Do I need a Conveyancer?
If you plan on buying, selling or remortgaging a house, then you’ll need to go through the legal process known as Conveyancing. You could do the conveyancing yourself, but it’s very complicated and very time consuming (DIY Conveyancing). If you require a mortgage you’re lender usually require a Conveyancer on their panel of trusted Conveyancers.
That’s the reason the majority of property buyer and sellers instruct a Property Solicitor or a Licensed Conveyancer to handle the legal work. With our selected group of Conveyancers the legal part of moving is made quick and easy, plus it’s cheaper than you’d think (average conveyancing fees).
What is a Licensed Conveyancer?
Licensed Conveyancers are like Property Solicitors, but they only specialise in conveyancing and are regulated by the Council for Licensed Conveyancers (CLC) in England and Wales. Most Licensed Conveyancers act online via email and over the phone. They’re more popular than traditional Property Solicitors because they are far less expensive (in most cases).
