How Your Abbey Wood Solicitor Will Carry out the Conveyancing

  • Deciding on a quote for the conveyancing - The first step in the conveyancing process is getting a property lawyer to carry out the work.

  • Getting a solicitor - As soon as you have identified which conveyancer's quote you would like to accept you will need to formally instruct them. This first step requires you to review, approve and sign the solicitors terms and conditions.

  • The initial phases - After you have instructed, the conveyancer will make contact with the other side's solicitor to receive the draft contract. The draft contract sets out the property price and other information about the sale such as deposits.

  • Arrange the Home Buyers Survey - A home survey is strongly advised in order to identify potentially costly issues, for instance suspected asbestos and unsupported chimney breasts. Parapet wall damp is also an area factor found in Bexley.

  • Conveyancing searches in Abbey Wood - There are four standard searches required by lenders. These are Environmental, Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability and Local Authority, and these cover a range of factors, including whether the property is connected to public drains.

  • Exchanging contracts - Contracts are signed by the seller and purchaser and exchanged by their conveyancing solicitor, legally binding them to complete the transaction.

  • Completion - The funds that are due are wired to the seller's conveyancer, and the buyer receives the keys to their new property.

  • After Completion Issues - Even though you have taken possession of your new home your solicitor still has loose ends to complete such as paying the SDLT.
