Why do I need a conveyancing solicitor when selling my home?

A conveyancing solicitor ensures that all legal aspects of the property sale are handled correctly, including contracts, transfer of ownership, and any necessary legal documentation.

How do I choose the right conveyancing solicitor in Devon and Cornwall for selling my home?

Look for solicitors/conveyancers with experience in property law and conveyancing, preferably ones based in Devon and Cornwall who are familiar with local regulations and processes.

What documents do I need to provide to my conveyancing solicitor when selling my home?

Typically, you’ll need to provide documents such as proof of identity, property title deeds (if the property is unregistered), any planning permissions or building regulation certificates, and details of any ongoing disputes or issues related to the property.

How long does the conveyancing process take when selling a home in Devon and Cornwall?

The conveyancing process can vary depending on factors such as the complexity of the sale, the efficiency of all parties involved, and any legal or financial issues that may arise. On average, it can take between 8 to 12 weeks from accepting an offer to completing the sale.

What are the costs associated with selling a property with a conveyancing solicitor in Devon?

Conveyancing fees typically include legal fees, search fees, Land Registry fees, and any additional costs such as VAT. Please take advantage of our online calculation to obtain an estimate of fees and disbursements.

Do I need to be present for the conveyancing process when selling my home?

While you don't necessarily need to be present for every step of the conveyancing process, your conveyancing solicitor will require your input and signature on certain documents. However, they will handle the majority of the legal work on your behalf.

What happens if there are issues discovered during the conveyancing process?

If any issues arise during the conveyancing process, such as property defects or legal disputes, your conveyancer will advise you on the best course of action. This may involve negotiating with the buyer's solicitor or seeking legal resolution.

Can I continue living in my home while it's being sold?

Yes, you can continue living in your home during the selling process. However, you'll need to be prepared for viewings and inspections.

What happens on completion day when selling my home?

Completion day is when the sale is finalised, and ownership of the property is transferred to the buyer. Your conveyancer will handle the exchange of contracts, transfer of funds, redemption of your mortgage (if you have one) and completion of all necessary legal paperwork.

How can I prepare my home for sale to ensure a smooth conveyancing process?

To prepare your home for sale, consider decluttering and depersonalising the space, making any necessary repairs or improvements, and ensuring all relevant documentation and paperwork are readily available for your conveyancing solicitor. If the boiler has not been serviced within the last 12 months it would be worth arranging this as although it is not a legal requirement, if it often requested by the buyer’s conveyancer. Additionally, cooperating promptly with any requests from potential buyers or their conveyancers can help facilitate a smoother process.
