It’s not called one of the most stressful events in your life for no reason!
Selling a house can be difficult, long-winded, and expensive in the UK. And while it can be tempting to try and do all of this yourself to save some money, that usually makes the entire situation tougher.

Want to know more about what our conveyancing solicitors Emsworth do? Read on to find out!
What does conveyancing involve?
Conveyancing in the UK involves the preparation of documents that are needed to either buy or sell a property.
The process can also extend to applying for mortgages, performing searches, getting surveys on the property, holding auctions (if you are selling your home), and of course, the transfer of legal contracts.
When you hire our conveyancing solicitors Emsworth, we can do all of this and more for you, which is a huge relief for many of our clients.
Is a conveyancer the same as a solicitor?
No; a conveyancer has expertise that is specific to the area of buying and selling homes.
When you hire a solicitor who is specialised in conveyancing, they may have other areas of expertise in law, such as family law or even criminal law.
Also, a solicitor has had to undertake extensive training through university and other courses to earn their title, hence why it is often more expensive to hire a solicitor.
How long does conveyancing take?
This varies and will depend on your situation.
On average, the conveyancing process takes between 8-12 weeks, but there are many parts of the process that can slow it down.
And of course, if you are selling your home, our team will need to ensure that you have all of the required paperwork to do so. If you inherited the home from a family member or the house is over 100 years old, then surveys and searches will need to be carried out, which can take up to and over 12 weeks.
Why is it needed or recommended in the UK?
Conveyancing is needed in the UK as it ensures that the person who owns the land, house or commercial property secures the title and all of the legal requirements that come with it.
It also helps the owner of said property to be legally notified of any issues that accompany the buying of a property.
Why should I choose Andrew and Andrew for conveyancing?
Because our team will adopt a proactive approach towards the buying or selling of any property.
We will ensure that the process is performed quickly, with minimal stress to you and will make sure that any problems which may arise will be resolved promptly.
And with our experience in this area, you have got nothing to worry about whether you are buying or selling!
