Step-by-step conveyancing checklist

Getting a conveyancing quoteBefore the conveyancing process can commence, a conveyancing solicitor must be chosen. Focus on quotes that have no move, no fee protection, but be sure to check the terms for any hidden fees.

Appointing a solicitor Before a conveyancing firm can get underway with the legal process, it will be necessary to appoint them. You must scour the terms of engagement accompanying the quote for any hidden conveyancing charges , for instance charges for filling in an SDLT form , before consenting to them.

Drafting contracts stagePre-contract enquires are made, which include investigating boundary disputes. Also the draft contract itself will be prepared. The contract is finalised, and a preliminary date may also be agreed on which to complete.

Carrying out your RICS Home Buyer SurveyA survey is crucial so you can establish if there are potentially costly structural problems e.g. potential asbestos and potential listed building breaches.

Blakeney searchesThere are four standard searches that lenders will require. These are Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability, Local Authority and Environmental. These investigate numerous factors including land contamination. Your lawyer may also advise on possible additional searches.

Exchange of contractsContracts are signed by the seller and buyer and exchanged by their lawyer, binding them to complete the transaction.

On CompletionOn the day usually specified in the contract, the money that is due, less the deposit already paid to the sellers conveyancer, and the purchaser gets the keys to the property.

Help to Buy Conveyancing

The Help to Buy scheme is intended to help first-time buyers and home movers who have saved a 5% deposit. To qualify for Help to Buy, the property being acquired will need to be not Buy to Let, and the mortgage must be repayment (not interest-only). £600, 000 is the upper limit for homes bought under the scheme.
