Conveyancing

Conveyancing for Home Buyers

'Conveyancing' is the word used to describe the legal and administrative work carried out when buying or selling a property. The conveyancing process starts when the buyer accepts an offer from the seller, and concludes when the new owner is registered at the Land Registry.

When acting for a buyer, a solicitor will carry out comprehensive due diligence into the property you intend to buy and report back to you accordingly.  Our solicitors will review and negotiate contracts on your behalf, advise on your mortgage offer, carry out necessary searches, exchange and complete contracts and carry out all post completion formalities.

Remortgage

Conveyancing for a Remortgage

The first step when acting for a client on a remortgage is to obtain a redemption statement from your lender.  Your solicitor will then await the mortgage offer, carry out searches (or advise on alternatives such as indemnity insurance) and review your mortgage offer.  Once you have signed  the mortgage deed the solicitor will redeem the existing mortgage, forward any residual funds to you and carry out the completion formalities.

Transfer of Equity

Transfer of Equity

If someone is added to or removed from the title deeds of a property, this is known as a transfer of equity.  This is a relatively straightforward legal procedure, although you will need permission from your lender if there is a mortgage on the property.  Homeward Legal can take care of the whole process for a low fixed fee.

Lease Extension

Lease Extension

As leaseholder you may have the right to extend the lease of your flat.  Our solicitors will assess your eligibility  and advise accordingly.  We would then arrange for a formal valuation of the premium estimated premium required to extend the lease, serve a Section 42 notice on your freeholder, negotiate on your behalf and complete the conveyancing of the new lease.

We usually negotiate a premium without the need to escalate the matter to the LVT, but in the unlikely event that this is necessary our solicitors will be with you ever step of the way.
