How Your Alford Solicitor Will Complete the Conveyancing

  • Getting a quote for the conveyancing - The first step in the legal process is deciding on a legal professional to actually carry out the work. Focus on fixed-fee quotes with 'no move, no fee' protection, but check the small print for additional costs.

  • Engaging a solicitor - Before a property solicitor can commence the legal work for your move you must officially appoint them. This first step will require you to check carefully, agree to and sign the solicitors terms.

  • After you have instructed - The draft contract collates 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 solicitor to the buyer's. The final draft is agreed, and initial dates may be settled for exchange and completion.

  • Instruct your Qualified Surveyor to carry out a survey at the building - Property buyers are typically encouraged to get a RICS HomeBuyer Report of Building Survey as it will spot potentially expensive problems or any potential problems such as lack of internal support or dangerous chimney stacks. Interlocking clay tiles are a regional problem in Lincolnshire.

  • Searches in Alford - Chancel Liability, Local Authority, Environmental and Drainage and Water are the four routine searches generally recommended by solicitors. These searches review numerous issues including enforcement actions for a breach of planning permission. Your solicitor may also recommend additional searches.

  • Exchange of contracts - Once the lender has formalised their offer and the deposit is ready, contracts are exchanged. Both sides are now bound by law to go through with the transaction.

  • Completion - On the specified date, the deeds are delivered to the buyer, once payment of any remaining funds due to be paid is made. The keys to the property are then collected.
