How our conveyancers help in 3 easy steps
We just need to know a bit about the property you’re selling or buying, or both.
Our conveyancers are top notch. Choose your favourite and they’ll get started. We call this ‘instruction’.
We’ll handle all the details. All you need to do is choose what colour you want to paint the walls.
faster than that one you found on Google.
No snail mail. No boring paperwork.
Honest pricing, visible Trustpilot scores and meaningful updates.
No need to hand over all your personal details (you’ve got better things to do).
We know conveyancing can seem pretty complicated.
(For starters, what even is a conveyancer?*)
So we’ve listed the questions we hear all the time. If there’s still more you need to know, why not drop our friendly team a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
*noun – a solicitor that specialises in property sales.
If you’re buying a home, they’ll do things like run the local searches, check the property’s boundaries, get the contract ready to sign, and negotiate the key dates. The last step is transferring the all-important ownership to you.
If you’re selling a home, they’ll prepare the legal contracts and work with your buyer’s solicitor. They’ll handle important documents like title deeds and transferring them to your buyer, and identify and certificates you might need (gas, boiler, electric etc).
They’ll also sort settling your mortgage, paying your estate agent’s fees and transferring any remaining money over to you.
First, ask yourself “Am I an expert in the intricacies of property law?”
Answered “No”? Then you should go with a professional. You’ll sleep better at night.
That’s because going it alone has a lot of risks because conveyancing is such a complicated legal area. It also takes a huge amount of time and effort to juggle the whole process. That’s time better spent picking out furniture for your dream home.
If you get anything wrong, it can also cost you a lot of money or even cause a purchase to fall through (and cost you a lot of money). Conveyancers will have something called negligence insurance.
Think of that as a safety net so you won’t be held personally liable for any mistakes you might make in the conveyancing process (again, potentially costing you a lot of money).
So you might be thinking you’re saving a pretty penny with a DIY approach, but you might be in for a rude awakening should things go wrong.
Both provide advice on the legal side of buying and selling a property. The main difference is that conveyancers are specialist property lawyers, focusing on buying and selling residential properties.
Solicitors are qualified lawyers, but they offer a range of expertise and legal services beyond just property. So it could be necessary to check they know their stuff if property isn’t their specialist area.
Luckily, with the Yourkeys panel, you can rest assured that you’ll get expert service and advice, whether you choose a conveyancer or a solicitor. Nice.
This depends on how complex your purchase or sale is or if any extra legal work is needed. Generally, it can cost up to £2,000 for conveyancing.
But don’t just look at the price quoted when making a decision, as cheap is not always going to be good.
This can depend on the complexity of your purchase or sale – such as if anything crops up in searches, or there are any delays in getting surveys completed.
On average, conveyancing will take between 8 to 12 weeks. The good news is our conveyancers are slicker than your average, and can get you in your new home 26 days faster than the norm.
