What is Residential Property Conveyancing?

Simply put, residential property conveyancing is the handling of all the legal and administrative work involved in transferring a property from one person’s ownership to another.

The process generally takes place in three parts and our role as your lawyer will depend on whether you are buying and/or selling a property.

Agreeing the sale

Once the sale on a property is agreed upon, a large amount of information needs to be gathered and verified. This includes the identities of all parties involved, the financial position of the prospective buyer and whether there are any debts or charges held against the property for sale, including any outstanding mortgage.

The title deed for the property will be required along with the Energy Performance Certificate and the Property Information Form, containing details such as boundary responsibilities, property access, planning permissions, fixtures and fittings and utility providers.

It is at this stage that the relevant searches will be carried out on the property such as water, environmental, telecommunications, railway and Local Authority searches. These are a legal requirement for any property being bought with a mortgage and help to verify the information provided by the seller. The buyer’s survey will also be carried out by the lender to confirm the property’s value.

Exchange

Once all the relevant checks have been carried out and the paperwork completed, the contracts will be prepared by the lawyers on both sides. Any issues will be resolved before contracts are signed and, once these are exchanged, the sale becomes legally binding and a date is set for completion.

Completion

The amount of time between the exchange of contracts and completion can vary and can be anything from a few days to a couple of weeks so that the final paperwork can be prepared and the funds for the purchase put in place.

These must be made available at least one working day before the completion date.

On the day of completion, all fees associated with the transaction will be settled and any outstanding mortgage paid before any money left over is transferred to the seller.

At this stage, the sale is complete, and the new owner is registered with the Land Registry. Any reference to the previous owner and mortgage will also be removed.

Living in Oswestry

The ancient town of Oswestry is one of the largest in Shropshire behind only Telford and Shrewsbury in terms of population.

It is located close to the Welsh border and is popular amongst homeowners thanks to its diverse character, affordability, local amenities and employment opportunities.

The town is famed for its magnificent history, which dates all the way back to the Iron Age. The 3,000-year-old settlement, Oswestry Hill Fort is considered to be one of the best-preserved forts of its kind in the UK and is a focus for the town’s booming tourist industry.

Visitors are drawn to the galleries and museums in the town including Oswestry Town Museum, Cambrian Railway Museum and the Oswestry Visitor and Exhibition Centre in Cae Glas Park, which has a permanent display dedicated to World War 1 poet Wilfred Owen, arguably Oswestry’s most famous former resident.

The park itself sprawls across a full seven acres, offering a peaceful escape from town life. It is a popular location for people to meet and enjoy the outdoors and features a children’s play area and sports facilities including a bowling green, tennis courts, football pitches and crazy golf.

Oswestry also benefits from a vibrant calendar of events that run throughout the year including the annual Beer Festival and the Oswestry Food and Drink Festival. For two days each summer, the finest local produce is featured on market stalls and cafes throughout the town, while the numerous pubs and coffee shops are always guaranteed to provide a delicious bite to eat.

Oswestry also offers a diverse shopping experience with indoor and outdoor markets, bookshops, farm shops and independents in amongst the famous high street names.

Education in Oswestry

The high number of good schools in the area, make Oswestry a popular choice amongst families.

Primary schools include Woodside Primary School, Bryn Offa Church of England Primary School, Morda Church of England Primary School and Our Lady and St Oswald Catholic Primary School, while The Marches is the main secondary school for students aged 11-18.

Independent schools in the area are Moreton Hall School and Oswestry School, a small private co-educational boarding and day school.

North Shropshire College is also located in Oswestry, providing post-16 education to young people and adults in the area and providing a range of academic and vocational courses.

Transport links

Oswestry is within easy reach of Shrewsbury, Wrexham and Cheshire by both road and rail, with links to the mainline train network accessed by the nearby stations of Gobowen and Chirk.

Road access to the surrounding towns and cities is good although the major consultation currently underway features plans to upgrade the transport links even further as part of the Future Oswestry Plan.

The housing market in Oswestry

Oswestry is incredibly popular with first time buyers and young families due to its affordability and diverse range of housing stock.

There is something to suit all tastes and budgets including Georgian townhouses, large Victorian and Edwardian properties as well as smaller cottages and terraces.

Amongst the abundance of 1930s and 1960s style semi-detached properties, there are also more modern housing developments with different styles and sizes offering between two and five bedrooms.

The average price for property in Oswestry is currently £225,134 and a rise of 1.93% on the previous quarter.

Apartments cost on average £107,867 while terraced houses are selling for £145,066.

(Figures from Zoopla, November 2020).

The job market in and around Oswestry

There are good employment opportunities in Oswestry with almost 1,000 different businesses running operations from the town and employing more than 6,000 people.

The three largest sectors are retail, education and manufacturing, which together account for more than 40% of all employment here.  There is a trend towards fewer jobs in the public sector as private sector employment increases. The town’s market, which dates back to 1190, and the nearby shopping centre serve both northwest Shropshire and mid-Wales with the largest businesses here being the supermarket giants Sainsbury’s, Asda, Tesco and Morrisons. Eight out of 10 companies based in the town however are small businesses, employing fewer than five people.
