Are all conveyancing fee calculations the same?

No!  When you compare conveyancing fees, do make sure that you check the small print.  Some conveyancers will give a low headline figure that suggests it is cheap conveyancing.  However, when you check more closely there are things lost in the small print!  So, check like for like, and critically, check the total price of one conveyancing quote and the next.

What does a Conveyancing Solicitor do?

A conveyancing solicitor will handle all of the legal part of your move (whether you are buying or selling a house).   This conveyancing process will include:-

  1. CONTRACT PACK – this includes the contract of sale, and various sellers info forms
  2. SEARCHES – these will include a local search; enviro search; and water & drainage
  3. MORTGAGE – your solicitor will prepare a mortgage report
  4. PRE-CONTRACT-ENQUIRIES – the final step before exchange of contracts
  5. EXCHANGE CONTRACTS – the point at which everyone is finally bound in law to the contract
  6. COMPLETION – the day of the big move

After completion your solicitor will register you as the owner, and lodge any mortgage with the Land Registry if you have taken a mortgage.

If you are buying jointly with someone else, your conveyancing solicitor will advise you on the differences between a joint tenancy and tenancy in common.
