The conveyancers at WB Pennine Solicitors are qualified in all areas of property law. We are here to help you at every stage; from making an offer to getting the keys to the door.

We offer personal one-to-one services in buying, selling, remortgaging, and transfers of equity. WB Pennine Solicitors specialises in fast, straightforward conveyancing. It is our job to take the stress and strain out of buying or selling your property, ensuring a smooth and efficient completion.

How Our Conveyancing Solicitors Can Help You

Our conveyancing solicitors recognise that buying or selling your home is likely to be the most expensive transaction you will ever make. We understand that you’re worried about getting all the details right.

It is our aim to take the worry out of these life-changing transactions. We specialise in modern, swift, cost-effective conveyancing. We’ll work quickly and effectively, and always update you as soon as there’s an update on your case.

Our conveyancing teams are also proactive when it comes to chasing other people involved in the transaction. That could be the buyer’s or seller’s solicitor, estate agents or lenders. Our goal is to reduce any potential delays, so you can get the removal van booked and start picking paint colours as soon as possible.

Conveyancing FAQs

Buying or selling a house or flat is an involved process with several stages, each coming with their own unique challenges and potential pitfalls.

The three main stages are:

  1. Offer and acceptance
  2. Exchange of contracts
  3. Completion

Conveyancing solicitors should be involved from the very start to make sure every stage goes smoothly.

On average, a house purchase or sale takes around 8 to 12 weeks, with a whole series of legal steps to complete.

However, it’s impossible to say exactly how long your conveyancing transaction will take. It will depend entirely on the complexity of the transaction and whether any issues arise during the process that could delay things.

That being said, as an experienced department, we have dealt with many property transactions, so you can relax because you are certainly in safe hands. We manage the whole process, and we will keep you informed as we go along. We do not believe anyone should put up with the endless delays you hear about.

Stamp Duty is a tax that sometimes falls due when you buy a property in England or Northern Ireland. Wales and Scotland have their own equivalent taxes called Land Transaction Tax and Land and Buildings Transaction Tax respectively.

You may not have to pay Stamp Duty when buying a property if:

  • The price of the property is below the tax free threshold.
  • You are first time buyer – you can get relief from Stamp Duty on the first £300,000 of purchases worth up to £500,000.

As part of our conveyancing service, we can help you calculate whether Stamp Duty is owed and handle the tax return and payment to HMRC.

For specific advice about tax (including other kinds of tax like Income Tax and Capital Gains Tax if you are buying a buy to let property), you should always speak to an independent tax advisor as we cannot provide this advice.

Any legal matter involving property is bound to be expensive, so we are happy to do your conveyancing for a fixed price.

We’ll provide a quote at the beginning of your instruction which includes all anticipated costs. This gives you certainty about how much your property transaction will cost from start-to-finish, allowing you to budget accordingly.
