Conveyancing Solicitors for the Legal Side of Moving Home
Moving house with the help of a professional property solicitor makes things faster, easier and more secure. We don’t like taking risks with the sale or purchase of our most valuable asset, and our team of property conveyancing solicitors makes sure of that.
The team at Cunningtons in Solihull provide Conveyancing for buying and selling property throughout England and Wales, and locally around Solihull and Birmingham.
Conveyancing Solicitors for Purchase
The process we go through when helping a client buy their home involves:
- contacting the seller’s solicitor to check title deeds,
- implementing necessary searches (read about your search options here),
- talking to the mortgage company to confirm the required money is in place to buy the property, and
- reporting back with all the required documents for them to sign.
Then when they have exchanged contracts, we
- make sure the deposit money is in the right place,
- prepare all the papers and statements for completion,
- submit the certificate of title to the mortgage lender,
- ensure all the search information is received,
- then make sure that money from the mortgage lender is in the correct account.
When all this is done, it’s time for completion – we
- make sure all the funds have been paid to the seller’s solicitor in exchange for the deeds and any other documents,
- finalise the client account,
- pay the required stamp duty,
- and register the new owner with the Land Registry.

Conveyancing Solicitors for Selling
The conveyancing process for selling a house or flat is slightly simpler than when you are buying, although the legal part is just as important.
When a client has signed up with Cunningtons as their conveyancing solicitor to look after the legal side of selling property:
- Their mortgage company sends us their title deeds, as well as a statement of the amount of money still owing for their property.
- The buyer’s solicitor asks us for any further information they need.
- We then prepare a sale contract with preferred dates to complete
– this leads up to the Exchange of Contracts.
- The buyer then pays the deposit money into our solicitor account, and
- we are sent a statement from the mortgage company.
- As the vendor’s conveyancing solicitor we receive all the money needed to pay the estate agent’s commission fee,
- we account for this in the closing financial statement.
- We move the money from the sale to the seller, their estate agent, and the mortgage company.
- We arrange for the seller’s estate agent to hand over the keys to the property’s new owner.
- We then send any remaining money to the seller, as well as a statement detailing all the expenses of the sale.
- Finally, we send over the deeds to the buyer’s solicitors – and the property is now legally sold.

Conveyancing Solicitors for Remortgaging
When you remortgage, you still need to make sure the legal side is taken care of to ensure your house or flat is secure. Our property conveyancing service has you covered here too.
Your nominated solicitor:
- receives your title deeds, as well as a copy of your title from the Land Registry.
- they then run your search options as needed.
- Your lender sends your solicitor your new mortgage offer,
- and you get sent the mortgage deed to sign.
- They arrange to receive the money from your new loan from your mortgage lender, and
- get an updated account of your loan amount.
One or two final search checks, then your remortgage is complete – the remaining money goes into the correct accounts and your remortgage is registered with the Land Registry.
