Conveyancing FAQs

When can I sign the contract?

Once all property searches have returned and any surveys have been carried out, enquiries can be raised. The other party will need to satisfy each of these and check the property's fixtures and fittings are as expected. Once all enquiries are resolved and the seller has provided the required paperwork, a completion date will be arranged.

What are property searches?

Property Searches are an important part of the buying process. They contain essential information about the property to protect the buyer from any nasty surprises. The most common searches are the Land Registry check, which is compulsory by law, the Local Authority Search, the Drainage and Water Search, and the Environmental Search. Depending on the location and conditions of the property being purchased, further searches may also be requested by your conveyancer.

How much is stamp duty?

If you are buying a property for more than £125,000 and are not a first time buyer, you will have to pay Stamp Duty Land Tax. First-time buyers (assuming all partners in the purchase are first time buyers), will only pay Stamp Duty beyond £500,00. Use our stamp duty calculator to work out how much will you pay: Stamp Duty Calculator

What is conveyancing?

Conveyancing is the legal process of changing the title of a property from one name to another. This changes the legal ownership of the property from the original owner to the new one. Read more on the subject of what is conveyancing, here.

What is the first step in the conveyancing process?

Once you have instructed a conveyancer, they will reach out to the other side and discuss the draft contract, address, and any pre-contract queries. A draft contract will be drawn up containing information from the property's title deeds, the buyer and seller details, and how much the buyer is paying for the property.

What is the difference between exchange and completion?

Exchange refers to the exchanging of contracts. Both conveyancers will read out the contract over the telephone to ensure they are identical and then send them to each other. Once exchanged, the contract is legally binding. Completion refers to the date the big move can take place. It is usually set for midday. When the seller's conveyancer confirms that all monies due have been received, the seller will drop off the keys at the estate agent for the buyer to collect.

How do your conveyancing quotes work?

Our desire is to give the most honest representation of your expected fees when giving you a quote. We have to do this in the absence of full knowledge. If you were to ask for a quote on a size 7 pair of shoes for a lady, and that was the only information you gave, you can imagine that the quote would need to be a large range, and would have to make a few assumptions. Luckily we have agreements with a network of conveyancers that allows us to give a fixed fee for the legal part of this. In fact every online conveyancing quoting system has the same problem. So we all lean on the parts we can control and quote on that. We have to walk a line of making assumptions that will give wildly high quotes for some customers and wildly underquote others. We aim to be as clear as we can on this, and word our quotes in such a way that we are not guilty of dishonesty. We encourage you to read your quotes, read our terms and conditions, ask our staff about things you don't understand, and make informed decisions.

What should you pay for a conveyancer?

The average price for legal fees is difficult to pin down due to the variation of factors influencing the final figure. However typically you should expect to pay between £500 and £1500. Note that on top of these fees there are usually mandatory government and other disbursements such as search costs and stamp duty.
