How Your Leiston Solicitor Will Complete the Conveyancing

Deciding on a conveyancing quote

Before the conveyancing process can begin, you must select a conveyancing solicitor.

Focus on quotes that have a no move, no fee guarantee, but ensure that you check the small print for hidden fees.

Instructing your selected solicitor

Once you have ascertained which conveyancing quote you would like to go with, the next step is to instruct them.

This initial step will require you to go through, consent to and sign the solicitors terms and conditions.

The pre-contract stage

Exchanging contracts

Contracts are exchanged, and the buyer pays via their conveyancing solicitor the deposit (usually ten percent of the sale price, but this is negotiable).


On the day usually specified in the contract, the purchaser will then collect the keys to their new home after the sellers solicitor certifies that they have received the funds that is due.
