The legal process of buying and selling a house typically takes between one and four months. The first thing we'll do is to provide you with a detailed estimate of all the costs associated with the legal side of buying or selling your home. Tell us about the property and we'll give you a quote now.
After you've instructed In-Deed to manage your conveyancing, the lawyers carry out all the necessary checks and searches required to prepare contracts for exchange.
Exchanging contracts creates a legally binding commitment between buyer and seller for the sale of the property. The completion date is set and there's no backing out after this point.
The hard bit is done and the legal side of things should proceed readily from here. There may be some details to finalise, but you should now have time to arrange your move.
This is the moment you've been waiting for. Your lawyer will confirm that the money has changed hands, ownership of the property has passed from seller to buyer and the keys can be handed over.
While you're enjoying your new home, your lawyer takes care of the final details. We make sure that the change of ownership is properly registered and that any outstanding mortgages have been repaid so that everything's in order.
