Is the property over 5 storeys (11m)?

Many leasehold properties in Sheffield are in large buildings which now require an EWS1 certificate to confirm if the cladding is fire safe. Thankfully 2022's leaseholder protections mean that most leaseholders are not burdened with the cost of remediation of any defective cladding, but you will need to see the seller's Deed of Certificate to prove that the lease doesn't come with a nasty (and expensive) surprise.

Be particularly wary of purchasing a share of freehold as the freeholders may become liable for the cost of remedying defective cladding. Our specialist leasehold solicitors Sheffield are well experienced with handling all of these added complications, so you will be in safe hands with SAM. Property Challenges Solved.

There are many factors which can delay conveyancing in Sheffield. A very simple transaction can be completed in less than two months, but the average is closer to 12-16 weeks.

CQS Accreditation

All our panel solicitors are CQS accredited. You can trust the Conveyancing Quality Scheme for the highest standards of conveyancing.

Fixed Fee

Don't bother with an 'estimate' fee. You want to make sure that your total fee is fixed (they can't charge you more later) and it includes all the necessary components. We build your quote based on each of the costs involved in a standard transaction based on the information you give us, with no sneaky extra fees. If you have additional requirements, speak with a helpful team member to ensure everything you need is covered within your quote.

Communication

Not knowing what is going on is the most frustrating thing for a client. Many solicitors are too busy doing legal work to answer all their clients call for updates. With SAM Conveyancing, you'll have a dedicated conveyancing executive available Monday to Saturday. They'll keep you in the loop on progress, translate the legal jargon, chase your solicitor when required and email you about milestones.

Value

Get a fully comprehensive quote covering all your needs so you can accurately compare your options to ensure you're paying a good price.

Online conveyancing is just as safe as you protect your data on the internet, as you would in any other transaction. Online conveyancing means speedier turnaround times on documents, more convenient meetings and lower running costs for the firm. We pass our savings on to you.

Yes, if you're buying and selling at the same time, the same conveyancing solicitor can handle both transactions, which will save you money, as you'll only have to do the 'new client' admin once.

1. Get a mortgage in principle

Know what you can afford to save wasting time on any false-starts.

2. Instruct your conveyancing solicitor before you make your offer

Waiting till after your offer is accepted can delay your transaction. As early as possible, inform them of any details, such as gifted deposits. Using an online service cuts down on snail mail delays and waiting for physical meetings, which can be conducted by video call.

3. Apply for your mortgage quickly

As soon as your offer is accepted, you can submit your application. An independent broker can help speed this along.

4. Order your searches and surveys

Ordering these early can speed up your conveyancing process, especially if local authorities face delays. However, it is usually considered prudent to time this with the rest of your chain if a transaction falls through.

5. Get your building insurance ready

You'll need insurance from the exchange so research & compare insurance quotes, once your solicitor is instructed.

6. Paperwork (When selling)

Ensure you have your paperwork, including energy performance & FENSA certificates.
