Understanding conveyancing

Conveyancing comprises supervising the transfer of a property between a buyer and seller, and completing and filing all related legal paperwork to change ownership.

As soon as you make, or receive, an offer on a property, and that offer is accepted, the conveyancing process begins, and after the money has changed hands and the contracts signed it comes to an end.

Any solicitor is qualified to practice many different legal areas, so could carry out conveyancing on your behalf. But normally you would contract a dedicated solicitor specialised in conveyancing, or a licensed conveyancer, to act in your best interests.

In England and Wales, to act for you a law firm need to be regulated by the SRA (Solicitors Regulations Authority) and certified by the Law Society, and licensed conveyancers will need to be registered by the CLC (Council for Licensed Conveyancers).

Do I need a conveyancer?

For you and the other side to meet the legal conditions of the transaction, you will need to engage a solicitor licensed to undertake conveyancing work. They will take care of the legalities of the transfer of ownership, and other legal issues which might crop up.

If you are getting a mortgage, your lender will expect you to employ a conveyancer from their panel. So check that your solicitor is on the panel of your mortgage lender.

How much is conveyancing?

What is included in the conveyancing quote?

A conveyancing quote from a solicitor itemises your fees, searches and disbursements. The law firm’s time and labour is covered under the standard fees. Any other expenses that are incurred during the transaction are passed onto you directly as disbursements, with no additional fee. Examples of disbursements are Land registry fees, water, environment and local authority searches, and SDLT (Stamp Duty Land Tax). If the expenses are liable for VAT then this is calculated at source and passed on to you, examples of which include identity verification services and TTs (telegraphic transfers).

Please check our Stamp duty calculator to calculate how much SDLT you will pay on yoru property transaction.
