If you are buying or selling a property, it can be advantageous to choose a local firm of solicitors with expertise in conveyancing to deal with your case.

We understand how important the sale or purchase of your home is and we are committed to completing transactions without delay while ensuring that all details are dealt with comprehensively.
We hold the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme accreditation, awarded to firms who consistently provide both legal excellence and outstanding service.
We have the best Google reviews from satisfied customers in the area and over a thousand reviews on the independent review site Review Solicitors. You can see them here.

You can contact a solicitor as soon as you decide to sell your property or to buy somewhere. If you ask us to represent you, we will go ahead and check your identity, as required by law, and open a file in readiness. If you are selling, we can also let you have the initial forms for completion, including a property information form and fixtures and fittings list.
If you would like us to carry out your conveyancing transaction, just give us a ring and we will send you the initial paperwork (which most of our customers prefer to do on our secure portal but it’s your choice) and let you know the first steps that need to be taken. We can also discuss the likely costs with you and answer any questions you may have, for example, potential timescales and what information you need to provide.
The length of time taken to complete a conveyancing transaction is on average between 8 and 12 weeks. Where several parties are linked in a chain of transactions, the time taken can be towards the longer end of this estimate as it will be necessary for everyone to be ready before contracts can be exchanged and a date for completion set.
Some of the issues that may take time include waiting for mortgage offers, dealing with problems that might arise on a survey, resolving legal difficulties with the title to a property or delays in receiving replies to enquiries.
At Lockings Solicitors, we respond promptly to all communications and do all we can to move transactions along smoothly. We also keep in close contact with our clients’ buyers’ and sellers’ solicitors so that we know if any delays are likely to arise that might need chasing on our part.
Our team has a great deal of local knowledge, both of the area and local developments, meaning we are often aware of potential difficulties from the outset. This means that we can deal with these early on and also ensure that you have an accurate costs estimate from the outset.
We have a good working relationship with other solicitors in the area as well as with local estate agents. We also know many of the local management agencies for flats and retirement apartments so we are able to contact them early in a transaction to secure the information needed for a sale.
Our local offices in Beverley, Hull and York welcome clients who would rather pop in with documents, such as identity documentation, or for assistance in filling in forms and other paperwork. Although many of our customers find it easier and more convenient to use our secure online portal, we are always particularly happy to help older clients who prefer to deal with us in person than remotely.
At Lockings Solicitors, we deal with a full range of residential conveyancing matters, including sales and purchases for clients in and around the East Yorkshire area.
If you are buying or selling a property and you would like to speak to one of our team, ring us on 01482 300 200, email us at email@example.com or fill in our contact form and we will call you back promptly for a FREE initial chat.
