Do I need a Conveyancer?
When buying, selling or remortgaging a property, you’ll need to go through the legal aspect of buying referred to as Conveyancing. It is possible to do you own conveyancing, but it’s very complicated and time consuming (DIY Conveyancing). If you’re having a mortgage you’re lender will usually require a Conveyancer known to them.
This is why the majority of homeowners instruct a Property Solicitor or a Licensed Conveyancer instead of doing it themselves. With our chosen Conveyancers the legal processes is fast and simple, plus it’s more affordable than you’d think (average conveyancing fees).
What is a Licensed Conveyancer?
Licensed Conveyancers are like Solicitors, but they just specialise in buying-selling property and are regulated by the Council for Licensed Conveyancers (CLC) in England and Wales. Most Licensed Conveyancers handle the process online via email and through phone calls. They’re more popular than traditional Solicitors because they are much cheaper (most of the time).
