Conveyancing Process Explained

Finding a conveyancing quote

Although it is possible to carry out the conveyancing process yourself, most buyers and sellers have neither the technical expertise nor the time, opting instead to select a conveyancer.

Look for fixed-fee quotes that have no move, no fee protection, but be sure to check the small print for hidden costs.

Instructing a solicitor

At the point you have identified which conveyancing quote you wish to agree to the first step is to formally appoint them.

To do this you should thoroughly scour the fine print for any hidden charges before you sign them.

Pre-contract

Enquires are made, such as an initial investigation of title, and the draft contract itself will be drawn up by the sellers solicitor.

Commissioning a HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey

Buyers are always encouraged to get a RICS Survey as it will establish if there are potentially costly structural problems, for instance spalled brickwork or obvious electrical problems. Greater Manchester surveyors experienced in Castleton properties will also be knowledgeable of things like peak district national park rules.

Carrying out searches

There are four standard searches. These are Environmental, Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability and Local Authority. These investigate issues including conservation area restrictions.

Potential further searches for homes in Castleton include a Coal Mining Search (Con29M) Search.

Exchanging contracts

After the lender has formalised their offer and the deposit is ready, contracts are exchanged. The buyer and seller are now obliged to complete the transaction.

On Completion

The balance of the funds that are due is delivered to the sellers conveyancer, and the buyer receives the keys to the property.
