A big part of the moving process is the legal side of it. In order to make sure that the property legally belongs to you, you will need to get a solicitor that specialises in property law like this conveyancing Cheltenham based solicitor to deal with this for you.
When you are looking for a conveyancing solicitor, there are lots of things that you can do to find the right one for you – speak to friends and family who may have used one recently, or ask your estate agent if they can recommend anyone.
Before you go ahead, get a quote. This will then give you a good idea what the cost of the process will be as long as all goes according to plan. Many of the conveyancing solicitors fees also cover other things, such as searches and in some cases stamp duty, so it is worth asking for the quote to be broken down so you can see what is actually included in it.
You should also get an idea of how long the process is expected to take. They will be able to look at your situation and give you a rough estimate. You can also ask them if they will keep in touch with you throughout to update you on how it is progressing – this will help you to get an idea of when you can expect to be moving and also if you need to do anything or make arrangements.
