FAQ's for Conveyancing in West Hampstead

How long does Conveyancing in West Hampstead take?

This is one of the most difficult questions for any Solicitor specialising in Conveyancing in West Hampstead to answer, as it often depends upon many factors.

These may include waiting for mortgage offers to be issued (either to yourself – or others in your chain), whether others in the chain have sold their property and the position of their own buyers etc. .   Whether there are any survey or structural problems can also delay matters.   As a general guide an average transaction may take 6-8 weeks to exchange contracts with completion following after a further 2-4 weeks.

However, it may happen more quickly or slowly depending upon the individual circumstances. Our team  will not delay your transaction, as it is in their own interests to complete your Conveyancing in West Hampstead soon as possible.

When should I instruct a Conveyancing Solicitor?

The sooner you get us instruct a lawyer, the less likelihood of getting yourself into difficulty. Ideally, at the point you are first considering a transaction, you should consult with the Conveyancing in West Hampstead team  and then again following conclusion of negotiations. The golden rule is never sign anything before you consult with your Conveyancer, even if you do not use Fridaysmove .

My friend told me that it is cheaper to just use a licensed Conveyancer, is this the case?

Usually not. Property solicitors now generally discount their fees in line with those of conveyancers as a result of the introduction of competition into the marketplace.

What happens after completion?

The post-completion process can take several weeks to finalise, including the reimbursement of any monies owed, and registration of title with the Land Registry. If there is a mortgage on the property then the deeds are sent to your lender where they are held until the mortgage has been paid, or the property is sold. If there is no mortgage involved, you will need to tell us whether you require the deeds to be sent to you.
