If you're buying or selling a property, you'll need to use the services of a conveyancer and may be wondering just how to go about finding a good conveyancer and what exactly they will do.
What Do UK Conveyancers Do?
Asking who will be dealing with your conveyancing is one of the first questions from any estate agent arranging the sale or purchase of your home or business property. A good conveyancer has the ability to conduct a legal sale or purchase on your behalf and also ensures your rights are protected throughout the transaction. Solicitors, Chartered Legal Executives and Licensed Conveyancers are legally qualified to offer services of this nature, and you should be able to find a number of local professionals offering services, whether you're buying or selling a property.
How To Pick A Conveyancer
If you're wondering how to choose a conveyancer, some of the essential features are discussed below.
Conveyancers need to be great communicators, so choose the professional that is willing to take the time to explain the intricacies of property law to you and also offers high levels of client communication within the conveyancing package. After all, you will be paying for this service, so it's important you are kept in the loop about your property transaction.
And, finally, your property conveyancer needs to be able to offer guarantees that the service will be delivered by due dates. The last thing you expect from any professional advisor is a string of missed appointments or unanswered telephone queries.
Role Of The Conveyancer
Your conveyancer has to carry out a variety of tasks for any property sale or purchase. Some of these are discussed below.
If you're buying a property, some of the jobs your conveyancer carries out include:
- Checking the contract and arranging any alterations with the vendor's solicitor
- All property searches
- Ensuring the contract is correct and all searches and queries resolved
- Making sure the relevant completion date is adhered to and that all funds are transferred in time for the exchange of contract and completion of sale
- Making Stamp Duty Land Tax submissions
- Registering your title to the property with the Land Registry
When it comes to conveyancing your property sale, your professional conveyancer acts to ensure all negotiated terms are included within the draft sale agreement and carries out other administrative tasks associated with the sale. Once the sale has been completed, your conveyancer pays off any mortgage that is due and returns any balance sum to you.
