Online conveyancing FAQs

If you have any questions, please feel free to call us and we will do our best to answer them. In the meantime, we are setting out below replies to some of the queries that are raised most often.

How long will my conveyancing take?

The length of time taken to complete your conveyancing will often depend on how many properties are in the chain. This is the number of buyers or sellers that are reliant on each other’s transactions. Because everyone will need to exchange contracts at the same time, everyone in the chain needs to be ready before the transactions can proceed.

Issues that can delay conveyancing include problems revealed during a survey, problems with the legal title and delays in receiving essential paperwork such as search results and mortgage offers. On average, you can expect conveyancing to take 8-12 weeks to complete with flats generally taking longer than houses.

How much does conveyancing cost?

The costs of conveyancing include legal fees and other related expenses such as search fees, Stamp Duty and the Land Registry’s fee for registering your new property into your name. If you ring us, we can go through all of the costs with you and provide you with an accurate quote.

You can also download our free guide to conveyancing fees which provides a substantial amount of information.

Do I need a survey for buying a house?

You are always advised to obtain a survey if you are buying a property to check that it is in good condition. The type of survey you request will depend on the property. If it is less than fifty years old, of standard construction and in good condition, you may be happy with a standard survey.

If the property is older, of unusual construction, in poor condition or you would like to carry out major works or alterations, you are generally advised to obtain a more in-depth survey.

In any event, you should not simply rely on your mortgage company’s valuer’s report as this may be quite cursory.

Is it faster to use online conveyancing?

It can sometimes be faster to use online conveyancing as you will not need to rely on post or going in to see your conveyancer if you use an online portal.

It is important to make sure that your online conveyancing includes expert solicitors dealing with the transaction however, as you need to have the reassurance of knowing that, should a legal complication arise, your conveyancer has the expertise you need to resolve it without delay.

If you choose to use us, we can deal with your transaction via our online system from the start, opening a file straightaway and providing a streamlined questionnaire tailored to your situation.
