Why do I need Conveyancing?

A professional conveyancer will undertake vital parts of the buying and selling process. This includes the exchange of contracts, the transfer of property ownership, performing property searches, and paying Stamp Duty on your behalf. A property is one of the biggest investments you'll make, so it's vital that the somewhat complex process is performed correctly.

A licensed Conveyancer or Conveyancing Solicitor will deal with all aspects of the legal paperwork involved when selling or buying your home.

The Conveyancing Process

The Conveyancer covers all legal aspects of a house sale spanning the contracts to completion day.

Alongside providing important legal advice, your conveyancer will:

Step 1

Perform local authority searches

Conveyancing searches reveal important information such as planning history

Step 2

Arrange payment of Stamp Duty

The cost of this tax is relative to your house price

Step 3

Pay Land Registry fees

Updating the registered ownership and paying the related fees

Step 4

Transfer funds from buyer to seller

The funds are safe and secure with a regulated conveyancer.

Step 5

Draw up or check contracts

This ensures all documents are correct and legal

Step 6

Exchange contracts

The exchange of contracts legally binds the deal

Saving money on your Conveyancing

Comparing costs when hiring a Licensed Conveyancer could lead to big savings.

Much of the cost of conveyancing is made up of fees paid by your conveyancer to third parties. These are known as ‘disbursements’ and are generally fixed or are relative to your house price. These will usually be the same with different conveyancers.

That doesn’t mean you can’t save a few quid. The legal fees charged by conveyancers and solicitors differs across the industry and could be the key to reducing the cost of the buying or selling process.

Conveyancing legal fees can cost as little as £400 to over £1,600, so comparison is important. Read our guide for a full breakdown of conveyancing fees.

How To Compare Conveyancing Quotes

Always ask for a full breakdown of Conveyancing costs and legal fees, as well as a description of services. By comparing up to 4 Conveyancers with Compare My Move, you’ll get a good idea of the best prices.

Some conveyancers offer their services for a fixed fee. This will likely be cheaper but may only include a stripped-down range of services. Make sure you’re fully aware of the services on offer, and whether or not they meet your needs and budget.

Do I need a Licensed Conveyancer or a Property Solicitor?

Licensed Conveyancers and Property Solicitors are both specialists in property law.

Which do you need? That depends on whether or not you’re buying or selling a property with particularly complex legal disputes.

Licensed Conveyancers focus entirely on property law, whereas solicitors are more likely to be multidisciplinary. This may lead to a higher cost and longer turnaround when using a solicitor, though their extended expertise would suit a property transfer fraught with litigation or disputes concerning other areas of law.

Whichever you choose, make sure you get a full rundown of the costs involved. We can help you compare quotes to ensure you get both the best service and the best price for your budget.
