What is Residential Conveyancing?

Conveyancing can be described as the entire administrative and legal process that has to be completed before ownership of a property is transferred to another person.

When you decide to buy or sell a property, transfer equity or apply for a re-mortgage, our conveyancing solicitors will be by your side.

The Administrative and Legal Process

We understand that buying or selling a new house can be stressful and complicated for most people, which is why we will guide you through the entire administrative and legal process with ease.

We believe in transparency, and therefore will be clear from the start about exactly what fees you will be charged and what guidance you can expect from our solicitors.

Our Residential Conveyancing Services

You will likely require the services of a conveyancing solicitor when you are buying or selling a house, re-mortgaging your current home or transferring part of the equity to another person.

  • Re-Mortgaging

    It may be in your best interest to change your current mortgage provider after its initial competitive fixed rate has expired.

    When you choose to re-mortgage your current property, you need to enlist the services of a solicitor. We can manage the entire re-mortgaging process for you and offer our assistance in finding the best deal suiting your individual needs.

  • Transfer of Equity

    As a property owner, you may wish to give or sell a part of your property to a spouse or child as your life changes.  You may also wish to remove someone from ownership of the property, for instance when a separation occurs.

    A transfer of equity is also known as a transfer of title and occurs when someone is added or removed from the title deeds of a property. The process of transferring equity is relatively easy, however it does require the assistance of a solicitor.

Searches

Conveyancing solicitors most commonly spend their time with sale and purchase processes, which generally start with carrying out the ‘searches’.

Searches are the enquiries submitted to the local authorities and utility companies to ensure the property is registered to the seller and to map out any potential risks to the future value of the property.

Searches will expose considerations such as planning permissions for future projects close to the property, the proximity of public sewer pipes and environmental factors such as contaminated land and flood risks in the area.

The exact searches you require will depend on the property and location it is in.

Optional Searches

As many searches are actually optional, you may decide not to carry out certain searches on your new property.

It is recommended to always instruct your solicitor to carry out all the searches that are relevant to you, as searches give you great insight into any threats to the value of your property.

The local council could be planning on introducing new extra-large billboards in your street or have given planning permission to businesses that could harm the areas’ image.

Why Searches Are so Important

What if a new factory, noisy car garage or large betting hall is going to be built right down the street? Or worse, what if the environment changes completely due to the creation of a new landfill or power plant nearby?

External factors outside of your control can cause serious harm to the future value of your property, leading to costs that are far greater than the small charge of the search.

Your solicitor will be able to give you a clear understanding of the type of searches you should include and what risks you take if you choose not to.
