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:

Perform local authority searches

Conveyancing searches reveal important information such as planning history

Arrange payment of Stamp Duty

The cost of this tax is relative to your house price

Pay Land Registry fees

Updating the registered ownership and paying the related fees

Transfer funds from buyer to seller

The funds are safe and secure with a regulated conveyancer.

Draw up or check contracts

This ensures all documents are correct and legal

Exchange contracts

The exchange of contracts legally binds the deal

What are Disbursements?

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.
