Do you require conveyancing in Bedford?

Buying property in Bedford will mean you must complete all the legal formalities that are required to transfer the ownership of the property to you. The transfer of ownership is known as conveyancing – whether you are buying or selling. Solicitors are usually used to draw up the contracts you need to exchange for the conveyancing process to proceed. You can also use a licensed conveyancer who will regulated by the Council for Licensed Conveyancers.

Much of the conveyancing process when buying a property in Bedford will be taken up with searches that your solicitor or licensed conveyancer will carry out on the property you want to buy. These searches are important, as they can reveal issues with the property you want to buy that could impact on your willingness to continue with the purchase. The searches that your Bedford-based conveyancing solicitor will carry out can include: 

  • Road change proposals
  • Environmental searches including proximity to rivers
  • Coal mining reports
  • Utilities infrastructure
  • Chancel check

The above list is by no means exhaustive. You should ensure your solicitor gives you a detailed and itemised breakdown of the searches they will perform and the costs that these will attract. Searches can have fixed or variable costs so make sure you know what you are paying for when engaging a conveyancing solicitor in Bedford to help with the purchase of your property.
