Step-by-step conveyancing guide for Stockport houses

Deciding on a conveyancing solicitor

Firstly, choose a conveyancer based on the factors that matter to you. Do not focus on an attractive headline fee. Many lower quotes have hidden additional fees in the small print.

Instructing your solicitor

At the point you have decided which solicitor you would like to do the legal procedure for your Stockport sale or purchase you will need to formally engage their services. You should always check the fine print accompanying the quote for any hidden conveyancing costs before you consent to them.

Pre-contract

The property lawyer will, once instructed, communicate with the other side's solicitor to receive and negotiate the draft contract. The contract specifies the sale price, identities of the two parties, deposits, and title deed information. The final version is agreed, and dates may be set for exchange and completion.

Arrange a RICS Building Survey

A home survey is imperative so you can be made aware of potentially costly problems e.g. ground heave and dangerous modifications.

Searches in Stockport

The standard searches that mortgage lenders will request are Chancel Liability, Local Authority, Environmental and Drainage and Water, and they investigate factors including conservation area restrictions. Further searches for homes in Stockport may include a Coal Mining Search.

Exchange of contracts

Contracts are signed by the seller and buyer and exchanged by their conveyancing solicitor, binding them to go through with the transaction.

Completion

Less the ten percent deposit, the money that is due is paid to the seller's conveyancer, and the buyer receives the keys to their new property.

After Completion

Now you have taken ownership your solicitor still has additional tasks to complete including getting the transfer stamped.

Help to Buy Conveyancing

To be eligible for this scheme, the property will need to be your main residence and you may not have an interest in another property.
