How a property lawyer Will Complete the Conveyancing in Leigh

  • Selecting a quote for your conveyancing - The first step in the conveyancing process is deciding on a conveyancing solicitor to actually carry out the work.

  • Getting your chosen solicitor - Before your selected lawyer can start the legal process for your Leigh move you will need to formally appoint them. To do this you must take care to scour any terms accompanying the quote for any hidden fees before you sign them.

  • Draft contracts - The conveyancer will, once instructed, communicate with the other sides [2var5] to receive the draft contract. The contract collates information about the transaction itself including the sale price and the deposit and details of the two parties. The final version is agreed by the buyers and sellers solicitors, and preliminary dates may be set for exchange and completion.

  • Carrying out your HomeBuyer Report - A good local Surveyor with experience of surveying property in Leigh will identify problems e.g. unsafe attic conversions and obvious electrical problems.

  • Leigh searches - Local Authority, Environmental, Drainage and Water, and Chancel Liability are the typical searches recommended by property lawyers. These searches cover many issues including compulsory purchase orders. Additionally, your conveyancing solicitor may also recommend possible further searches.

  • Exchanging contracts - When the deposit is ready and the terms of the contract are agreed, contracts are exchanged. The buyer and seller are now obligated to sell and buy the property.

  • On Completion - On the day usually specified in the contract, the buyer can then collect the keys to their new house once the sellers solicitor has confirmed that they have received any remaining funds due to be paid.
