Conveyancing For First Time Buyers

Buying and selling property is a complicated legal process, which is virtually impossible to undertake alone. It is highly advisable for those who are considering buying or selling, to seek the advice and services of an experienced property solicitor during the agreement and transaction processes.

A property solicitor is needed as soon as an offer has been placed on a property, so it is a good idea to find one that you are confident with as early as possible, to avoid having to make any rushed decisions. One of the best ways to find a good property solicitor is to ask family and friends for their personal recommendations. It is generally best to ask family and friends who have bought a property in the same area that you are searching in, or selling in. It is also worth asking your estate agent for any local solicitor recommendations. There are many firms who can offer nationwide services, and many of these will be available to view online, so doing a little research on the internet is also a good way to find an experienced property solicitor.

The purpose of a property solicitor is to handle all the legal aspects of any transaction, be it a sale or a purchase, or both! They will be responsible for drawing up a mortgage deed, which will set out the conditions of your loan. They will then supervise the transference of the property title to you, which is known as completion; the agreement is then legally binding.

The cost of conveyancing services can vary greatly depending on the cost of the property that you are buying or selling. It will also vary depending on whether the property is leasehold or freehold. If the property is leasehold, there will be more work involved checking the lease, so any property solicitor’s fees will be slightly higher. When searching for the best price, it is always a good idea to ask a few different providers for a quote, and then to compare and contrast them. This is easy to do either via telephone or email, and some websites will also offer an online form which can be filled in with a few details. It will be necessary to submit the price of the property which you intend to buy or sell, and to state whether it is freehold or leasehold. With this information, any firm should be able to provide a quote for their services, which can then be compared with those offered by others. It is also important to clarify exactly which services each quote includes, so that you are aware of what you will be getting for your money from each firm.

Choosing an experienced conveyancer or property solicitor is an essential step when buying or selling a house, as they will be able to take care of all the legal aspects of your sale or purchase. This can often be a very lengthy process, but having an experienced solicitor to oversee the legal aspects is a good way to ensure that it goes as smoothly and quickly as possible.
