Conveyancing is the process of transferring legal ownership of a property from one person to another.
What does a conveyancing solicitor do?
Conveyancing solicitors undertake all the legal work involved in the sale or purchase of a property.
These are the main conveyancing steps when you buy a home:
1. Initial checks
Your conveyancing solicitor completes initial paperwork which includes asking you for proof of identification and proof of address. They also carry out anti-money laundering checks.
2. Contract pack
The seller’s solicitor sends your solicitor a contract pack which includes a property information form and a fittings and contents form. Your solicitor checks this paperwork and raises any queries with the seller’s solicitor, for example, issues with boundary lines.
Your solicitor undertakes property searches. This includes local authority and planning searches to check for problems that could affect the value of the house.
They will also order a drainage and water search, environmental search, flood risk search and Land Registry pre-completion search. The latter ensures the person selling the property to you has the legal right to do so.
Depending on the property and location, other searches may also be needed.
4. Transfer deed and final searches
When all queries have been settled your solicitor sends you the transfer deed to sign. This document transfers property ownership from the seller to you. If you are taking out a mortgage you also sign a mortgage deed.
Your solicitor then conducts final checks with the Land Registry to make sure there have been no changes since initial searches were carried out.
5. Exchange of contracts
The transfer deed and contracts are exchanged between your solicitor and the seller’s solicitor. At this point you are legally committed to the purchase, and a moving date is agreed.
6. Completion of sale
Money for the purchase is transferred from your solicitor to the seller’s solicitor. Once the money has cleared you can move into your new home.
7. Post completion
Following completion your solicitor completes the legal side of your property purchase. They register the property in your name with the Land Registry and pay any stamp duty land tax due to the HMRC.
Your solicitor then invoices you for all disbursements (fees they have paid to third parties on your behalf).

Absolute pleasure to deal with. Efficient service, professional conduct and record turnaround time. I will highly recommend Blossom Law to anyone looking for a firm to handle their property purchase. Thank you Oye and Charlotte!
Charlotte has been super-efficient in communication and service to our company. I have been running an estate agent for the pass 8 Years and I have not come a across any conveyance solicitors that have had us agents best of interest. I would be recommending Charlotte in the future to our clients for sure.
The service I received from Blossom Law was efficient and stress-free, I felt like Shennell was really on the ball and pushed me for information rather than the other way around which kept things moving smoothly.
We had a very good experience with this firm when selling a house. Communication was good and the staff were friendly and approachable. Thank you, Ketsia and everyone at Blossom Law Solicitors.

I was very pleased with how Blossom Law Solicitors handled the sale of my property. I received regular emails informing me of how the sale was going and any issues were resolved quickly. They were friendly and professional regarding every aspect of the sale, and I completed on the day that was agreed with no problems. I would highly recommend them.
I highly recommend this company! They have been helpful and forthcoming always! Great service and friendly members!

Had a lovely experience while using Blossom Law. Always approachable when needed. Can't fault anything. Will be using you all again for sure. Thanks for all your help and making the sale so easy and effortless.
In our recent move from Roundways to Keynsham we found the professional service we received from Blossom law was of a very high standard from the team, especially from Shennell Richards and Oye Edokpolor. We were kept informed regularly by email and phone of any progress being made with our move and sale. We always found the staff very helpful, professional and polite. We would be very happy to recommend Blossom Law for any future transactions, especially with the sale and purchase of property.
We were very happy with the service you provided during the sale of our late mother's house. We found that the Blossom Law team were responsive, efficient and good value.
We found the level of service from Shennell and all at Blossom Law Solicitors outstanding and I would have no trouble in recommending them to anyone. Shennell is a highly efficient individual, replying to every query and email within hours if not minutes which we appreciated as we were one of several buyers in a chain. I’d be more than happy to recommend to anyone to use Blossom Law and Shennell in particular. All in all the usually stressful experience of house buying was smooth and straightforward.
