How the Conveyancing Process Works

  1. Getting a conveyancer or solicitor - While it is possible to perform the conveyancing process yourself, the vast majority of people have neither the technical expertise nor the time, and instead instruct a legal professional. Focus on fixed-fee quotes with no move, no fee protection, but ensure that you check terms and conditions for any additional hidden fees.

  2. Engaging your solicitor - Before anything can happen you will have to formally appoint your selected solicitor for your Westhoughton sale and purchase. To do this you need to be careful check the solicitors terms of business accompanying the quote for any hidden charges before you consent to them.

  3. The pre-contract phase - Enquires are undertaken, which can include investigating rights of way over the property, and the draft contract itself is prepared by the sellers solicitor. Additional enquires will also be raised once the buyers solicitor has checked the property information form.

  4. Get a Qualified Surveyor to carry out a survey at the building - Property buyers are strongly urged to get a RICS HomeBuyer Report of Building Survey as it can identify any serious issues such as missing damp proof connection or condensation problems.

  5. Conveyancing searches - The standard searches ordered by conveyancing solicitors are Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability, Local Authority and Environmental. These searches investigate a range of factors, including planning permission. Potential additional non-standard searches for houses in Westhoughton can include a Coal Mining Search.

  6. Exchange of contracts - Contracts are signed by the seller and buyer and exchanged by their solicitor, binding them to go through with the transaction.

  7. Completion - On the specified date, the buyer may then collect keys to the new home after the sellers conveyancing solicitor confirms that they are in receipt of the balance of the sale price, less the deposit.

  8. Post Completion - Although you have now taken possession of your new home your solicitor has certain formalities to complete e.g. registering the property.
