What do Conveyancing Solicitors do?

Conveyancing solicitors carry out the legal work on a purchase or sale to transfer the legal ownership of a property to the new owner.  They check the legal title for any defects on a purchase and raise enquiries regarding this.  They will report anything to you and your mortgage lender.  They will check the legal title not only for themselves but also for the lender and advise them if the title is sufficient for the Lender’s security.  On a sale the Conveyancing Solicitors will receive enquiries from the buyer and raise these with you as the seller, you will get these enquiries as you know most about the property.  A good Conveyancing Solicitor will make your life easier either on a sale or on a purchase.

The benefit of a local solicitor

When thinking of property lawyers, people may think that a local Solicitor would be beneficial and that knowing the area would help.  Although this could be true, there may be more important factors in choosing a solicitor.

The conveyancing lawyer would not actually visit the property and deal only with the Legal Title.  So this would be possible from a remote location such as an online only solicitor or a solicitor you may have used in the past in a different area.

The Local high street solicitor is what everyone thinks of when they think of a solicitor, somebody you can go and meet in a nice office and maybe someone who has acted for your family for generations.

So when you think of Conveyancing Solicitors, you may think of the high street or surrounding areas and any Solicitors offices that you have seen or any that have been recommended.

The advantages of this is that you can go and have a chat face to face with your Conveyancing Solicitor.  You can pop any documents to them at the office.  And even try and pop in on the off chance that they are available.  There will be a number of different Conveyancing Solicitors and they will cater for your needs.

The Online/remote solicitor

As changes have been made around the world pre and post Covid, more and more work has been able to be done remotely and the work of Conveyancing Solicitors is no different.

With more and more conveyancing able to be done paperless, an online or remote solicitor could be the best way to go.  As they work remotely they would normally have a good up to date IT system which helps not only you but helps them keep on top of the file and makes everything run smoothly.  It may be more suitable for you to pick up documents when you need rather than having to make an appointment on the day.

You can receive your documents by email, print these off and post them back in your own time.  So when thinking of Conveyancing Solicitors it may be worth thinking of an online/remote solicitor rather than a traditional conveyancing solicitor and decide which is best for you.
