Our conveyancing fees – how much does our conveyancing cost in Wellingborough?
We offer a fixed fee for straightforward conveyancing work, which covers all tasks required from us to complete the property transaction for you. We will provide this fee to you, along with details of what these costs involve, so that you can make an informed decision on whether to work with us.
You will also be required to provide funds for HM Land Registry and conveyancing searches, as well as for tax payments where applicable (such as Stamp Duty Land Tax and Capital Gains Tax).
Some transactions will require additional tasks and therefore, will incur additional costs. Bear in mind that we will make you aware of these additional costs ahead of time.
How does the conveyancing process work in Wellingborough?
The conveyancing process consists of the following stages:
- Offer and acceptance
- Exchange of contracts
The exchange of contracts is the point at which you are legally bound to the transaction. Before this point, you will have the chance to review contracts, make sure you’re happy with the checks carried out, and determine whether or not you are willing to proceed with the transaction. After the exchange of contracts, you will not be able to back out of the contract without incurring a financial penalty.
The buyer’s support team will carry out a variety of checks on their property ahead of the exchange of contracts. Standard checks and searches include:
- 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)
Once all parties are satisfied, completion will take place. At this point, the transfer of property ownership is official, a transfer deed will be submitted to HM Land Registry, and the conveyancing process comes to an end.
How long does conveyancing take in Wellingborough?
Every property transaction is different because of the individual parties involved and their current situation. Some transactions won’t involve a chain, whereas others may be lengthy. Different situations can affect the time it takes for the conveyancing process to complete, which is something to be aware of ahead of instructing your solicitor.
Our experience has shown us that the more simple and straightforward conveyancing transactions take between 12 and 14 weeks from start to finish. If we believe your transaction will take longer than this, we will let you know well in advance.
What searches are involved in conveyancing in Wellingborough?
Searches for conveyancing in Wellingborough consist of the same searches carried out nationally. They involve:
- 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
Should any additional checks be required for your own specific translation, we will let you know in advance.
