What does a conveyancing solicitor do?

A conveyancing solicitor is responsible for the legal aspect of transferring property ownership. Our solicitors in Warwick assist with buying and selling property, taking care of the legal work including carrying out the necessary checks and informing the land registry. A conveyancing solicitor will also handle all transfers of funds and talk directly to the lender to make the process easy for both parties.

Working with a licensed conveyancer helps to avoid common problems that may arise from the sale and purchase of the property. You can also avoid additional charges and hidden costs that may arise further down the line by working with an experienced team. Mistakes in the conveyancing process can lead to many problems in the future. Mistakes in conveyancing can be very costly to amend.

Choosing your conveyancing solicitor

It’s a common misconception that you have to work with the conveyancing solicitors recommended by the estate agent. This isn’t the case. You’re free to shop around to find the best conveyancing solicitors for your needs. Shop around local and national law firms to find one that suits your needs. You don’t have to choose a conveyancing solicitor in your local area, but it may be helpful. If you are purchasing or selling property in Warwick, Leamington Spa or throughout Warwickshire, our experienced team can help.

Frequently asked questions

Can you negotiate conveyancing fees?

When conveyancing solicitors provide a fixed fee, there often isn’t much room to negotiate. If you are paying an hourly rate, there may be something you can do to keep costs down. Remember that cutting costs on conveyancing could cost you in the long term. A simple mistake could cost thousands to fix further down the line. If you are concerned about the legal costs, make sure you get a comprehensive quote for your solicitor's fees upfront so you aren’t surprised by any unexpected legal fees.

What are the stages of conveyancing?

There are six stages to the conveyancing process. These are:

1. You choose your conveyancing solicitor. They will provide a Letter of Engagement and confirm the Terms of Business. You need to sign and return this with a copy of your ID before this stage can move forward.

2. Your solicitor will receive a draft contract from the seller. They will then begin the relevant searches. This could take 2-3 weeks to complete, depending on the responsiveness of the Local Authority.

3. Contracts are exchanged. At this stage, both parties need to agree on a completion date. At this stage, you are legally bound to purchase the property.

4. Your residential conveyancing solicitors draw up the Transfer Deed so the property can be registered in your name. You should now receive a final statement outlining the fees so you can make sure the figure is in your bank account on closing day. Your solicitor will carry out the final checks with the Land Registry.

5. Completion day. Your solicitor transfers the money due. Once this has been received, the keys will be released by the seller, or more commonly by the Estate Agent.

6. After completion, your solicitor will arrange to pay any Stamp Duty Land Tax. Finally, the property details will be updated with the Land Registry.

If you are confused about any step in the process, the Pearcelegal team can help.

Is it better to use a local solicitor for conveyancing?

You do not have to use local conveyancing solicitors in Coventry, but many find that it helps. A local conveyancing solicitor will know the area and will be able to conduct the relevant research and checks with ease. It also helps if you can visit your conveyancing solicitor to sign paperwork and speed up the process.

What does a conveyancer do?

A conveyancing solicitor plays an important role in the sale and purchase of the property. Conveyancing is the legal transfer of property ownership. The conveyancers will handle the contracts, provide legal advice, carry out local council searches, update the Land Registry, and transfer the funds to pay for the property.

When should I instruct a conveyancing solicitor?

Instructing a conveyancing solicitor before your offer has been accepted can speed up the process because many of the initial steps can be completed in advance. This could take weeks off the conveyancing process. If you’re in the process of buying a property, we recommend getting in touch with our team to find out the best time to start working with us.

Are conveyancers the same as conveyancing solicitors?

While they are allowed to do the same work, conveyancers are not property lawyers. They do not deal with any other aspects of property law. A conveyancing solicitor is trained in all aspects of the law but specialises in conveyancing. A conveyancer is only qualified to carry out conveyancing tasks. The Pearcelegal team of conveyancing solicitors are experienced in all areas of property law.

Who can manage my property sale?

Selling your property requires as much legal oversight as buying. We recommend working with regulated solicitors to help simplify the process and ensure nothing interrupts the sale. While it is not technically required, any legal process where a lot of money is exchanging hands will benefit from the oversight of a legal professional.

Do I need a conveyancing solicitor for shared ownership?

Yes, you will benefit from the support of a conveyancing solicitor when purchasing a shared ownership property. The current housing market is very competitive and the average property price is rising. To help avoid these higher costs, some are turning to shared ownership to make their application more likely to be accepted by a mortgage lender. A shared ownership scheme is more complex than outright ownership, particularly if it is also a leasehold property. We will help you to navigate this process and make sure you get a fair purchase price.
