Ever wondered what happens during the conveyancing process?
Conveyancing is one of the most time consuming parts of any home move. It usually takes 10-12 weeks to exchange contracts and then a further 1-2 weeks from exchange of contracts to completion.

Prepare the property for transfer of ownership
Ask questions regarding the condition of sale and title
Check through the contract, advise of any outstanding costs, review the property boundaries and raise any enquiries
Arrange searches with local authorities to ensure there are no local development plans or sewers running close to the property and whether it is in a flood risk area
Liaise with your mortgage lender to ensure they have all information they need
Work towards exchange of contracts and register you as the new owners of the property
