Conveyancing is probably one of the most obvious times when you may need to work with a local solicitor. And, if you are buying or selling a property in Runcorn, the team at Forster Dean are here to assist.

We have a wide range of expertise and fully qualified conveyancing solicitors available right now to help you navigate the whole process from start to finish.

What is Conveyancing?

Whether you are a first-time buyer or a property expert, the legal side of dealing with any house or property purchase can be time-consuming and complex. Conveyancing, at its heart, is simply the legal transfer of documentation of a property from the old owner to the new one.

The job of the solicitor, whether you are buying a home in Runcorn or anywhere else, is to ensure this process happens as smoothly as possible. There are distinct processes that need to take place and your legal team is there to help control these right through to the exchange of contracts and the final completion.

Of course, moving house or buying one for the first time can be one of the most stressful experiences you are likely to go through in life. While you may be tempted to organise the legal side of things yourself, it can be a false economy, especially if you get it wrong.

There are a number of different aspects that your conveyancing solicitors in Runcorn will handle for you. These include:

  • Drafting up the contract and initial paperwork once the sale has been agreed.
  • Carrying out preliminary checks including finding out if there are issues with rights of way and boundary disputes.
  • Organising a survey of the property and carrying out various searches such as the potential for problems with planning or issues such as local flooding.
  • Negotiating the final terms of the draft contract, handling the mortgage, if there is one, and the exchange of contracts.
  • Collecting and sending the money for the sale and handling the registration of the property transfer.

The tasks that your conveyancing solicitor carries out will depend on whether they are acting for the buyer or the seller.
