Conveyancing Solicitors vs Conveyancers
If you’re searching for a property lawyer to manage the legal process on your behalf, there’s only two options, have a Solicitors or a Licenced Conveyancers. Property Solicitors practice lots of different types of law, from conveyancing to Tax law. But Licenced Conveyancers strictly handle just property law and are unable to practice any other area of law. The legal work you’ll get from either is equal, conveyancing is normally a easy legal process. The key difference is the cost, Licenced Conveyancers the majority of the time are less expensive and easier to work with.
It is possible for a buyer or seller to handle their own legal work, but it’s very difficult and time consuming. We DO NOT recommend anyone to do their own conveyancing. If your transaction involves a mortgage, it’s likely that the mortgage lender will insist that a solicitor or conveyancer is used for the conveyancing work. With more and more firms and conveyancing solicitors advertising low price conveyancing service, making the conveyancing industry price competitive.

Property Searches for Wolsingham

Conveyancing property searches are checks made to the local authority (Wolsingham council) that can find additional information about the property or land you’re looking to buy. Property searches check different aspects that might negatively affect the properties value. Search results will check the quality of the ground, check for flooding risk, common drains, access rights and if planning permission may be approved for further property development. The searches must be completed and approved before the exchange contracts. If you plan on remortgaging, lenders will not ask for searches to be carried out.
