Whether you are buying or selling, conveyancing is a necessary part of the process. But what is it?
In most cases, the legal work involved with a property sale and purchase is undertaken by a solicitor or licensed conveyancer.
You can’t beat a recommendation. If someone else has had a good experience then there’s a good chance you will to so ask your friends, relatives and colleagues and see if they can give you a good start.
If you would like any assistance with instructing a legal representative please speak to your local TwoCan branch. We are constantly working alongside many conveyancers and can recommend one to suit your needs.
Once you have decided which option suits you best, get some quotes and compare services and prices. Remember to keep things in perspective when comparing quotes. You will be buying a property worth hundreds of thousands of pounds, so don’t let a few hundred pounds get in the way of securing your dream home.
The sooner the better, but definitely before you find a property you want to buy.
It isn’t unusual for a seller to leave their property on the market until the estate agent has proof of how you intend to finance the purchase (normally a mortgage agreement in principal), and details of which solicitor you are using.
If you delay in providing those details to the agent, another buyer could legitimately sneak in and secure the property while you are trying to sort out who to represent you. So, if you haven’t already done so, start your enquiries today.
