We are purchasing a modern property. Is it necessary that conveyancing searches are performed?
These searches are queries raised by your conveyancing solicitor with a particular authority, for example a chancel search, and only deal with the legal aspects of the purchase.
For a fast completion on the purchase of a £536,000 property, what should we ensure to accelerate our transaction?
Essential to a fast completion is to employing a communicative conveyancer. There are, however, a number of tasks you can do. These include:
- encouraging your conveyancer to carry out searches promptly
- answering any queries raised by the conveyancer as soon as possible
- ordering a property survey early in the transaction

Which specific property conveyancing searches will my conveyancing solicitor in Edwinstowe order when instructed on a Edwinstowe house?
The routine conveyancing procedure is to obtain Local Authority Search, Drainage Search, Environmental and Gypsum as well as any less common searches, which may include a Subsidence report.
Should I list my property with more than one estate agent?
The choice is entirely up to you and your specific circumstances. Going with a sole agent is probably the cheapest option (although the reach to buyers is dependent on how many clients are on their books), while multiple agents will be more expensive (but will reach a broader client base).
If you’re looking for a quick sale or the market is rather sluggish, it makes sense to put your property on with a number of agents. If the market is buoyant, it makes more sense to place the property with a sole agent.
Whichever you choose, you should always check the terms and conditions so that you know what service you’re getting for your money and how much it will cost you once the home is sold. You should also understand if there are penalties should you decide to place the property with more or fewer agents later on during the agreement period.
For what reason does the sale conveyancing process take weeks to complete?
The legal work needed to sell or purchase a home will sometimes be obstructed. We appreciate how disruptive they may be and seek to diminish the impact of these delays, where possible,. There are numerous reasons for delay, such as difficulties with mortgage finance.
Do I need a solicitor?
The quick and easy answer is that you don’t. There is no legal imperative for you to employ a solicitor to handle the conveyancing when dealing with property. However, it would be rather unwise for you to carry out the work yourself because you probably won’t have the skills, knowledge and experience to perform many of the complex tasks, and you won’t possess the indemnity insurance that all solicitors are obliged to carry to protect clients in the event that something goes wrong.
You need to appoint a solicitor who is experienced, proactive and focused so that you have the best chance of completing your transaction as early as possible. You should also look for such a solicitor who also offers ‘No Completion, No Fee’ protection so that you will only be invoiced for the fees once your transaction has completed successfully.
