Choosing your conveyancing quote
Going with the agents' preferred choice may not be the best option, so many people find a better price online. Do not focus on the cheap headline fee, as many budget quotes can have hidden additional fees in the small print.
Instructing a solicitor
When you have decided which solicitors quote you want to agree to, the next stage is to instruct them to complete the conveyancing for your Aldridge home move. Allocate time to scour any terms of business for any hidden costs like charges for filling in a standard SDLT form .
Pre-contract enquires are made, including things like looking into rights of way, and the draft contract itself is prepared by the seller's conveyancer. The contract is finalised, and an initial date may be set to complete.
Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability, Local Authority and Environmental are the normal searches usually ordered by lawyers. These searches investigate matters including conservation area restrictions. Additional searches in Aldridge can include a Limestone Search.
Exchange of contracts
Contracts are exchanged, and the buyer transfers through their conveyancing solicitor the deposit (generally 10% of the property price).
The purchaser may then collect from the agent the keys after the seller's lawyer has confirmed that they have received the money that is due, less the deposit already paid.
