How Your Alfriston Solicitor Will Complete the Conveyancing

  • Finding a quote for your conveyancing - The first step in the legal process is deciding on a conveyancer to carry out the work. Focus on fixed quotes that have a 'no sale, no fee' guarantee, checking the small print for hidden fees.

  • Instructing a solicitor - As soon as you have decided which firms quote you wish to go with, the next step is to formally appoint them. To do this you absolutely must check their terms of engagement for any extra charges like fees for right to buy matters, before you consent to them.

  • Pre-contract - Your conveyancing solicitor will, once instructed, make contact with the solicitor instructed by the other side to negotiate the draft contract. The draft contract specifies the parties buying and selling, the price and other information about the purchase including the deposit. The buyer will have received a formal offer from their lender at this stage of the process.

  • Commissioning your HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey - When buying a property, you will be usually urged to get a survey because it will establish if there are if there are any structural issues e.g. settlement and mould.

  • Searches in Alfriston - The common searches which mortgage lenders require are Chancel Liability, Local Authority, Environmental and Drainage and Water, and they cover issues including changes near the property, such as planning for a supermarket. Additionally, your solicitor may also recommend potential additional searches.

  • Exchanging contracts - Contracts are signed by the parties and exchanged by their conveyancer, legally binding them to sell and buy the property.

  • Completion - Remaining funds, less the deposit paid on exchange, are paid to the seller's conveyancing solicitor, and the buyer gets the keys to the property.
