Conveyancing is the legal process of transferring ownership of a property from one person to another. It includes several steps such as conducting property searches, managing contracts, dealing with the Land Registry, and transferring the funds to pay for the property. It is a critical part of any property transaction, be it a purchase, sale or remortgage.
The importance of having a skilled, knowledgeable conveyancer cannot be understated. A conveyancer not only safeguards your interests in the transaction but also ensures that all legal obligations are met, and the transaction completes within the necessary legal framework.
At Ramsdens Solicitors, our conveyancing team prides itself on providing a personalised, high-quality service. We believe in the importance of clear communication, and our clients receive regular updates on their case progress.
During the conveyancing process, a variety of searches and checks to uncover any potential issues that could affect your use or enjoyment of the property, or its value. These typically include:
At Ramsdens Solicitors, our team conducts these and other necessary searches as part of our comprehensive conveyancing service, providing you with peace of mind in your property transaction.
In the process of residential conveyancing, exchange and completion are two significant milestones that represent different stages of the property transaction.
The period between exchange and completion can vary depending on the parties' agreement, ranging from the same day to a few weeks later.
If a property sale falls through before the exchange of contracts, either party is free to withdraw without incurring a penalty. However, any costs incurred, such as solicitor's fees or survey costs, will usually still need to be paid.
If the sale falls through after the exchange of contracts, the party withdrawing from the transaction may face severe financial penalties. For example, if the buyer pulls out, they may lose their deposit. If the seller withdraws, they could be sued for breach of contract.
Technically, it is possible to carry out the conveyancing process yourself, without the assistance of a solicitor or licensed conveyancer. However, it is not recommended that you attempt this.
The conveyancing process involves complex legal work, including conducting detailed property searches, understanding planning and local authority information, dealing with the Land Registry, managing the funds for the purchase, and more. Mistakes or oversights can lead to significant issues, potentially resulting in financial loss or legal problems.
By choosing Ramsdens Solicitors, you can be assured of a professional and thorough conveyancing service. Our experienced team of conveyancing professionals will guide you through each step of the process, offering peace of mind and ensuring your property transaction runs smoothly.
