The Benefits of Instructing a Conveyancing Solicitor
If you are buying or selling a property in Scotland, there are many legal steps to negotiate and multiple parties involved. The conveyancing process covers all stages from initial negotiations through to the transfer of ownership from the seller to the buyer.
The conveyancing process includes:
- Negotiating the contract of sale – this will include issues such as date of entry, what items will be included with the sale and when payment will be made.
- Carrying out checks on the title deeds and searches of the Land Register – this is to make sure that the person selling the property has the right to do so.
- Making sure that the buyer has funds available – this will often be by way of a mortgage and arrangements must be in place to transfer this to the seller’s solicitor.
- Conclusion of missives – this involves the exchanging of letters between the buyer and seller's solicitors which will form the contract of sale.
This process can be complicated, and there must be regular contact between the negotiating parties throughout. Our solicitors will work tirelessly to ensure that everything goes as smoothly as possible and that negotiations and the conveyancing process generally are completed as quickly as possible.
