Conveyancing: transferring the ownership of property
There are five main stages of conveyancing for a buyer:
- Pre-contractual stage
- Exchange of contracts
- Between exchange and completion
- After completion
The legal administrative side will be covered by the conveyancer, this will include carrying the legal paperwork to either transfer a property into your ownership or from your ownership into the person you are selling it to. They will also arrange for the sale monies and other fees to be clearered and paid.
Making payments through your conveyancer
You will need to make payments to the seller during the conveyancing process. If you hire a solicitor or licensed conveyancer, they may ask you for the money in advance so payments can be made without delay.
The costs of conveyancing can vary considerably depending on the size of the property, its value and the complexity of the transaction.
Your agreement will be direct with the conveyancer, there will not be a legal agreement between yourself and iSurveyor.com, you deal with the experts direct.

If indeed you have a standard property without any unusual terms or clauses, then expect to pay in the region of £500 and £1500 for a purchase and sale (less for a single transaction). This cost will be divided into 2, what you pay the conveyancer (or solicitor) and what you pay in the way of disbursements (payments to third parties, paid on your behalf). An indication of costs would be:
£250 to £1000 for the Conveyancer’s basic fee to sell a property.
£250 to £1000 for the Conveyancer’s basic fee to buy a property.
£50 to £200 for the Conveyancer’s extra fees for leasehold.
£5-£15 Land Registry office report copies.
