Finding a quote
The first step in the legal process is finding a conveyancing solicitor to actually carry out the work. Focus on fixed quotes that have 'no sale, no fee' protection, but ensure that you check the terms for additional hidden fees.
Instructing a solicitor
Once you have identified the lawyer you want to look after the conveyancing for your Albany Park sale or purchase you will need to formally appoint them. This first step will require you to go over, agree to and sign the solicitors small print.
Enquires are made, which can include a preliminary investigation of title, and the draft contract itself will be drawn up. After the property information questionnaire (PIQ) is received, further enquiries will also be raised of the seller's lawyer.

Searches in Albany Park
Local Authority, Environmental, Drainage and Water, and Chancel Liability are the searches a solicitor orders in most cases. These searches review a range of issues, including environmental issues.
When the parties are satisfied with the final contract, both sides sign their copies and deliver them to each other. The buyer then transfers through their solicitor the agreed deposit (in most cases ten percent of the price).
On an agreed date, the buyer may then collect from the agent the keys to the property after the seller's solicitor has confirmed that they have received the money that is due, less the deposit already paid.
Immediately after you have the keys, the conveyancing solicitor still has certain tasks to complete such as registering the property in your name.
