Explaining what a property lawyer does

What does a property lawyer do?. AgentQuote.co.uk explains.

What is a "property lawyer"?

A property lawyer is a solicitor who specialises in the act of conveyancing. That is, to transfer the title of ownership of a property from one party to another party.

There are other people, called licensed conveyancers that can also do this work. There are arguments for and against using licensed conveyancers. Many prefer to use a fully qualified lawyer to do this work.

One of the main things to be aware of is that your mortgage company may only be willing to deal with a fully qualified lawyer in respect of your porperty purchase.

At the end of the day, moving house is a stressful enough experience without something going wrong with the legal aspects of the transaction.

Customer Reviews & Comments

The Legal House

Communication was excellent at all times and everything went without a hitch. Any delays were caused by people further down the chain, which our solicitor had no control over.. Client, MK45. Rating: rating: 5 stars December, 2009

Chadwick Lawrence LLP

Communication were good being clear and concise. Everything was handled well and the transaction went smoothly. I would also like to add that the status update by email wa very effective but I did not receive the access log in details to the internet facility in the initial letter as promised. Overall though I found your service very good value and would not hesitate to recommend you.. Client, WD3 8. Rating: rating: 5 stars December, 2012
