Residential Conveyancing

We have been estab­lished in Wilm­slow, Cheshire for almost one hun­dred years and over the decades we have assist­ed many indi­vid­u­als and busi­ness­es, gain­ing a detailed under­stand­ing of the areas in which we work. 

If you want help with the trans­fer of a legal title of a prop­er­ty from one per­son to anoth­er, our res­i­den­tial solic­i­tors are here for you. Our con­veyancers are avail­able to sup­port the two major land­marks, exchang­ing con­tracts and the com­ple­tion of the res­i­den­tial con­veyanc­ing, and will work hard to ensure that each pro­ce­dure is done cor­rect­ly and to the high­est standards. 

What is residential conveyancing?

Residential Conveyancing is a term used to describe the legal process of purchasing or selling a property, whereby the contractual title of a property is transferred from one owner to another. Essentially, the buy­er of a prop­er­ty must ensure that they obtain a good and mar­ketable ​‘title’ to the land; i.e., that the sell­er is the own­er, has the right to sell the prop­er­ty, and there is noth­ing which would impede a mort­gage or re-sale.

We know how important it is to have the right support during the residential conveyancing process, which is why our conveyancing lawyers are here to help and offer support at every step of the process, including negotiating, reviewing or drafting lease agreements.

How long does a residential conveyancing purchase take?

The length of purchasing varies for each case, but we estimate it takes between eight to sixteen weeks. During this time, our residential conveyancers work hard to ensure the swiftest possible process without compromising on the quality of their work.
