Once you’ve found the right home and started making plans for a mortgage, you’ll need to get a conveyancer to help process the legal side of things.

How to choose a solicitor

It’s hardly the most exciting part of buying a house, but choosing a solicitor or conveyancer is a really important decision. A number of solicitors in Oswestry are qualified to do conveyancing that specialise in property transactions.

Conveyancing fees range depending on the cost of the property and whether you’re just buying, or selling one home and buying another.

The cost will also depend on how complex the property transaction is. For example, if the property is a leasehold, there’s more legal work to do.

Some solicitors will charge a flat fee, while others will charge a percentage of the property’s value. Always check exactly what the fee covers – some will charge extra if any unforeseen issues arise. Get a few different quotes before choosing who to use.
