Why do I need a conveyancer?

Conveyancing law is very complicated and often very time consuming.

And, mortgage lenders will insist on employing a solicitor or conveyancer to protect their interests. 

Conveyancing is all about transferring the legal title of a property from the seller to the buyer. Conveyancers initially check the seller holds the title to the property; they also arrange ‘searches’ to highlight any potential issues that might change your mind about buying the property.

Your conveyancer also organises the payment between both parties when the transaction completes, including the payment of stamp duty to HM Revenue & Customs.

This is a complicated legal process and an essential requirement when selling or buying a home. So you need to ensure that your conveyancing is done by someone experienced and properly qualified.

In theory, it is possible to do the conveyancing yourself, if you’re not taking out a mortgage.

But conveyancing law is very complicated and often very time consuming, so most buyers and sellers employ legal experts - either a solicitor or a licensed conveyancer. 

Licensed conveyancers are legal professionals who have been trained to deal with all aspects of property law. Ocean Property Lawyers are members of the Council for Licensed Conveyancers (CLC), which means we're fully qualified property law experts.

Our goal is to always work towards a quick completion, and a moving date that suits you - as well as others in the chain you are in. On average, we'd expect that conveyancing can be completed within twelve weeks, but there are quite a few legal factors that can affect this.

In particular, waiting for confirmation of your mortgage offer to arrive can often slow things down. So it's essential to arrange your mortgage as soon as you possibly can. 

That depends on whether you are buying or selling, and on the price of the property.

The type of property (freehold or leasehold) also makes a difference; leasehold property will cost a little more as there’s quite a lot of extra work involved.

We promise you'll find our prices are competitive, while the quality of service we provide is exceptionally high.
