How Your Accrington property lawyer Will Complete the Conveyancing
Choosing a solicitor's quote - Before the process will commence, you must choose a property lawyer. Find fixed quotes with a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, but be sure to check terms and conditions for additional fees.
Instructing your chosen solicitor - At the point you have decided upon the property lawyer you wish to manage the legal procedure for your Accrington sale or purchase you will have to instruct them. You MUST thoroughly scour the solicitors terms of engagement for any concealed costs before you agree to them.
The initial stages - This document specifies information about the transaction itself including the sale price and the deposit and details of the two parties, and is sent by the seller's conveyancer to the buyer's. Following receipt of the property information form, further enquiries will also be raised of the seller's lawyer.
Instruct a Qualified Surveyor to survey the building - A competent local RICS Surveyor with experience on property in Accrington will spot any problems such as ground heave or potential listed building breaches. Lancashire chartered surveyors conversant with Accrington will also be well informed of local problems which include mining related subsidence.
Searches in Accrington - Environmental, Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability and Local Authority are the four typical searches. These searches cover matters including whether the property is connected to public drains. Your conveyancing solicitor could also recommend further searches.
Exchange of contracts - Contracts are exchanged, and the buyer pays the deposit (usually 10% of the property price, but this is negotiable).
On Completion - Usually on a set date, the deeds are delivered to the buyer, once payment of the money that is due, less the deposit already paid is made. The keys can then be collected.
