Do I require a Conveyancer?
If you plan on buying, selling or remortgaging a home, you’ll need to go through the legal aspect of buying known as Conveyancing. It is possible to do the conveyancing yourself, but it’s very complicated and very time consuming (DIY Conveyancing). If you’re having a mortgage you’re chosen mortgage provider will usually require a Conveyancer on their panel of trusted Conveyancers.
That’s the reason the majority of homeowners instruct a Property Solicitor or a Licensed Conveyancer instead of doing it themselves. With our chosen Conveyancers the legal part of moving is quick and simple, plus it’s more affordable than you’d expect (average conveyancing fees).

What is a Licensed Conveyancer?
Licensed Conveyancers are the same as Property Solicitors, except they just specialise in conveyancing and they are regulated by the Council for Licensed Conveyancers (CLC) in England and Wales. Most Licensed Conveyancers to their work online via email and over the phone. They’re more popular than traditional Solicitors as they are much cheaper (most of the time).
Choosing a Conveyancer in Bristol
Some people prefer to choose a local solicitor and meet face to face. These days the majority of conveyancing is done through phone and email, rarely do people meet they’re conveyancer in person. Using a local solicitor can be expensive, it’s far less expensive to instruct a nationwide online conveyancing firm that acts for properties in your area. It’s completely up to you who you choose to instruct, you do not have to use an Estate Agents ‘recommended’ solicitor.
The national average timescale for conveyancing is between 9-10 weeks. Conveyancing for simple purchase transactions can take just 4-6 weeks but a more complicated transaction can take much much longer to complete. Some transactions have been known to take over a year to complete, why? More info visit our How long does conveyancing take?.
