Contrary to popular belief your property lawyer is not just “dealing with the paperwork”. The conveyancing process has become far more complicated in recent years as new regulations come into force and more searches are available. Various Acts of Parliament and changes in the law relating to mortgage fraud, the proceeds of crime and identity theft need to be taken into account and recent case law affects mortgages, alterations and extensions, etc.
Whether you are buying or selling you are faced with a difficult decision over who to use to do the conveyancing. Prices vary and there are now firms operating in remote parts of the country offering cheap internet based conveyancing. However we now carry out most of the work electronically and we also provide a personal service and we can discuss all aspects of the process to make sure that the transaction runs smoothly and as quickly as possible. The entire process can be tracked on the internet and this facility can be shared with estate agents to keep everyone informed.
A new feature of our service is on-line fact sheets and reference guides giving detailed information on all aspects of the process. We also have forms that can be downloaded and posted or emailed as you wish, but if you would prefer us to send documents in the post we will do so!
