Frequently Asked Questions

How does the conveyancing process work for buying a property in York?

After signing up with Juno, we begin with securing your mortgage and funding. Your search reports are ordered and reviewed by our team. Following this, the seller’s lawyer sends us a draft contract, the Land Registry records, and an information pack. We do recommend our clients to get a survey in addition to any mortgage valuation.

Next, we ask the seller’s lawyer to clarify and fix any legal issues with the property. After they are resolved, we provide you with a report before moving forward to the exchange and completion stages. Lastly, we register the property in your name.

How does the conveyancing process work for selling a property in York?

The conveyancing process for selling with Juno is very simple. After signing up with Juno, we draft a contract, fetch the land registry records, and send it to the buyer’s lawyer. We then ask you to provide detailed information and documents for the property you’re selling. This can be easily done online with Juno.

If you’re selling a leasehold, you’ll need to request a Management Pack from your management company. We will also need your current mortgage statements. After addressing any enquiries from the buyer’s lawyer, we arrange for the exchange and aim for a swift completion.

How long does conveyancing take in York?

The national average for conveyancing is 20 weeks. However, Juno’s average completion time is 12 weeks for a freehold property. Leaseholds may take longer, given the need to correspond with a company. However, if a seller and purchaser both use Juno for the same transaction, the completion can be 2-3 weeks quicker.

What searches are involved in conveyancing?

In conveyancing, main searches include local authority checks, environmental checks, and water & drainage searches.

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

Buyers should consider the age and historical preservation of some homes in York, as this can affect future modifications. They should also check flood risks given York’s proximity to rivers. Also, York’s city centre tends to be busier due to tourism and university events, which might be a consideration for some buyers.

What documents do I need to buy a house?

You will need a photo ID (passport or driving licence), 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 your photo ID, details of your mortgage, and other documents related to the house.

Rated ‘Excellent’ on Trustpilot


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.

Excellent service throughout with regular updates and easy to complete questionnaires as the sale progressed. The online dashboard was excellent for keeping on top of the process. Communication was prompt and phone calls answered quickly by Juno's team.

We were a bit nervous about who to use but Juno made everything so easy with their Dashboard that tells you exactly where you are in the process, meaning you never have to chase them for an update. All the actions they had to take were taken within 24h, which was great as we were keen to complete the sale fast.
