Buying and selling your home can be exciting and nerve-wracking in equal measure. There has been a trend towards online conveyancers in recent years, and while this may save a small amount of money, the risks of doing so are not always fully understood. The conveyancing process is intended to protect the buyer, seller, and lender, and to make sure that their interests are protected throughout the process. Any mistakes made during this time can have serious implications, including for the rights of the new owner and the property’s value. As a London based property law Solicitor, AQ Archers regularly oversee the safe transaction of very high-value properties in the capital. This is because we have built a trusted reputation for making sure that every aspect of the conveyancing process is undertaken with care and in a timely manner.
We focus on quality, not the quantity of conveyancing transactions, and will spot any anomalies and recommend approaches which provide protection to our clients. In doing so, our team may recommend undertaking additional checks and searches if they find a problem.
How long will the conveyancing process take?
This depends on the extent of the chain involved in the buying and selling process. It is possible for some short-chain or chain-free transactions to reach completion within six weeks, however, it is best to plan for 10 – 12 weeks. Remember also that any conveyancer promising to meet a short deadline to complete your matter may not be as thorough as they should be. As such, the AQ Archers property team will always endeavour to balance speed with the quality of process.
Why should I use AQ Archers to manage my property purchase or sale?
When it comes to residential property sales and purchase, our focus is on client care. We will do everything possible to make sure you are updated on progress and to protect your immediate and long-term interests. Any potential pitfalls or problems will be actively sought out and we will recommend more in-depth searches or checks if we believe they are necessary. Furthermore, your conveyancing Solicitor will be available to speak to you when you need an update, or you have questions.
Most conveyancing delays occur due to waiting for replies to specific enquiries or searches. Our processes and procedures mean that no time will be lost in the purchase or sale process. Where delays are being caused by other parties, we will actively chase for progress to be made.
