Whats the role of a solicitor?
Exchange of contracts
Purchase monies are sent to the sellers solicitor. If you have funds
coming from a related sale, these will need to arrive first. Stamp Duty
Land Tax payment will be sent on your behalf unless you are exempt.
Finally, your solicitor will register you as the owner of the property
with the Land Registry.
Please note the above is not an exhaustive list. There are many
nuances to conveyancing. Consequently, various problems can arise and
delays can occur. We recommended choosing a reputable and locally based
solicitor. If you would like us to have some estimates sent you,
