Complex conveyancing work may incur additional costs, but if this is likely to be the case, you will be informed by your solicitor.

How does the conveyancing process work in Worksop?
There are three main stages to be aware of when you buy or sell a home:
- Offer and acceptance
- Exchange of contracts
When an offer is accepted on a home, the buyer and seller enter into a contract which is not yet legally binding. Either party can pull out without receiving a penalty.
At this stage, the buyer should seek out as much information about the property with the assistance of their conveyancer. The information they seek could 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 the buyer needs a mortgage, they will likely apply for one at this stage.
Once the conveyancing searches have been carried out and the buyer is happy, contracts are then exchanged. The transaction will now be legally binding and if either party pulls out, they will receive a penalty.
Completion is when the transaction becomes official. A transfer deed will be submitted to HM Land Registry and the seller will have to vacate the property so the buyer can move in.
How long does conveyancing take in Worksop?
Under normal circumstances, conveyancing work tends to take around 12-14 weeks from the date an offer is accepted and conveyancing solicitors are instructed.
However, there are a number of factors which may affect the time it takes to complete a transaction and delays to the process can occur. If your transaction is likely to face delays, your solicitors will let you know what the best course of action is.
What searches are involved in conveyancing in Worksop?
Your conveyancer will carry out a number of checks when you are buying a home, ensuring that there are no issues present that need to be addressed. These are called conveyancing searches.
There are three main checks:
- 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
Depending on the type of property in question, as well as where it is situated, further checks might be needed. If this is the case, your conveyancing solicitor will let you know.
