What does a Tiverton conveyancing solicitor do?

Your conveyancer plays a pivotal role in a property purchase.

They will raise questions for the seller's solicitor, order searches, review contracts, and fulfil post-completion formalities, like paying Stamp Duty Land Tax.

Tiverton conveyancing solicitors may undertake checks for issues related to mundic, flood risk, radon and tin mining searches.

Are you financing your purchase with a mortgage?

When you buy a property with a mortgage, the bank or building society that's giving you the mortgage will verify that the property meets their mortgage criteria.

If your conveyancer isn't accepted on your bank's panel, it may take many weeks longer to complete the purchase.

Over 100 banks and specialist lenders have approved our chosen panel lawyers, so we can help you complete your Tiverton transaction without delay.

Selling a property in Tiverton

For the sale of homes in Tiverton, your conveyancer will arrange all the necessary documentation, including the contract of sale and assorted property information forms, and will help you answer these forms.

Duties include handling obstacles like a landlord dispute and responding to the buyer's solicitor's enquiries.

Your lawyer will communicate effectively with all parties, like agents, lenders and landlords, to make sure your transfer of ownership is completed without incident.

Does a leasehold property take longer to sell?

Compared to freehold property, yes. The conveyancing for selling a leasehold home usually takes longer.

The buyer's solicitor will want to see this leasehold-related paperwork, including a copy of the freehold property's buildings insurance. Delays are usually caused by the time it takes the solicitor to gather this paperwork.

Your conveyancing solicitor should get this underway even before a sale has been agreed, because these details can take a long time to gather if the agent responsible for managing the property is slow or difficult to contact.

How much should I budget for conveyancing in Tiverton?

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

Solicitors' fees

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


Your conveyancing quote should also itemise required third-party costs, or disbursements, such as Local authority searches, Stamp Duty or bank transfer fees.

Check for hidden costs

When you compare conveyancing quotes, watch out for undisclosed fees missing from the original quote. Some firms list extra charges in their terms and conditions, resulting in a total cost that's much higher than the initial quote.
