What do Thirsk conveyancing solicitors do?

A conveyancer or solicitor helps you with the legal aspect of buying a property. The solicitor will order property searches, raise questions for the seller's solicitor, review the contract of sale and handle post-completion tasks, such as paying Stamp Duty.

Further to the standard checks and searches, Thirsk conveyancing solicitors could also undertake checks for national Park-related issues (Yorkshire Dales, North York Moors) and flood risk checks.

Are you buying a home with a mortgage?

As part of the conveyancing process, your solicitor also has to handle legal due diligence on behalf of the lender. Your transaction could take weeks longer to complete if your conveyancer is not on your lender's panel.

We work with lawyers who can represent the vast majority of mortgage lenders, helping to facilitate a faster completion for your purchase.
