to conduct additional tasks, including getting all relevant freeholder information, through to ascertaining if a license to assign is required.

To help mitigate the delays involved in selling a leasehold property, It is highly recommended that you instruct a property lawyer as soon as possible, ideally before putting the property on the market.

What are typical Ryde conveyancing fees?

When you are comparing quotes, it isn't always easy to be certain you are comparing like to like.

Conveyancing legal fees

Your solicitor's quote will set out the legal fees (inc. VAT) to be paid when the conveyancing transaction completes. These legal fees are paid to your conveyancer for the work they carry out during your property transaction.


Your conveyancing quote should also itemise required third-party costs, or disbursements, including Stamp Duty and Land Registry fees.

Check the terms and conditions

Some solicitors' quotes include additional fees in the small print, leading to a higher final bill. When you compare conveyancing quotes, beware of hidden charges not mentioned in the initial conveyancing quote.
