Conveyancing refers to the legal and administrative work involved in transferring ownership of a property or piece of land. For investors, this process can be even more complicated. On top of transferring legal ownership, an investor must navigate the legalities wrapped up in the buy-to-let section of the law:

  • A conveyancing solicitor will ensure that you have the legal right to sell your property and that there are no debts attached to it.

  • At Sweeney Miller, your conveyancing solicitor will carry out checks with the Local Authority to make sure any new alterations or extensions to the property or site have been approved or awarded planning permission.

  • If you are investing in a property development project, it is the responsibility of your conveyancing solicitor to ensure that the plans have been ascertained by relevant authorities.

  • You will also need to pay Stamp Duty – a tax payable to the government based on the price of the property – which will be determined by your conveyancing solicitor at Sweeney Miller.

  • Buying, letting, or selling leasehold properties such as apartments is generally more complex. In this case, your conveyancer will be directly involved in determining maintenance costs, ground rents, and the service charges to be used going forward.

  • Where there is a tenant in situ, your solicitor will check that the regulatory requirements for letting of properties have been complied with
