"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.

They kept us informed every step of the way from first meeting to completion.  We would not hesitate using Wilford Smith again when we decide to upgrade our property."

What is the reason for engaging a conveyancing solicitor in Rotherham?

Residential property transactions require conveyancing. This involves transferring ownership, including buying, selling, and granting a mortgage. It can be overwhelming and complex. Wilford Smith provides a personalised service to make the experience stress-free from inquiry to completion of sale.

Property transactions are significant and can cost a lot of money. Conveyancing involves a lot of legal paperwork. A conveyancing solicitor manages this paperwork and helps transfer the property's legal title from the seller to the buyer. It's crucial to pick a competent conveyancing solicitor with attention to detail to make sure the process runs smoothly.

Wilford Smith offers comprehensive and expert assistance for property buyers and sellers.

Could you provide an explanation of the process of conveyancing?

The residential conveyancing process is long and complicated. The seller's solicitor requests a copy of the property's registry entry to start. Then, the seller's conveyancing solicitor creates a contract for sale with important information from the registry entry. This contract is sent to the buyer's solicitor for review.

The property buyer's solicitor checks the property. Local authorities, water authorities, and other providers conduct searches. Solicitors for both parties raise legal queries. An agreement must be reached for the sale to complete. The final stage is the exchange of contracts, where the property officially changes hands. After this, neither party can retract the sale.

Residential conveyancing encompasses a range of transactions pertaining to residential property, such as the buying and selling of houses. Legal professionals specialising in conveyancing can offer counsel on related services.

What is the average duration of the conveyancing process in Rotherham?

It's difficult to estimate how long a conveyancing transaction will take. If the seller has left the property, the sale can be completed quickly. The same goes for buyers with a mortgage. However, if the property is still occupied or the mortgage isn't secured, exchanging contracts will take 4-6 weeks. Completion will take another 2-4 weeks, making the entire process around 10 weeks.
