Conveyancing Solicitors vs Conveyancers
When you’re searching for a property lawyer to manage the legal process for you, you can choose one of two options, choose a Property Solicitors or a Licenced Conveyancers. Conveyancing Solicitors practice many aspects and types of law, from Property and Land Law to Personal Injury law. While Licenced Conveyancers only practice property law and don’t practice any other area of law. The service you’ll get from both is pretty much the same, conveyancing is normally a easy legal process. The main difference between the two is the price you pay, Licenced Conveyancers normally are more affordable and more reliable.
It’s possible for a buyer or seller to carry out their own conveyancing transaction, but it is very difficult and time consuming. Conveyancers don’t recommend people to do DIY conveyancing. If your conveyancing process involves a mortgage, the lender will insist that a property solicitor or licensed conveyancer is used for the conveyancing work. With more and more conveyancing firms and conveyancing solicitors advertising cheap legal services, this has made the online conveyancing industry price competitive.

Conveyancing Property Searches Crook
If you are buying a home in Crook, your chosen conveyancer likely will advise that you carry out property searches. Property searches are enquiries made to the local authority (Crook council) that might find additional information about a property or land you’re looking to buy. Property searches check multiple aspects that may negatively impact the houses value. For example, they’ll reveal the quality of the ground, check for flooding risk, drain access, rights of access and whether planning permission can be granted for further land development. The property searches must be completed and granted approval before you exchange contracts. Whenever you’re remortgaging, mortgage lender will not ask for property searches done.

Crook is a historic market town in County Durham, in the North East of England.
Located a couple of miles north of the River Wear, Crook lies about 9 miles (14.5 km) south-west of the historic city of Durham and 5 miles (8km) north-west of Bishop Auckland. The A690 road from Durham turns into the A689 leading up through Wolsingham and Stanhope into the scenic upper reaches of Weardale (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty). Located on the edge of Weardale, Crook is consequently sometimes referred to as the “Gateway to Weardale”.
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.
