Conveyancing refers to the legal processes that are involved in the transfer of ownership of a property from one party to another. There are various factors involved in the conveyancing process, some of which can be complex, so, whilst it is possible to complete the conveyancing process yourself, most people hire a conveyancing solicitor or licensed conveyancer. This is due to the sheer amount of time it can take to go through the required steps and the, often complicated, legal jargon used. When you instruct a conveyancing solicitor they will act on your behalf to ensure that the process runs as smoothly as possible and make sure that title deeds to the property in question, and the land on which it stands, is transferred correctly and legally. There are also additional administrative and legal tasks that your conveyancing solicitor will undertake which can vary depending on whether you are buying or selling a property or if there are any other complexities to the process.Get in touch

The average costs for conveyancing in the UK vary depending on a number of factors, chiefly, the complexity of the conveyancing process and the location of the property. The average freehold home in the UK will cost, approximately, £1,040 in solicitors fees to buy a property and £1000 to sell. These estimates are based on the average cost of a home in the UK and are inclusive of VAT. There may also be additional costs associated with your house purchase or sale which one should definitely be aware of before proceeding. Costs such as Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) can significantly increase the costs of moving home and should always be budgeted for. SDLT prices vary depending on the cost of the property you are purchasing but can add up to significant sums of money. Search fees should also be considered in any budgeting. There are a wide variety of searches that can be undertaken, such as environmental and land registry, some of which are required, others will be advised. The fees associated with these searches can, fairly quickly, mount up . The solicitors we have chosen at Conveyancing Local have been selected based on their experience and professionalism.
