Over the last four years, property values in Gloucestershire have risen. Rising by £3, 196 compared to last year, the Land Registry recorded properties bought with an average of £174, 516 in October 2013.

Residential property prices nationwide are predicted to continue to rise through 2014. Causes of the rise include the government's extension of Help to Buy and low interest rates. These circumstances are unlikely to last, however, with for some property journalists, a slowdown is expected by 2016.

Conveyancing Process

Selecting a quote

Going with the estate agents' preference is often a costly affair, and many people find a better price online. It is important to check the terms and conditions for any hidden additional fees prior to instructing.

Getting your solicitor

At the point you have decided upon the solicitors quote you wish to agree to the next step is to formally appoint them on the legals on your Berkeley sale or purchase. You must always check the Berkeley solicitors small print for any extra fees e.g. costs for acting on a leasehold property , before consenting to them.

Initial phases

The purchaser's conveyancer agrees the draft contract with the seller's property lawyer. Also pre-contract enquires are sent. The final draft is agreed by both sides' conveyancing solicitors, and dates may be confirmed for exchange and completion.

Book a Chartered Surveyor to view the property

A local RICS Surveyor with experience on property in Berkeley will identify structural issues such as pitched roof problems and defective chimney stacks. Interlocking clay tiles are also an area concern found in Gloucestershire.

Conveyancing searches

There are four typical searches recommended by lawyers. These are Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability, Local Authority and Environmental. These review numerous issues including checking if the property is a listed building. Your lawyer could also recommend further searches.

Exchanging contracts

Contracts are exchanged, and the buyer hands over the agreed deposit (in most cases 10% of the property price, but this will be agreed beforehand).

Completion

Usually on a set date, the purchaser will then pick up from the estate agent the keys once the seller's conveyancer certifies that they have received, less the 10% deposit, funds that are remaining.

Help to Buy Conveyancing

Close to 20, 000 home buyers acquired a new home with the aid of Help to Buy already. The Help to Buy scheme enables participating lenders to purchase a guarantee, so they can then offer mortgages of up to 95% loan to value.

For further information, call the Money Advice Service, or your local Help to Buy agent.
