What does a conveyancing solicitor do?

A conveyancer or solicitor handles all of the post-offer aspects of buying property, and leads you through the legal side of buying a home.

They will raise questions for the seller, order property searches, review contracts and take care of tasks after the sale, such as HMLR registration.

Southall conveyancing solicitors may carry out checks for leasehold issues, such as excessive service charges and ground rents.

Will you be taking out a mortgage?

As part of the conveyancing process, your solicitor also has to handle legal due diligence on behalf of the bank or building society. If your solicitor isn't accepted on your mortgage provider's panel, it may take weeks longer to purchase your property.

Our chosen panel solicitors have established relationships with the majority of banks and specialist lenders, helping to facilitate a faster completion for your purchase.

Selling a house or flat in Southall

The sale of a Southall property will require the solicitor to first prepare the necessary documentation, including the TA6 and TA10 property information forms and the draft contract.

The conveyancer will reply to the buyer's solicitor's inquiries and resolve any potential issues. The solicitor will also communicate effectively with the other parties, like agents, lenders and landlords, confirming that the home move completes without a hitch.

Does a leasehold property take longer to sell?

Correct, it can take much longer to carry out the legal work to sell a leasehold home, compared to freehold conveyancing.

The buyer's solicitor will expect to see these documents, like a copy of the freehold property's buildings insurance and an up-to-date statement of service charges. The time needed by to gather this paperwork is commonly the source of delays.

It can take a long time to gather this paperwork if it is difficult to contact the agent responsible for managing the property or they are slow to respond, so your lawyer should start this process as soon as possible.

What are typical Southall conveyancing fees?

Getting an online conveyancing quote is simple - but knowing what the quote does and does not include can be tricky.

Disbursements

Your quote should also list any disbursements, which are costs paid to third parties on your behalf, including Local authority searches, Stamp Duty or a title search.

Check for additional fees

Some firms include extra costs in their terms and conditions. This can mean a final bill that is higher than the original quote. Beware of extra fees, if you are comparing quotes.
