Our conveyancing fees – how much does our conveyancing cost in Amersham?
Most of the property transactions we deal with can follow a similar conveyancing process, so we are able to provide fixed, straightforward fees for the majority of our clients. In cases where a transaction will take longer or be more complex than standard transactions, we let clients know in advance as well as how much their conveyancing will cost. We are very transparent with our pricing system.
Other costs are involved with the typical conveyancing process, including disbursements (such as the cost of searches or registering a property with HM Land Registry) and tax. As your conveyancers, we will be able to confirm which charges are applicable to you, as well as how much you will be required to pay.
How does the conveyancing process work in Amersham?
There are three stages to conveyancing, which are:
- Offer and acceptance
- Exchange of contracts
When a buyer makes an offer which is accepted by the seller, a verbal contract is entered. From here, both parties are required to instruct solicitors to begin the conveyancing process for them.
The buyer and their solicitors will organise various checks to be carried out on the property, including:
- Reviewing property information provided by the seller and making further enquiries if necessary (done by the conveyancing solicitor)
- Conducting conveyancing property searches, such as local authority checks (done by the conveyancing solicitor)
- Carrying out an independent survey (done by the buyer)
These checks are done to provide an honest and accurate analysis of the property the buyer is choosing to purchase. If they are satisfied with the checks and wish to go ahead with the purchase, the exchange of contracts can be completed. At this point, the transaction is legally binding.
When completion of the transaction occurs, a property transfer deed is submitted to HM Land Registry and the previous owner is required to hand over the keys to the new owner.
How long does conveyancing take in Amersham?
Every property transaction is different. They each come with their own challenges and their own level of risk, so no two transactions will take the exact same amount of time as the other. Based on our experience in dealing with various property transactions, we estimate the average conveyancing process to take 12-14 weeks from the date at which we are instructed.
Sometimes, delays can happen for one reason or another. We are an honest and reliable team who will keep you abreast of the situation and will let you know when delays come about.
What searches are involved in conveyancing in Amersham?
When buying a property in the UK, your conveyancing is required to carry out a variety of checks to look for any potential issues with your transaction.
The following conveyancing searches are required:
- Local authority checks – to check the surrounding area for planning, pollution, highway, pollution or other related issues
- Environmental searches – to check for issues such as flooding or land contamination
- Water and drainage searches – to check matters such as water and drainage access
We always inform clients if additional checks are required, ahead of time.
