Whether you buy or sell a property you will need to appoint a solicitor to handle the legal aspects of the transaction. At Concept Homes we can help you to do that simply and easily.
We recognise that despite everyone’s best efforts, moving house can be a stressful experience. Good communication is essential to minimise stress and at Concept Homes we have an excellent working relationship with a small panel of specialist conveyancing firms who share a common goal to exchange contracts quickly and to help people move.
Our Property conveyancing service has been designed to enable our solicitors to provide you with a service of the highest standard at a very competitive price. We want your transaction to proceed smoothly and we will do everything possible to assist you in this respect.
Most of our conveyancing is undertaken via the telephone, post and email by the Conveyancer appointed to manage your transaction. This makes the conveyancing process quicker and often more efficient and saves you the expense and inconvenience of needing to see your Conveyancer in person.
We can act on both sides of the sale, making us a one stop shop for all your conveyancing needs. Our service is a specialist property conveyancing service that can help make the moving process easier by helping speed up the sale. A faster sale is a more secure sale, and when we control the sale and the conveyancing you have a better chance of exchanging quicker.
- No move, no fee
- Fixed fee guarantee
- No hidden extras – the price quoted at the outset, is the price we charge at the end
What Is Conveyancing?
A property buyer must ensure that he or she has a good ‘title’ to the land: that the seller is the owner has the right to sell the property, and that there is no factor that would prevent a mortgage or re-sale.
Conveyancing is the transfer of the legal title of property from one person to another or the granting of a mortgage. A solicitor usually involves two major landmarks: the exchange of contracts, where equitable title passes, and completion where legal title passes.
Your solicitor will ensure that you have good title and will arrange the contracts on your behalf.
How Do I choose a solicitor?
Moving house can be stressful enough without wondering if you have chosen the right legal team to represent you. You need to be considerate when choosing a conveyancing solicitor to act on your behalf, whether that is online or not. A company with many clients may be able to offer lower prices, but they might not be able to offer the personal service you require and in the time you require it.
Questions to Ask when choosing your solicitor
Consider what could happen in a worst-case scenario if you discover major legal defects after completion. You need to ensure that you are able to claim from an effective insurance policy or have recourse of action to a regulatory body.
Ensure that the conveyancing solicitor you choose is regulated and insured.
Do They Have The Experience To Undertake My Transaction?
Many solicitors are not conveyancing specialists and may carry out other work. This means that they could often be away from the office (for example when in court) and will not be available to take your call should you need to discuss anything with them.
Is It Important Where They Are Based?
Are you happy to communicate with your solicitor by telephone, email or letter or would you prefer to meet them face-to-face? It is important to consider this, especially when choosing online.
You should always keep in mind that there are some conveyancing companies that won’t be able to provide you with the service you want at the price you expect. You may be better off having a good look around to find solicitors that will provide the service that you need and deserve. Remember, if you want a quick and personal service then you may need to do plenty of research before committing.
Are You Getting The Most Effective Conveyancing In The Marketplace?
Many solicitors promise much, including:
- Lowest price guaranteed
- No move, no fee
- Competitive legal fees with no hidden charges
- No need to visit their offices
- A specialist, friendly and efficient service
There are no set rules to choosing the right service, but what you can do is make sure you ask the right questions (such as those above) and that you’re confident you will receive the service required for the cost quoted.
The Solicitors Regulatory Authority (SRA) regulates solicitors, while the Council for Licensed Conveyancers (CLC) regulates licensed Conveyancers. Both the SRA and the CLC insist that their members carry effective indemnity insurance.
