How long does conveyancing take in Oxford?

Whilst the national average for conveyancing is 20 weeks, Juno ensures it’s done more effectively. On average, Juno completes conveyancing in 12 weeks. However, if both the seller and purchaser use Juno for the same transaction, we usually complete 2-3 weeks quicker. Leasehold properties may take a little longer because lawyers may need to correspond with the management company.

What searches are involved in conveyancing?

The main searches in conveyancing include local authority checks, environmental searches, and water & drainage searches. These checks are crucial to inform potential issues surrounding the property.

What issues should buyers consider when purchasing a home in Oxford?

When purchasing a home in Oxford, issues such as flood risk, the quality of the local schools, proximity to the city centre or the University, and access to public transport may affect your decision.

What documents do I need to buy a house?

To buy a house, you’ll need to provide documents like a valid photo ID (passport or driving license), proof of funds (for example, savings or investment statements), and your mortgage offer.

What documents do I need to sell a house?

When selling a house with Juno, you’ll need to provide documents such as a valid photo ID (passport or driving licence), and details of your mortgage, if any. You’ll also need to provide documents like Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), filled property information forms TA6 and TA10, leasehold management packs (for leaseholds), etc. which Juno’s legal team will guide you through.

Is there a conveyancing regulator?

Yes, conveyancers in England and Wales are regulated by the Council for Licensed Conveyancers (CLC).

What is the ‘Exchange of Contracts’?

The ‘Exchange of Contracts’ is a key part of the conveyancing process. It is when the contract that has been agreed by both parties is formally exchanged, legally binding the buyer and seller to the sale and purchase of a property. At this stage, the completion date is also typically agreed.

Why is a property survey necessary?

A house survey is important because it can bring to light potential structural problems with the property. This can influence your decision to buy or renegotiate the sale price. Without a survey, you might find yourself with unexpected repair costs.

I had tried other conveyancers but was not very impressed. Like everyone the internet was next and Juno came up. Checked the reviews and they were positive. So I used them for the sale of my house. I am very impressed with them and the dashboard they use. They kept me up to date with the total experience. Very reasonably priced.

The updates are regular by email, the dashboard is thorough, the documentation is so easy to load and access and when you do need to speak to them you can get them on the phone and they explain things properly. All that and they are a fantastic price, unbelievable to me that the service is provided at such a low cost.

Best customer service I have received ever! Process was made simple, fast, conveyancing team knew what they were doing and the rest of the team always answered any question extremely fast. The dashboard system meant that we would receive regular updates without even needing to ask!
