How Your Thornbury property lawyer Will Complete the Conveyancing

Getting a conveyancing solicitorWhilst you can do the legal process yourself, the majority of us do not have the time, experience or legal expertise to do this, choosing instead to instruct a property lawyer. It is important to check the terms for additional costs before you decide.

Instructing a solicitor First you must officially instruct a solicitor for your Thornbury sale and purchase. You MUST check the Thornbury solicitors small print for further conveyancing costs e.g. charges for bank TTs (money transfers) , before signing them.

The pre-contract stageYour lawyer will, once instructed, communicate with the other sides [2var5] to receive and negotiate the draft contract. The draft contract specifies the two parties, the deposit, details of title deeds, and the purchase price. Further enquiries will also be raised once the buyers solicitor has checked the property information form.

Getting a RICS SurveyHome buyers are usually recommended to get a HomeBuyer Report because it will identify potentially costly structural issues, for instance wet rot and penetrating damp. Interlocking clay tiles are also a known local thing found in Gloucestershire.

Thornbury conveyancing searchesEnvironmental, Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability and Local Authority are the four routine searches usually required by lenders. These review a range of factors, including checking if the property is a listed building. Your conveyancing solicitor could also recommend further searches.

Exchanging contracts When the seller and purchaser are happy with the contract, the two sides sign their copies and send them to each other. The buyer then transfers the agreed deposit (usually ten percent of the property price, but this will be agreed pre-exchange).

CompletionUsually on a set date, the purchaser may then pick up from the agent keys to their purchase after the sellers conveyancing solicitor certifies receipt of the funds that are due.

Purchasing with Help to Buy

Almost 20, 000 home buyers purchased their new property under this scheme since the launch. The Help to Buy mortgage guarantee scheme assists home movers with at least a 5% deposit. To claim this scheme, the property needs to be your main residence (not Buy to Let), you cannot have interest in any other property, and the mortgage must be repayment (not interest only) The highest price for a property purchased under the scheme is £600, 000.

For further information on Help to Buy, contact the Money Advice Service, or your local Help to Buy agent.
