Over the last four years, house prices in Gloucestershire have risen. In October 2013, the Land Registry reported purchased property with an average of £174, 516.

Property prices are expected to continue to rise this year, by between 5% and 8%. The Help to Buy scheme and the availability of cheap credit are among the causes of the buoyant property market. Despite these predictions, for experts, a slowdown is expected within 24-36 months.

The conveyancing process in Hanham - a useful guide

  1. Deciding on a conveyancing quote - Before the legal process will start, you will need to pick a property lawyer.

  2. Engaging a solicitor - At the point you have identified which conveyancing quote you want to agree to the first thing to do is formally instruct them to carry out the legals for your Hanham move. To do this you absolutely must check any terms of business for any hidden conveyancing costs such as costs for acting on a leasehold purchase , before signing them.

  3. The pre-contract stage - The contract sets out details of the parties, title deed information, and the property price, and is sent by the sellers solicitor to the buyers. The final version is agreed by the buyers and sellers lawyers, and a date may be set for completion.

  4. Instruct a RICS Surveyor to inspect the home - A local RICS Surveyor with experience of surveying property in Hanham will spot any structural issues like missing damp proof connection and defective chimney stacks.

  5. Hanham conveyancing searches - Local Authority, Environmental, Drainage and Water, and Chancel Liability are the four standard searches, and these cover matters including planning permission. Additionally, your lawyer may also advise on additional searches.

  6. Exchanging contracts - Contracts are exchanged, and the buyer pays the agreed deposit (in most cases 0.1 of the sale price).

  7. Completion - On the specified date, the money that is due, less the deposit already paid to the sellers conveyancer, and the purchaser collects the keys to the property.

  8. After Completion - At the point you have completed, the conveyancer now has unfinished work to finish including sending deeds to your lender.
