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.

"Extremely professional and friendly service"

From my first call to arrange a viewing to collecting my keys, I received a first class, extremely professional and friendly service from the team at Edwards.

"We wanted accurate valuation advice"

From start to finish we were very impressed with the level of service we received from the team. We chose Edwards as we wanted accurate valuation advice from an agent with local knowledge. We got this from Alex and then excellent ongoing support right up to completion from the rest of the team.
