Conveyancing Process

This step by step guide has been written by our team of expert advisors in plain English to simplify and explain the conveyancing process. The process is broken into stages highlighting; what happens, what you can expect, and what you will have to do at each stage as a property buyer or seller or both. We Make the Legal Side Simple.

Conveyancing is the legal process of buying and selling a property that typically takes between one and four months. When you are planning to move home or buy a new property, you need to know all the costs involved and exactly what to do to help your solicitor or conveyancer complete the transaction. In-Deed can help you kick-start the process by giving you a detailed estimate of all the costs involved. Tell us about the property you’re buying or selling and we’ll give you an instant quote.

As soon as you give In-Deed the go-ahead, we will appoint your solicitor or specialist conveyancer to act for you in your sale and/or purchase. Officially you instruct the solicitor – instruct simply means give the go-ahead to act on your behalf in the legal transaction.

You have instructed a solicitor or specialist conveyancing through In-Deed. Now your legal representative can start work on preparing the contracts for exchange in a sale or purchase.

The exchange of contracts means you are legally committed to buying or selling a property. A completion date is set and neither buyer nor seller can back out after this point.

When your conveyancer or solicitor exchanges contracts with the other party’s solicitor, they will agree on a completion date that suits both of you.

This is the moment you have been waiting for. Your conveyancer or solicitor will confirm all the funds have been successfully transferred and that the ownership of the property has passed from the seller to the buyer.

The hard bit is now done for your sale or purchase. While there may be certain details still to finalise – for example, your solicitor will have to submit forms to the Land Registry or pay Stamp Duty Land Tax to HMRC – you can now concentrate on planning your move.
