"Wilford Smith took us through the process of buying our very first home together.  As people know, this is a very stressful time but thanks to them the process was smooth and straightforward.

What is the purpose of hiring a conveyancing solicitor in London?

Conveyancing is necessary for residential property transactions. It involves transferring ownership from one person to another. This includes buying, selling, and granting a mortgage. The process can be complex and overwhelming for those involved. At Wilford Smith, we provide a personalised service to make the experience stress-free, from inquiry to completion of sale.

Buying or selling property is a major transaction, often costing hundreds of thousands of pounds. The conveyancing process involves a lot of legal paperwork. A conveyancing solicitor handles this paperwork, working with their client to transfer the legal title of the property from seller to buyer. To ensure a smooth transaction, it's important to choose a conveyancing solicitor with expertise and attention to detail to guide you safely through the process.

Wilford Smith provides a thorough and professional service to assist with the buying or selling of your property.

Can you explain the process of conveyancing?

The residential conveyancing process is often lengthy and complex. It starts with the seller's solicitor requesting a copy of the property's registry entry. The conveyancing solicitor for the seller then prepares a contract for sale, which includes important information from the registry entry. This contract is then sent over by the seller's solicitor for the buyer's solicitor's review.

The buyer's solicitor will perform checks on the property. Searches will be carried out by local authorities, water authorities, and other providers. Legal queries will be raised by solicitors for both parties at this stage. An agreement must be reached before the sale can be completed. The final stage is the exchange of contracts, where the property officially changes hands. After this, the sale is concluded and cannot be retracted by either party.

Residential conveyancing involves various transactions related to residential property, including buying and selling of houses. A conveyancing solicitor can provide advice on related services.

What is the typical timeframe for the conveyancing process in the UK?

Conveyancing transactions vary, so it's hard to estimate how long your sale or purchase will take. If the seller has left the property, the sale could be completed quickly. If the buyer has a mortgage, the sale could also be finalised fast. But if the property is still occupied or the mortgage isn't yet secured, exchanging contracts will take 4-6 weeks. Completion will then take another 2-4 weeks, making the entire process around 10 weeks.
