 Conveyancers

Licensed Conveyancers will do similar tasks to Solicitors. They offer skills in residential as well as commercial property. These skills include the sale, purchase and remortgage of freehold and leasehold houses or flats, the creation of new leases and tenancies, and the transfer of interests in domestic property. Additionally, some conveyancers act for a large number of mortgage lenders and can assist with mortgage advice.

You will typically find two types of conveyancing companies. The first type operate a national service where all correspondence with the customer occurs by telephone, post or over the internet (or a combination of all three). As they have a national coverage, they often deal with a larger number of customers. The second type is a more local business that may specialise in knowing the local area and may discuss your requirements and their services face-to-face. This is more of a personal and local service. Many companies now offer a facility on their web site to track the progress of your property.

You may find that fees vary greatly depending on which type of company you use. Conveyancing costs are often very competitive, therefore it is worth shopping around. It is important to look at the services they offer - if you choose the cheapest, you may not get value for money. It is essential to get three quotes to compare costs and make sure you are comfortable with the conveyancer. Try HouseWeb's free Service Centre to find three competitive quotes in your area.

Often, estate agents, mortgage brokers and building societies have their own conveyancers and may parcel them into the package they offer. Note that Conveyancers can also work on behalf of the seller.
