How long does conveyancing take in Sheffield?

On average, the conveyancing process in the UK takes around 20 weeks. However, Juno, thanks to its online approach and expert team, completes conveyancing 8 weeks faster than this average, taking only approximately 12 weeks to completion for a freehold property. Leaseholds can take longer, often due to corresponding with a management company. Additionally, if both the seller and purchaser use Juno for the same transaction, we usually complete 2-3 weeks quicker.

What searches are involved in conveyancing?

The main searches involved in conveyancing are local authority checks, environmental checks, and water and drainage searches. These searches help identify any potential issues or legal constraints associated with the property.

What should buyers consider when purchasing a home in Sheffield?

Buyers in Sheffield should consider factors like the property’s proximity to the city centre, access to public transport, closeness to schools (if required), and the general neighbourhood environment and security. Also, Sheffield has areas prone to flooding, so checking for a flood risk is essential before purchasing a property.

What documents do I need to buy a house?

To buy a house, you will require a photo ID (such as a passport or driving license), proof of funds (bank statements), and your mortgage offer.

What documents do I need to sell a house?

To sell a house, you will need a photo ID (such as a passport or driving licence) and details of the mortgage. Our skilled legal team will guide you through creating or finding the other required documents, such as an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), property information forms TA6 and TA10, and leasehold management packs.

Why does the conveyancing process take longer for leaseholds?

Conveyancing for leaseholds can take longer because a lawyer may often need to correspond with a management company to get vital information about the lease. This information includes details about ground rent, service charges, and any upcoming major works. Extra time may be required to clarify and resolve any issues arising from this information.

Can I proceed with the conveyance without a mortgage in place?

While you can start the conveyancing process without a mortgage in place, it’s preferable to wait until you have an Agreement in Principle (AIP). This agreement indicates how much the lender is willing to offer you, based on your financial circumstances, giving you a certain degree of confidence about your purchasing power.

Is it possible to speed up the conveyancing process?

While we aim to provide a fast service, the speed of the conveyancing process also depends on factors beyond our control, such as the seller’s solicitor’s responsiveness, the length of the chain, and how quickly searches return. To help things progress as swiftly as possible, it’s beneficial to promptly respond to any requests for information and to ensure all necessary documentation is readily available.
