Conveyancing Process Explained

Obtaining your conveyancing quoteWhilst it is possible to undertake the legal work yourself, most of us do not have the experience or appropriate legal knowledge, and sensibly decide to instruct a solicitor. Focus on fixed-fee quotes that have a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, but ensure that you check the small print for any additional fees.

This requires you to read carefully, approve and sign the solicitors contractual terms and conditions.

At this stage of the conveyancing, the property buyer will be in receipt confirmation of the mortgage from their lender by this point of the conveyancing.
