What is conveyancing?

Conveyancing is required when buying and selling a property, as it is the legal process of transferring property to or from a new owner. Therefore if you are buying or selling a residential property you will need a conveyance.

How long does conveyancing take?

Accordingly to a recent article published by Rightmove conveyancing in 2022 is taking 150 days. This is from sold subject to contract to moving home. That is 66 days longer than the popular 8 to 12 weeks coin in 2019 but still quoted by most solicitors today.

However, our conveyancing median in 2022 is 126 days from the day you instruct us to the day you move home. As a result, by instructing Attwell you could move home faster.

Your North London conveyancing solicitors

All of our conveyancers are highly trained and supported by our property solicitors. This is one of the benefits of Attwells being a niche property law firm. In addition, we use client feedback to continuously improve our conveyancing service.

Attwells currently have three offices. Firstly, our head office, which is based on Princes Street, Ipswich, ideally located close to a number of local estate agents. Then we have our second office on North Hill in Colchester, which allows us to provide conveyancing across Essex. Finally, we also have an office in St John’s Wood, North London.

Are you buying with a partner?

If you are buying with a partner you may wish to consider completing a Declaration of Ownership. A Declaration of Ownership is a legal document that outlines the percentage of ownership for each person. This is particularly important if one person puts more money towards the home.

For example, Ms. Jones sold her apartment. She used the funds to purchase a house with Mr. Smith, but Mr. Smith did not have a property to sell or equal funds to contribute, so Ms. Jones would own a big percentage. However, unless this is documented legally by property solicitors, upon selling the house they purchased together, Mr. Smith would be entitled to half.
