Need help with a remortgage or transfer of equity / deed of gift? Our guides will walk you through the process and highlight some of the common pitfalls. Mortgages and transfers can be very simple procedures but complex issues can sometimes arise and mistakes are easily made. These guides will help you deal with them.
So you want to have a go at your own conveyancing? First you should read about the risks, then if you're still happy to proceed, our guides will take you through each stage of the process telling you what to look out for and helping you avoid falling into expensive traps. Our subscription service will give you access to all of the documents you should need for your conveyancing and we can even supply you with the Land Registry Official Copies you'll need. Our general guides will cover all the obstacles you are likely to face and offer a practical solution. Have a look at our sale and purchase guides too.
A big part of the conveyancing process is the conveyancing searches. This section tells you all about them. What they are, how and when to order them and how to interpret the results. Each search has its own guide and you'll see they are separated into Standard (should be done in every case), Regional (area specific) and Optional (not essential but often useful tools for the would be purchaser). All buyers should beware that when you buy a property, the law assumes that you have seen the information that would have been revealed by searches whether or not you have actually carried them out, so you buy the property subject to the results.
Using a conveyancer to handle your conveyancing will greatly reduce the risk to you and sometimes, particularly if you are taking out a new mortgage, you will have no choice but to instruct a conveyancer. The good news is it doesn't have to break the bank. Get a free, instant quote here. We can also help with quick easy quotes for other moving related services.

You will be charged £3 for every lead we supply. There is no maximum number of leads which we may potentially supply in any given month however if you want to cap your spend you can do so by entering a monthly spending limit here. You can update this any time. You will stop receiving leads once your monthly spending limit is reached. We will automatically start sending leads again from the first day of the next calendar month.
You will be invoiced monthly in arrears on the 1st of the month for leads provided in the preceding month.
There are a couple of reasons why you might not be receiving leads. First, is your account active? If not see “Why is my account not active?” above. Second, are your fees to high? We currently order firms according to the total fees charged in respect of a particular client and we only provide leads to the cheapest 3 – 5 firms. We look at the total fees including any supplements such as leasehold supplements or fees for preparing the SDLT form. You may need to revise your fees to obtain more leads. Kindly note however that it is a breach of the referral agreement to misrepresent your fees in the fee settings in order to acquire additional leads.
Leads will be sent to you by email so you should also ensure that you are checking the email inbox which you provided to us when registering.
You have complete discretion over the fees you charge. Unlike some referrers we do not impose a fee scale on you. If your fees are too high however you may find that you get fewer quotes.
In order to comply with Outcome 9.7 of Chapter 9 of the Code of Conduct for Solicitors 2011 any agreement where an introducer is paid a fee for referrals must be in writing. The Council for Licensed Conveyancers also recommend to their members that referral agreements are in writing.
You may cancel your membership at any time by giving us not less than 5 working days' notice in writing. If you wish to stop receiving leads in the meantime however you can reduce your monthly budget.
You have the option to set a monthly budget. This can be any amount you choose and once your total liability for a month equals your monthly budget we will automatically stop sending you leads (and you will stop incurring liability) until the start of the next calendar month. For example if your budget is £90 and we are charging £3 per lead then, once you have received 30 leads you will receive no more that month unless you increase your budget.
When a user requests a quote using our service you will receive an email with the potential client's details and details of the proposed transaction. Likewise the potential client will receive an email with your details.

There are two ways in which we generate leads. Some of our traffic is organic, that is users find our site when searching for various things on Google and in addition we advertise our quote service. We do not and will not offer incentives to users to request quotes.
We offer each lead to between 3 – 5 firms depending on the number of active firms on our panel at any one time.
Currently our system calculates which firms are cheapest based on the transaction information entered by the potential client and we offer the lead to the cheapest 3 – 5 firms.
Currently we order firms according to their fees for the particular transaction, cheapest first. We look at the total fees charges, including any supplements such as leasehold supplements or fees for preparing the SDLT. Leads will only be provided to the cheapest 3 – 5 firms based on the details entered by the potential client.
We cannot say how many leads you will receive. This will depend on how many firms we have on the panel at any given time, how competitive your prices are and of course how many quote requests we receive.
