The conveyancing process

  1. Getting a solicitors quote - Choosing the preferred option of the agent can be costly, so many shop online to find a better-priced conveyancing solicitor. Find fixed quotes with no move, no fee protection, checking terms and conditions for additional hidden fees.

  2. Engaging a solicitor - When you have identified the solicitor you wish to manage the formalities for your West Dean transaction it will be necessary to appoint them. You must always scour their fine print for any further costs such as charges for acting on a leasehold purchase , before consenting to them.

  3. The initial stages - After you have instructed, your conveyancing solicitor will contact the [2var3] instructed by the other side to receive and negotiate the draft contract. This document sets out information about the transaction itself including the sale price and the deposit and details of the two parties. Further enquiries will also be raised of the seller after the purchasers conveyancing solicitor has read through the completed property information form.

  4. Booking the RICS Home Buyer Survey - Buyers are invariably recommended to get a RICS Survey as it can determine if there are any structural problems such as thermal movement and sulphate attack. Interlocking clay tiles are a local problem found in Gloucestershire.

  5. Carrying out searches - Chancel Liability, Local Authority, Environmental and Drainage and Water are the four standard searches generally recommended by conveyancing solicitors. These review a range of factors, including checking if the property is a listed building. Potential further searches in West Dean can include a Gypsum Search.

  6. Exchanging contracts - When the seller and purchaser agree on a final draft, both sides sign their copies. The buyer then hands over the agreed deposit (usually 0.1 of the property price, but this will be agreed pre-exchange).

  7. Completion - On the specified date, the balance of the sale price, less the deposit delivered to the sellers solicitor, and the purchaser collects keys to the property.

  8. After Completion Legal Work - Despite the fact that you have completed your West Dean conveyancer has unfinished work to complete such as sending deeds to your lender.
