The conveyancing process in Forest of Dean

  • Deciding on a solicitor - Firstly, pick a conveyancing solicitor based on the factors that matter to you. Look for quotes with a 'no sale, no fee' guarantee, but ensure that you check the terms and conditions for hidden additional fees.

  • Engaging a solicitor - As soon as you have identified which conveyancer you would like to complete the conveyancing for your Forest of Dean sale or purchase it will be necessary to formally appoint them. To do this you should scour any terms of business for any further costs e.g. charges for bank TTs , before agreeing to them.

  • Get a Surveyor to carry out a survey at your new home - An experienced Surveyor with experience on property in Forest of Dean will pinpoint defects e.g. flat roof problems and obvious legal breaches.

  • On Completion - On an agreed date, the money that is due to be paid to the seller's conveyancing solicitor, and the purchaser gets the keys to their new property.
