What if I am also buying?

We’ll ideally carry out the conveyancing for both your property purchase and your sale, but we may advise that choosing two solicitors with different fields of expertise could be more advantageous for your situation. We’ll always discuss the options with you and agree the best solution to suit your priorities. You can find out more about our conveyancing for buyers here.

How does conveyancing for sellers work?

With Spencer Lockwood Conveyancing behind your sale, all of the legal and administrative tasks will be efficiently and effectively dealt with so you don’t have to worry. We’ll keep you informed from the word go. Here’s how we work to make your life easier:

  1. We’ll talk through all of your priorities and provide you with a competitive quote.
  2. Once you’ve accepted our quote, one of our conveyancing lawyers will look over your case. They’ll send you all of the necessary paperwork straight away and let you know what information you need to provide.
  3. When you’ve returned the paperwork signed and completed with certified copies of your ID, along with proof of address, and any other documentation (such as planning permissions, installation certificates, covenant consents etc.), your lawyer will draft the initial sale contract and send it to the buyer.
  4. We will keep you informed of any queries raised by the buyer and respond appropriately. We’ll keep you in the loop as much or as little as you would like. Either way, we guarantee we’ll progress things as smoothly as possible.
  5. Once queries have been resolved, and all information required has been confirmed, your terms will be agreed and we’ll set the date for completion.
  6. Then it’s simply a case of both sides exchanging and signing contracts (if a buyer pulls out at this point, they usually lose their deposit).
  7. On the day of completion funds are exchanged. Legal completion takes place once the sale money from the buyer has been received into your solicitor’s account. Any payments to banks or agents are then arranged by us, and you’ll be sent the balance, usually by bank transfer.

Our sale fees start from £400 plus VAT, with typical disbursements for a standard transaction being around £100. Typical disbursements can include obtaining office copies from the land registry (£6-£12), bank transfer fees (£15 each) and, in the case of a leasehold sale, obtaining a management pack from the freeholder. The cost of this management pack is unknown as it is set by the individual freeholder or management company.
