Step-by-step conveyancing steps in Badminton

Getting a quoteBefore the legal work can get underway, you must get a conveyancing solicitor.

Instructing a solicitor Before your conveyancer can start the conveyancing work for your Badminton sale or purchase, you must instruct them. To do this you absolutely must scour their fine print for further charges e.g. fees for acting on a leasehold property , before agreeing to them.

Post-instructionYour conveyancing solicitor, once instructed, will communicate with the solicitor instructed by the other side to receive the draft contract. This document sets out the sale price, identities of the two parties, deposits, and title deed information. The contract is finalised, and a date may be set for completion.

Instruct the Home SurveyWhen buying a property, you will be invariably advised to get a survey as it can determine any possible issues, for instance unsafe attic conversions or furniture beetle. Gloucestershire RICS surveyors conversant with Badminton will, in addition, be conscious of regional factors including interlocking clay tiles.

SearchesDrainage and Water, Chancel Liability, Local Authority and Environmental are the four standard searches generally recommended by lawyers, and these cover issues including planning permission. In addition, your solicitor may also recommend potential further searches.

Exchange of contractsContracts are exchanged, and the purchaser hands over the deposit (usually 10% of the sale price).

CompletionThe balance of the purchase price is paid to the seller's conveyancing solicitor, and the buyer collects the keys.

Post Completion IssuesAt the point you have the keys, your Badminton solicitor has unfinished paperwork to complete e.g. sending out completion documents.

Help to Buy Conveyancing

Almost 20, 000 home buyers purchased their home under the Help to Buy scheme in the first 9 months. There are two Help to Buy schemes, the Equity Loan and Mortgage Guarantee. Each aims to assist home movers who have saved a 5% deposit, but are otherwise quite different. The Mortgage Guarantee enables lenders to offer up to a 95% mortgage. The Equity Loan comprises a 20% equity loan from the Government, which can be repaid at any time.

Call the Money Advice Service, or your local Help to Buy agent for further information on the Help to Buy programme.
