For homeowners about to move, conveyancing can be one of the most complicated parts of the moving process. My Law Matters understands the frustration felt by homeowners trying to get their heads around the process.

Conveyancing is the legal process of transferring ownership of a property from one party to another. Commonly referring to the whole of the legal-administrative work undertaken to enable a house sale or purchase to be legally valid, it is undertaken by solicitors or specialist licensed Conveyancers.

We will provide you with expert legal advice and guidance for every stage of conveyancing, giving you the simple, reliable and cost-effective service, you deserve.

Breakdown of the Conveyancing Process

Your conveyancing provider will contact the seller’s solicitor to obtain the contract pack. You will have the offer on the property accepted. Have your mortgage approved after their valuer has inspected the property. Arrange for a survey to be conducted by a regulated Chartered Surveyor.
Your conveyancing provider will request and obtain a copy of your mortgage offer and carry out the necessary local authority searches.
Your conveyancing provider will analyse the contract pack, results of local authority searches and your mortgage offer and report back to you with the important details. They will then discuss possible completion dates with you and negotiate a date with your seller’s conveyancing provider. You will then tell your mortgage provider the most appropriate completion dates. Review the information presented to you, asking any questions if necessary. Sign the final contract and return it to your solicitor.
Your conveyancing provider will then inform the seller’s solicitor you wish to proceed with the contract exchange and send the deposit to your conveyancing provider.
Your conveyancing provider will swap signed contracts with the seller’s conveyancing provider. Send the deposit payment to the seller’s conveyancer.
Your conveyancing provider will prepare the completion statement and send this to you. Carry out priority searches and tell you to arrange building insurance.
Your conveyancing provider will prepare the transfer deed. You will then need to study, sign and return the transfer deed.
Your conveyancing provider will send the signed transfer deed to the seller’s conveyancing solicitor and request finances from your mortgage lender.
Your conveyancing provider will transfer payment for the house (minus the deposit) to the seller’s conveyancer and receive title deeds, transfer deeds and proof of any outstanding mortgages have been redeemed. You will then collect the keys to your new house once instructed by the seller’s solicitor and move in!
