What do Selsey conveyancing solicitors do?

For a house or flat purchase, a lawyer will handle the legal aspects of buying a property.

Selsey conveyancing solicitors would also undertake searches for flood risk.

Are you buying a property with a mortgage?

If you are buying with the help of a mortgage, your solicitor will check the property to confirm that the property is worth the loan that the lender will provide.

If your conveyancing solicitor is not on your chosen mortgage provider's panel, your purchase could take significantly longer to complete.

We work with conveyancers who can represent the vast majority of lenders, from major banks like Co-operative Bank to smaller, specialist lenders including Lendinvest - so you can complete your purchase without delay.

What is and is not included in an online conveyancing quote isn't always clear at first glance.

Conveyancing legal fees

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

Disbursements (costs payable to third parties)

The conveyancing quote should also include any disbursements, which are third-party costs, 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 extra costs in the small print, resulting in an inflated final bill.
