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, please complete the form.
