Living in Abingdon
Abingdon is situated in Oxfordshire in South East England and is about 6 miles (km) from the county administrative centre of Oxford. Local pubs include the Punchbowl, the King's Head & Bell, the Grapes, the Crown & Thistle and the Narrows. For essentials, local shopping includes Bartlett Butchers and Greggs bakery at 7 Bury St. Ashmolean Museum, Didcot Railway Centre and Museum of Oxford are often listed among local attractions. Local food and veg buffs should head down to Abingdon Farmers Market at Abingdon, Oxfordshire, OX14.
Abingdon's local residents may also frequent at the local Waitrose on Abbey Close. The value of the Waitrose brand is more than a shop where you buy groceries. Living near a Waitrose can boost the sale price of your house by around twenty five percent. Some estate agents may be unconvinced by this, yet it is something to be aware of when purchasing in Abingdon.
The Sale and Purchase Conveyancing Steps
Obtaining a quote for your conveyancing
Before the procedure can begin, a property lawyer must be found. Be sure to check the terms and conditions for additional hidden fees before you decide.
Instructing your chosen solicitor
As soon as you have worked out which company's conveyancing quote you want to go ahead with the first step is to instruct them. You should check their fine print for any additional conveyancing costs like charges for obtaining leasehold management information on leasehold sale , before signing them.
Following instruction, the solicitor will contact the other side's solicitor to negotiate the draft contract. This document confirms the deposit, the agreed property price and relevant details of title deeds.
Arranging your Survey
A home survey is required in order to be made aware of potentially costly structural problems such as bulging walls or potential building regulations breaches. Oxfordshire chartered surveyors covering Abingdon property will also be know about issues which include clay soil.
Local Authority, Environmental, Drainage and Water, and Chancel Liability are the four standard searches recommended by conveyancing solicitors, and they investigate issues including details of conservation area controls.
Exchange of contracts
Contracts are exchanged, and the buyer pays the deposit (usually ten percent of the sale price, but this will be agreed pre-exchange).
Less the ten percent deposit, the money that is due is transferred to the seller's solicitor, and the purchaser receives the keys to their new property.
Abingdon Help to Buy Conveyancing
