What is involved in the residential conveyancing purchase and sales process?

At Farani Taylor, our highly experienced conveyancing solicitors will ensure your property transaction is perfectly executed, saving you time, expense and worry. 

Our residential conveyancing solicitors will support you through a range of services, delivering quality and expertise with every transaction.

The sales process can be an overwhelming matter, particularly for first-time buyers but our solicitors will talk you through every facet of the process, ensuring that you are fully aware of every stage. A typical residential conveyancing process will follow the below stages.

  • Offer accepted 
  • Information pertaining to title deeds and redemption fees will be gathered.
  • Information is then provided to the buyer to examine. At this stage, if you have any questions before the contract is carried out, you should raise them.
  • Conveyancing searches are carried out
  • If you and your solicitor are satisfied with the findings, contracts will be signed.
  • A completion date is given upon agreement with each party
  • Completion forms are provided to the buying party’s solicitors and signed
  • Funds are obtained from the buyer’s mortgage provider
  • Once these stages are completed your solicitor will ensure all checks and finalisations are made and keys can now be exchanged

The sales process for property transactions is very similar. If you would like further details on what’s involved when selling your property, please get in touch with our team of experts, who will be happy to detail your requirements for you. 

This is not a comprehensive description of the process but merely a brief overview. Every sales or purchase process is different and you should seek expert legal advice from a knowledgeable, residential conveyancing solicitor to provide further details for your circumstances.

How long will the conveyancing take

The process for conveyancing can unfortunately not be accurately predicted. There are many variants that can impact the process from the length of the chain, transaction type, and of course the speed of other parties involved with the transaction. Usually, a straightforward transaction should take between 8-12 weeks for completion from the date of instructing a residential conveyancing solicitor. For an auction-bought property, the completion must be carried out within 28 days of an agreed fixed date.

Can I do my own conveyancing?
Open Can I do my own conveyancing?

You can of course complete your own conveyancing, however, it is always useful to at least receive some free legal advice from an expert. Property law is complex and without the correct legal understanding and experience, it can be a seemingly never-ending process attempting to understand the legal jargon and legislation in place. Please bear in mind the only costs you will lose by doing it yourself are solicitors fees, you will still have to pay for all land searches and stamp duties, etc. Whilst this might seem like a cost-effective option, be mindful that incorrect applications, searches, and fees can soon mount up, and more often than not, it’s more advisable and cost-effective to seek the help of an expert from the very beginning.
