What is conveyancing?
Conveyancing encompasses a lot of the paperwork and legal processes involved in moving to a new home or selling a new home. This includes:
- Identity checks
- Fittings and contents form
- Preparing a draft contract with the title deeds and other Land Registry documents as supporting documents
- Communicating with the buyer’s conveyancer and discussing any enquiries or changes that need to be made on the draft contract
- Formally exchanging the contracts between buyer and seller
- Transfer deed

This can depend on a number of factors such as how long the chain is and whether there are any complex matters to take into account. But generally, we would estimate the conveyancing process to take around 6 – 12 weeks to fully complete.
Typically, conveyancing can be split into three distinct stages including pre-contract, exchange of contracts and, the final stage, completion
The buyer puts in an offer for the property and, once accepted by the seller, the buyer’s conveyancer is informed. A survey on the property is then carried out and a mortgage application is made. This is confirmed by the conveyancer through a document detailing the fixed fee costs and terms, then the buyer’s conveyancer gets in touch with the seller’s conveyancer and gets a ‘contract pack.’ After the contract pack is checked over by the buyer’s conveyancer, any pre-contract queries are raised and the buyer sends their conveyancer a copy of the mortgage offer. This is now the buyer’s chance to ask their conveyancer any questions regarding the pre-contract. Once everyone is happy, the deposit is paid to the conveyancer and contacts are officially exchanged.
The conveyancer will then create a ‘draft transfer deed’ and completion information form, sending it to the seller’s conveyancer. One approved, these documents are transformed into a ‘final copy’ and both the seller and buyer sign it. The buyer’s conveyancer creates a completion statement and conducts pre-completion searches, then applies for to the mortgage lender. Once everything is approved, the buyer moves out of his / her home and the conveyancer sends the sale funds to the seller. The are sent to the buyer and the title deeds and transfer deeds are sent to the buyer’s conveyancer, along with proof that the seller has paid the remaining mortgage amount. The conveyancer sends along the stamp duty fee to HMRC and registers the buyer’s name at The Land Registry.
The conveyancing process for the seller is very similar, except any remaining money from the sale is sent to the seller’s bank account on the day of completion.
