At Core Conveyancing we understand how important it is for clients to know what is happening every step of the way when buying a property. We also understand that, for many clients, finding time to keep in touch with their conveyancers during a busy day at work or at home, can be difficult.

Core Conveyancing give their clients access to a unique online quoting and diary system. Simply log into your own personal and secure diary page to check with the progress of your sale or purchase at any time of the day or night. Your diary is updated whenever work is carried out on your file and we will also advise you of the next step and when we expect to achieve it. An SMS text message is sent to advise you when your page is updated or a response from you is required.

Our straightforward, easy to use system enables our busy clients to keep in touch with progress instantly, without any need to contact us by telephone or e-mail, although we are happy to speak with you at any time should you need to contact us direct. This enables us to deliver an efficient, speedy service that allows us to give you a great service at a great price.

At Core Conveyancing we have a team of qualified lawyers who will oversee your transaction from your initial instructions to completion, and we are always on hand to speak to you should you need to discuss anything with us.

And remember, our prices are guaranteed to be free from hidden extras, so if you find a cheaper quote elsewhere make sure you check that all our services are included in the price. Click on our quote tab to get a costs quotation and details of all inclusive services.

Conveyancing is the legal work involved in buying or selling property.

A conveyancer is a qualified lawyer who is either a Solicitor, a Legal Executive, or a Licensed Conveyancer.

The process of conveyancing involves carrying out searches, checking the legal title to the property, raising or answering pre-contract enquiries, dealing with any mortgage conditions, drafting or approving the contract for the sale or purchase, drafting or approving the Transfer Deed, approving and completing any mortgage Deed, exchanging contracts and completing the sale or purchase, redeeming any existing mortgage, and registering your purchase and mortgage with the Land Registry.

At Core Conveyancing we aim to take the hassle out of moving house.

Our expert team of conveyancers are here to ensure that your move is dealt with as easily and as cost effectively as possible. By using our simple system you can keep track of the progress of your transaction at a time that suits you, without having to contact us by phone or e-mail.

With our easy-to-use online quoting and diary system you can be sure that you’re getting the best possible conveyancing service to fit in around your busy lifestyle. It’s simple and we guarantee the highest of standards.


Energy performance certificates

The requirement for a Home Information Pack has been suspended by the Government as from 21 May 2010, and the Government propose a permanent abolition.

This means that sellers no longer have to pay for searches to be performed on their property at the time of placing their property on the market. However, an Energy Performance Certificate will still be required. This involves an inspection of your property by a qualified Energy Inspector who will then prepare a report. Prices vary depending on the size of your home and the area in which you live, but the cost of a report is typically between £60 and £100. If you have not already arranged a report we would be happy to arrange this for you when taking your instructions to act for you on your sale.


Joint Ownership

At Core Conveyancing we understand that in modern life many more people own property jointly whether they are spouses, civil partners, co-habitees, friends or relatives.

You may wish to ensure that the property goes to your joint owner if one of you dies, or you may wish to ensure that your share in the property can be left to others in your Will; you may wish to protect your investment in the property and share the remaining equity; you may have invested money but your joint owner will pay the mortgage- whatever agreement you have reached you need expert advice to ensure that your wishes and intentions are put into effect.

You can discuss your requirements with us in confidence and we can advise you as to which type of ownership is most suitable for you, and whether this can be included in the transfer deed, or whether you would benefit from having a more detailed Declaration of Trust.

If you are not married or in a civil partnership then you may also wish to consider having a Relationship Agreement drawn up to record your agreement as to ownership, not just of your home, but also with regard to other assets, and to any arrangements you may have agreed in the event that you wish to separate. Whilst no-one likes to think about it all going wrong, having a Relationship Agreement can ease the pain of a separation by setting out what each party will keep if the worst happens.



The Core Conveyancing service is available for all residential sales and purchases throughout England and Wales for properties up to £500,000.00.

If your property is worth more than £500,000.00 then please visit our partner site Core Law for details of our personal conveyancing service and country house department.
