Conveyancing Solicitors - More Information

What is Conveyancing?

When you buy or sell a house, there is a legal and administrative process set by the authorities. The term ‘conveyancing’ covers this process and includes the transfer of building ownership from one person to another.

The work includes;

  • Research on the property title
  • Preparing relevant documents that include exchanging contracts
  • Dealing with Stamp Duty Land Tax
  • Dealing with the Land Registry

This process can be complicated depending on your circumstances. It is highly recommended that you use legal services who have experience in dealing with very complicated matters, who knows what to expect and how to deal with these difficult situations.

Contact Swain & Co Solicitors’ property team today on 02381 120 076(Southampton) or 02393 873 627(Portsmouth) and find out more about how we can help.

How long will it take?

We will aim to complete the legal work on the transaction within a few weeks, but this will depend on your circumstances. For example, how many buyers and sellers are there involved in the transaction and if you are in a chain, how long we must wait for the other side to agree to the completion dates.

As there are likely to be delays, our team will be able to give you an indication of these, the cause, and a detailed explanation as to why when you make your first enquiry.

Why do I need legal assistance for conveyancing?

The process of conveyancing can be done by yourself if you have experience in the legal process. However, it can be complex and as you are dealing with large sums of money, a mistake could put everything at risk.

So why take this risk when you have other things to worry about? We have an experienced team of solicitors who have an excellent track record in handling complex situations and can guide you through the process to avoid the danger of you potentially losing all your savings

Buying or selling a property can be a very stressful process but by having one of our experienced solicitors in your corner, you will have peace of mind and can focus on making your new place a home.

Your conveyancing solicitor will always keep you informed every step of the way and more importantly act in your best interests throughout the process.

Contact Swain & Co Solicitors’ property team today on 02381 120 076(Southampton) or 02393 873 627(Portsmouth) and find out more about our very competitively priced services and how we can help.
