A Simple Guide to Property Conveyancing

A Simple Guide to Property Conveyancing

The property conveyancing process can feel quite daunting and complicated for many people when they’re buying or selling a home. And with most people both buying and selling at the same time, it can feel twice as tough.

The excitement of finding a buyer, and the thrill of finding your new home, have to be put on hold for a couple of months while all the paperwork is done. Meanwhile, you have to deal with the anxiety of searches and surveys, and the inevitable delays and hold ups along the way.

But property conveyancing doesn’t have to be hard. With an experienced team like Holdens Law on your side, you can keep up the momentum of your move and make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible.

What is property conveyancing?

Property conveyancing is the legal process of transferring ownership of a property from one party to another. It has to be done by a qualified legal professional, such as a lawyer or a licenced conveyancer, and it has to follow a set series of steps to make sure all the details are right, and all the appropriate checks have been done, so you know exactly what you are buying or selling.

This means that you’ll have to pay for your conveyancing, and you can’t save money by doing it yourself. On the plus side, it also means that you have a professional team taking care of everything for you. All you have to do is complete and return the forms they send you such as a property questionnaire and a fixtures and fittings checklist.

The team at Holdens Law will take care of everything else, ordering and checking local searches, checking your survey on the property and compiling the formal contract for your sale.

Keeping you informed

However keen you are to get moving, property conveyancing takes time. However, at Holdens Law we speed things up as much as possible by staying in touch with you throughout, as Natalie Bradley, from our conveyancing team, explains:

“Here at Holdens Law, we know that the key to conveyancing is to keep in contact with our clients throughout,” she says. “That way we can get quick responses to any questions or queries and ensure that these decisions don’t cause any delay to the property conveyancing process.

“With Holdens Law, you’re never left in the dark. You’ll always know where the transaction is up to, so you can plan your move with confidence.”

Simplifying a complex process

You can see our step-by-step guide to property conveyancing on our website. This lays out every step of the process from initial instruction to completing the sale. As you’ll see there are lots of steps to work through to ensure your sale and/or purchase goes through smoothly and to the satisfaction of all concerned.

It is quite a long and involved process, but the good news is that most of the work is done by either your solicitors or the solicitors for your buyer/seller. As long as you deal with the requests from your solicitor promptly, then there should be no delays to your property conveyancing.

So, you can trust Holdens to guide you through the process in simple steps and plain English.
