Conveyancing

Conveyancing for buyers

An essential step in ensuring that buying a new home goes through without problems is the appointment of an experienced, proactive conveyancing solicitor. Representing your legal interests throughout the process, your solicitor will:
  • Complete all ID documentation and instruction forms
  • Review seller’s contracts and confirm their legal title
  • Raise enquiries about the property’s use and history
  • Order searches from local authorities, Environment Agency etc
  • Confirm mortgage arrangements and represent lender’s interests
  • Agree terms of contract and set completion date
  • Exchange contracts and complete
  • Finalise Stamp Duty payment, Land Registry formalities and transfer of title deeds
Here at Edwards, we work regularly with a number of local conveyancing solicitors and would be happy to arrange a selection of no obligation quotes so that you have some comparable evidence to review before making your final choice.
