Buying / Selling Property Back to top

1.) What makes movehomefaster.co.uk different from any other conveyancing service?

Movehomefaster.co.uk refers the online Conveyancing services to Beeston Shenton Solicitors. Whilst operating an Online Conveyancing Service, Beeston Shenton Solicitors are a high street firm which means you receive an excellent and professional service at a competitive price. They are not a "Conveyancing factory" and your file will be dealt with by a qualified property specialist.

2.) Is online Conveyancing cheaper?

Using Beeston Shenton’s online conveyancing service is cheaper that your traditional high street firm prices. Conduct of your file and transaction will always be overseen by a qualified solicitor and supported by a well trained team of legal assistants. As their work is done online and via email, there is a saving on conveyancing costs and that saving is given to you by providing lower fees. Beeston Shenton guarantee no hidden extras and what's more, if your sale does not proceed to completion, you do not have to worry about our legal fee.

7.) Will I have to provide Identification?

Identification will be needed in order to complete either a sale or a purchase. This is to comply with Money Laundering Regulations, which stipulate that we must obtain evidence of a client’s identity. We will ideally need, for each owner of the property,  a valid passport and/or driving license together with a copy of the utility bill. If the originals cannot be supplied, we will require certified copies.

8.) Are there any hidden costs?

No, there are no hidden costs associated with our conveyancing service. We will provide you with a fixed legal fee to cover the work. We will only ever increase the fee if, during the transaction, something comes to light which was unforeseen. If this did happen, we would discuss this with you before incurring extra charges.

9.) What is the difference between an exchange of contracts and completion?

An exchange is when the buyer and seller enter into a legally binding agreement to buy and sell on a set date. Once an exchange has taken place, both parties are committed to the sale/purchase, and cannot pull out of the transaction without legal penalties. Exchange of contracts is also when the buyer must pay a  deposit, usually 10%.  Completion refers to the day on which all payments have been made/received, that the property is transferred from the seller to the buyer; the day that you move house.

12.) What happens to deeds when purchasing a house?

Most properties are now registered at the Land Registry and the legal documents are held electronically by them.  We will send you copies of the documents, and any other supporting documents once the application for registration has been completed. Any old deeds that are no longer needed to prove title to the property, would normally be sent to you.

13.) Do you use SRA Regulated Solicitors?

Yes! We only refer to solicitors that are SRA Regulated and Law Society Conveyancing Quality Scheme Accredited. The CQS scheme gives customers peace of mind during property transactions and ensures the solicitors meet their strict guidelines - this means you're in safe hands when you use Move Home Faster! Find out more about the Conveyancing Quality Scheme here.

16.) Is there anything I have to do?

The majority of the conveyancing process is handled by us; however you do have some obligations. Talking with us is a great way to find out what exactly will be happening and what you will need to do.
