Is it better to use a local solicitor for conveyancing in the East Midlands?

Typically, the biggest difference when using a local high street solicitor is how you are communicated with and the cost. A local solicitor may charge you by the hour, as that is their pricing structure for all the other types of legal work they are completing, whereas most online conveyancers are more competitively priced, offering other incentives such as a no move, no legal fee guarantee.

How does the conveyancing process work in the East Midlands?

The conveyancing process in the East Midlands and its counties will be no different to that of the rest of England and Wales. Once you have chosen a conveyancer and instructed them, they will begin the legal work of transferring the ownership of the property. This legal work includes arranging any searches required, raising enquiries on the property writing and ironing out the contract of sale, the transferring of monies, paying any Stamp Duty Land Tax and registering the title with the Land Registry.

What is the quickest time for conveyancing?

Unfortunately, this is a similar question to ‘how long is a piece of string?’, there is no precise answer. From our experience of transactions all across England and Wales we are able to tell that the average transaction time currently is 16-20 weeks from when a sale is agreed. Of course, this can only be a guide though as the time period all depends on the circumstances of your transaction, are you buying or selling? Is there a chain involved? How long is the current timing for local searches? These are all questions, and differences, which can affect the time to complete. Once you have accepted your quote, your conveyancer will be able to discuss timings with you to provide you with a realistic and achievable deadline. Although, please bear in mind, that this can change along the way, depending on if any issues or delays crop up.
