Residential Conveyancing

Residential Conveyancing

Wadsworths have been assisting the people of Solihull to move house for more than 25 years

We are experts in both the field of property law, and also the local property market. We have excellent links with all of the major estate agents, as well as all of the other, local Solicitors.

As such, we are able to draw on this experience to provide a personal and dedicated service to all of our conveyancing clients and to do everything possible to ensure that the process runs smoothly and successfully.

Whether you are a first time buyer or a property developer, we have experience in acting for people just like you, and are able to tailor our service to suit you.

We also fully appreciate that, whatever type of property owner or purchaser you are, the conveyancing process can be very stressful. We pride ourselves on being able to minimise that stress, and we do everything we can to try to ensure that matters run smoothly and simply for you.

We offer fixed fee services for most conveyancing services, and prior to your instructing us we will have provided our estimate, for you to agree. That way, you will neither incur any fees before the transaction commences, nor will you be hit with any additional costs that you weren’t expecting.

In some cases, it is not possible to provide a fixed fee for the service, for example if there are uncertainties about what will be involved. In those circumstances, we will give you an estimate of costs, which will not be exceeded without your express permission.

Like with all of our work, our dedication to customer service is what we hope you will take away from dealing with us and also what we hope will set us apart from our competitors.

Unfortunately, no one can predict the exact time a conveyancing transaction will take. The length of the chain (i.e. how many properties are involved), the type of transaction and the speed of other parties in responding to and submitting paperwork will all affect the process. For a straightforward transaction, completion should usually take place within 6-8 weeks of instruction, however this can never be guaranteed.
