Conveyancing process – selling a house

As soon as you have agreed to a sale:

  • Contact us to give us details of you and your property.
  • Get an instant, comprehensive conveyancing fee quote, which you can use to instruct us.
  • Tell your estate agent that our conveyancing solicitors are acting for you and give them our contact details.

We will then send you:

  • A conveyancing quotation.
  • Our terms and conditions and an instruction form to collect details of you, your buyer and the transaction.
  • We will need proof of your identity (under Money Laundering legislation) or you can give us the approval to do identity verification checks.

The next steps are then:

  • We will obtain the deeds to your property and the Land Registry copy entries we need to get started.
  • You will be asked to give essential information about your house by filling in a ‘Property Information Form’ and a ‘Fixture, Fittings and Contents Form’.
  • We will also need you to give us any documents you have, such as guarantees or planning consents.
  • We will send a draft contract to the buyer’s solicitors who must then carry out searches with the Local Authority and other agencies.
