Here at Bird & Co, we have a range of fees to suit each of the conveyancing services we offer in Wimborne.

How does the conveyancing process work in Wimborne?
There are three phases to the typical conveyancing process:
- Offer and acceptance
- Exchange of contracts
The process begins when an individual looking for a property makes a suitable offer to a seller. At this point, the two parties enter a verbal agreement and are required to instruct solicitors to assist them throughout the process.
Together, the property’s buyer and their solicitors will work through a number of checks to look for any issues that need to be rectified in order for the transaction to proceed. These checks 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)
If all parties are happy to proceed once the checks have been completed, the transaction can move to the exchange of contracts. This is when contracts are reviewed and, if both parties are satisfied with what they find, they will sign and exchange, at which point the agreement becomes legally binding.
The final stage of the transaction is completion, where the transfer of the property is made official and when the seller hands over the keys to the new owners.
How long does conveyancing take in Wimborne?
Every transaction is different and while some may be as smooth sailing as can be, others may come across a few hurdles along the way. While we always aim to process your transaction as quickly as possible while maintaining a high-quality service, it’s not uncommon for external issues to present themselves along the way. If that happens to be the case with your transaction, we will make sure to let you know well in advance.
From our experience, the average transaction typically takes between 12 and 14 weeks to complete.
What searches are involved in conveyancing in Wimborne?
When purchasing a property in Wimborne, your chosen residential property solicitors will carry out various searches. These searches include:
- 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
Sometimes, additional checks are necessary, and should this be the case with your transaction, your case manager will let you know.
