Hiring a Conveyancing Solicitor

Finding a solicitor in Southampton to assist you in property related legal matters is now easier than ever. Our database holds the contact details of more than 35 different local firms, enabling clients to quickly and easily gather quotes and compare prices and services of a number of solicitors. It is wise to obtain at least three quotes prior to instructing a firm to work on your behalf to ensure that the rates offered are competitive and affordable.

What is conveyancing?

Conveyancing is the legal process of transferring ownership of a property from one person to another. In basic terms, conveyancing is the legal term for buying and selling properties, both private and commercial.

Am I protected when I hire a solicitor in case they make errors?

All Southampton solicitors are authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), and this means that each firm must abide by basic standards of service. This provides clients with the confidence of knowing that their chosen firm will have to maintain acceptable standards in order to conduct business.

It is also wise to recognise that the guidelines laid out by the SRA are the minimum standards that a solicitor should observe and as such, most firms excel to stand out from others.

Each firm will also maintain insurance to ensure that any serious errors are covered and that if necessary, clients can reclaim any losses.

How quickly will my house purchase be completed?

The time that it takes for your Southampton solicitor to reach a completion on your house purchase will vary greatly dependent upon a number of factors. There is no specific duration of time needed for purchases, and so clients are wise to manage their expectations accordingly. Your solicitor will be able to provide you with expected timescales and help you to understand the ways in which it may be possible for you to influence the time it will take to complete on the sale.

Some of the main factors that can influence the time it takes to complete on a house purchase include:

  • The enthusiasm or intentional delays caused by the buyer/seller
  • The effectiveness and efficiency of the other party's legal firm
  • Delays in obtaining funds from mortgage lenders
  • Accessing personal finances such as savings and investments to fund the purchase
  • Delays from local authorities completing reports and the results of which requiring additional attention
  • Survey completion times and results that may call for additional investigation
  • Discrepancies with regards to land ownership and boundary lines
  • External uninfluenced factors such as postal delays or bank holidays.
  • Negotiations on price and inclusions based on the findings of surveys and local authority reports.

Can I pay a set fee for legal fees when purchasing a new home?

Some legal firms in Southampton will offer set fees for certain conveyancing and property related cases. This means that clients are given a fixed rate that covers all of the work that will be needed to complete a purchase.

Many clients prefer this method of quoting and paying as it is easy to manage and ensures that there are no unwelcome surprises with regards to cost at a later stage.

If your chosen firm is unable to offer this payment scheme, discuss your situation and the firm will explain how they can best accommodate your needs with regards to their fees. They may, for example, be able to offer you a no sale no fee service. This option means that should the house purchase fall through, you would not be charged a fee.
