Conveyancing is the transfer of legal title in property.

Do i need conveyancing?

The simple answer is yes.

When you purchase or sell property you will need to instruct a conveyancer.

What about for a remortgage?

Yes again.

However, the majority of mortgage lenders will offer this service free as part of their remortgage package.


The conveyancing process for a purchase can take anything from 6-12 weeks and beyond, from instruction to completion.
For a remortgage it will be around 3-4 weeks.


The cost varies and is dependent on the purchase price of the property.
Our clients will benefit from preferential rates with conveyancers instructed through us.
