Conveyancing process guide

  • Deciding on a conveyancing quote - Before the conveyancing process can get underway, you must choose a conveyancing solicitor. Ensure that you check the small print for any hidden costs before you decide.

  • Getting a solicitor - Before a property solicitor is able to get on with the conveyancing work for your move, it will be necessary to formally instruct them. Give yourself time to ensure you read in detail the small print accompanying the quote for any hidden conveyancing charges like charges for acting on a leasehold property .

  • Pre-contract stage - This document confirms the deposit, the agreed property price and relevant details of title deeds, and is sent to the buyer's property lawyer from the seller's. The final draft is agreed by both sides' conveyancing solicitors, and a day may be agreed to complete.

  • Ordering searches - Environmental, Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability and Local Authority are the four common searches required by lenders. These searches review numerous factors including checking if the property is a listed building.

  • Exchanging contracts - When the lender has formalised their offer and the deposit is ready, contracts are exchanged. The two parties are now obligated to go through with the transaction.

  • Completion - The balance of the funds that are due is transferred to the seller's conveyancer, and the buyer collects the keys to their new house, with the title deeds and other documentation.

  • After Completion Formalities - Despite the fact that you have completed your Ackworth conveyancer still has unfinished work to complete e.g. sending copy title deeds to your lender.
