Frequently Asked Questions about Conveyancing Solicitors

Conveyancing is the name given to the legal and administrative work entailed in the transfer of ownership of a property or land. The sale or purchase of a home is among the largest financial transactions you are ever likely to make and so it is important that you have a legal expert on hand to support you during this process.


As experts in residential property matters, we use all of our experience to ensure that we support you every step of the way. For more information on the process, we have prepared a helpful guide, which you can download here.

The average time between instructing a solicitor and moving in is around 10-12 weeks however, timescales differ from transaction to transaction. Often these are dictated by external forces such as delays with searches, obtaining a mortgage, delay in information or documents being provided by the other party’s solicitor, or any complications that may arise within the chain.


What we can assure you, however, is that regardless of any issues or complications, our team will strive to work as efficiently and effectively as possible to provide a smooth process from start to finish.

When engaging a conveyancer, there are several costs involved, including legal fees, disbursements (such as searches), stamp duty land tax (SDLT), Land Registry fees, and more. The total cost will depend on factors like property value and transaction complexity.

We strive to be as transparent as possible and do not believe in hidden costs. You can read the full guide to our costs here or speak to a member of the team on 0345 900 5401 for our Newcastle office or 0191 568 2050 for Sunderland.

Technically, no, you are within your rights to take the ‘DIY Conveyancing route’ but this means the responsibility for carrying out all of the legal, and often complex, duties involved with a house sale or purchase lies with you. If a mortgage lender is involved in the transaction, a solicitor will usually need to be employed.


Our conveyancing team has years of experience and knowledge handling property purchases and sales from simple ‘no chain’ transactions to much more complicated matters involving multiple parties and non-standard properties, so you know if you instruct us, you’ll be in safe hands. Buying and selling property is stressful enough without the worry of carrying out your own legal work, let us handle that, and you can get on with preparing for your dream home!

As either a buyer or seller in a property transaction, you have certain responsibilities. These include:

  • Promptly responding to requests for documentation or information from your solicitor or other parties involved in the transaction.

Disputes can sometimes emerge during the conveyancing process, such as boundary disputes or planning permission problems. In such cases, an experienced solicitor becomes your ally, providing legal advice and guidance to protect your interests and help resolve these issues effectively.
