What does a conveyancing solicitor do?

A property lawyer handles all of the post-offer aspects of buying property. They will order searches, raise enquires of the seller's solicitor, review the contract of sale and take care of tasks after the sale, including HMLR registration.

Further to the standard checks and searches, Ryton conveyancing solicitors would also undertake searches for historic mining and industrial activity and flood risk.

Selling a house or flat in Ryton

As part of the property selling process in Ryton, the solicitor will prepare vital paperwork, including the title deeds and the TA6 and TA10 property information forms, and help you fill out these forms.

The conveyancer's role involves overcoming hurdles such as an absent freeholder and responding to enquiries from the buyer's solicitor.

Your solicitor will also coordinate with both sides, like agents, lenders and landlords, ensuring that the sale of your home completes quickly.

Does it take longer to sell a leasehold property?

Compared to freehold property, yes. The legal work for selling a leasehold house or flat can result in long delays.

The buyer's conveyancer will expect to see this leasehold-related paperwork. These could include an up-to-date statement of service charges and a copy of the freehold property's buildings insurance. The time it takes the solicitor to source this information is usually the cause of these delays.

It can take weeks to collect this paperwork if the managing agent is slow or difficult to contact, so the seller's solicitor should start this process even before you have found a buyer.

Conveyancing costs in Ryton: What to expect

Conveyancing solicitors fees

These fees are what your conveyancing solicitor charges you for the work they complete during your property transaction. Your conveyancing solicitor's quote will detail the fees for the legal work, including VAT, that you'll pay when your transaction completes.


The conveyancing quote should also include any disbursements, which are third-party costs, such as Stamp Duty, property searches and telegraphic transfer fees.

Check the T's & C's

When comparing quotes, beware of extra fees. Some solicitors' quotes include additional fees in the small print. This can lead to an inflated final bill.
