Buying a property is the largest single investment you will make in your lifetime and comes with many challenges. At John Fowlers Solicitors, our conveyancing solicitors can help – ensuring the process is as seamless as possible.

What is conveyancing? In simple terms, conveyancing is the process of preparing all the required documents and taking the appropriate precautions to successfully manage the legal transfer of property from the seller to the buyer.

Your John Fowlers Conveyancing Solicitors Colchester will:

  • Write to your seller’s solicitor to request a copy of the draft contract and property details
  • Analyse the draft contract and other documentation, raising any queries with the vendor’s solicitor
  • Answer any questions you have about the legalities of your property purchase
  • Complete the recommended searches, including local authority searches
  • Review the conditions of your mortgage offer and advise on amendments where necessary
  • Ensure all questions have been answered by your seller’s solicitor before you sign the contract
  • Exchange contracts with the seller on your behalf
  • Complete after-sale tasks such as the payment of Stamp Duty Land Tax to HM Revenue & Customs
