What will a conveyancer do for me?

A conveyancer:

  • Transfers the legal ownership of a home from one person to another
  • Will carry out searches for you. This is to make sure that you know more about the home before you buy it
  • Will deal with the offer from your lender, prepare the contracts and set a completion date
  • May help you to pay stamp duty.

How do I appoint an approved conveyancer?

To get a mortgage offer from YBS, we need to appoint a conveyancer to act on our behalf. We will use the same one that as you use, as long as they are on our panel of approved conveyancers. To find a conveyancer who is on our panel:
