Additional Information for Conveyancing
Explanation of terms
Key stages of the conveyancing process
What does your quote include?
Our fees cover all the work required to complete the sale or purchase of your home, including dealing with registration at the Land Registry and dealing with the payment of Stamp Duty Land Tax (Stamp Duty) if the property is in England, or Land Transaction Tax (Land Tax) if the property is in Wales.
Our fee assumes that:
a. this is a standard transaction and that no unforeseen matters arise including for example (but not limited to) a defect in title which requires remedying prior to completion or the preparation of additional documents ancillary to the main transaction
b. this is the assignment of an existing lease and is not the grant of a new lease
c. the transaction is concluded in a timely manner and no unforeseen complication arise
d. all parties to the transaction are co-operative and there is no unreasonable delay from third parties providing documentation
e. no indemnity policies are required. Additional disbursements may apply if indemnity policies are required.
How long will my purchase/ sale take?
How long it will take from your offer being accepted until you can move in to your new home or sell your existing one will depend on several factors. The average process takes between 10-12 weeks. It can be quicker or slower, depending on the parties in the chain. For example, if you are a first-time buyer, purchasing a new build property with a mortgage in principle, it could take 8 weeks. However, if you are buying a leasehold property that requires an extension of the lease, this can take significantly longer, between 3 and 4 months. In such, a situation additional charges would apply.
Who will be dealing with my matter?
Your matter will be dealt with from start to finish by one of our experienced conveyancers. This will either be a solicitor or Chartered Legal Executive. We currently have three members in our “team” who may work on your matter, we try to ensure that you deal with the same person from start to finish but there may be exceptions, for instance if one of the team are on annual leave. Regardless of who deals with your matter they will be supervised by Bill Singh, who is the Head of the Department.
