Do I Need Conveyancing Direct?
Our job is to complete the legal transfer of the property from the seller to the purchaser. This process of conveyancing in some cases is still misunderstood as you cannot complete it without the services of a solicitor.
Phone us on 0141 420 5041 or 5042 or 5043 we are open Monday to Friday 8am to 6pm.
You can also request a quote simple online via our instant quote form and one of our advisors will respond to you via telephone to discuss your specific requirements. If you wish to go ahead we shall send you a written terms of business agreement detailing what we shall do for the fee quoted and an estimate of the other costs in concise English.
Are There Extra Costs I Will Incur?
Whenever you sell property in Scotland you will have extra costs over and above the solicitor's fee. These will include:
VAT on our fee
the cost of a search of the local authority
water board records
possibly a Coal Authority report
a search of the government property and personal records
the cost of recording a discharge of a mortgage in the public records
Unfortunately there can sometimes be added costs for special reports and documents which are rarely foreseeable at the start of a transaction. Thankfully these cases are the exception to the rule. Conveyancing Direct will let you know these costs.
When Should I Instruct Conveyancing Direct?
Preferably as soon as you put your property up for sale - this will allow us to obtain a copy of your title deeds and be ready to deal with an offer as soon as it is received.
Are there any special documents I should look out for Conveyancing Direct?
If you or a previous owner of your home have had any work done to it, eg. an extension, alteration, timber or damp treatments, double glazing etc. look out the local authority consents, plans or guarantees and give them to us as soon as possible so that they can be checked.
What happens next?
Once you have had viewers and one or more want to make an offer for it tell them the name of your selling agent if you are using them to market your home or (if you are marketing it yourself) the name and address of Conveyancing Direct. The interested parties should have their solicitors intimate interest to your selling agent or Conveyancing Direct. If you receive more than on note of interest it is usually wise to set a closing date for offers to be received. Seek advice about this from your selling agent or Conveyancing Direct.
