What do you need to know about conveyancing for purchase?
Conveyancing covers the preparation of legal documents required for the purchasing of a property. If you have been working with a buying or estate agent it is likely that they will be able to provide these services, though in the case of estate agents they may earn a commission by recommending a specialist to you, so do not be too quick to trust their costs. The average cost of hiring a conveyancer will depend on the nature of your property as well as your location in the UK. An average house conveyancing may cost around £850, with additional fees for bank transfers, disbursements, searches and so on adding around £450.
Remember to check over the qualifications of your conveyancer: they will need to be a fully licensed as a conveyancer or solicitor to legally do their job. Also take the time to look over reviews from their previous clientele to help you decide if they are right for you. This will be someone you will be conversing with frequently, so you will want to be comfortable with them.
