The Conveyancing Process

Deciding on a quote

First, choose a property lawyer based on what matters most for you. Be sure to check terms and conditions for hidden costs before you instruct.

Instructing a solicitor

Before your chosen property solicitor is able to start the conveyancing procedure, you must appoint them. You MUST scour the solicitors terms and conditions for any extra conveyancing charges before you sign them.

Draft contracts

Pre-contract enquires are made, which include a preliminary investigation of title. Additionally the draft contract itself is drawn up by the seller's conveyancing solicitor. The final draft is agreed, and initial dates may be set for exchange and completion.

Book your RICS Surveyor to inspect the property

This are required in order to determine serious defects e.g. ground heave and boundary issues.

Allendale conveyancing searches

There are four standard searches expected by mortgage lenders. These are Environmental, Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability and Local Authority. These cover matters including enforcement actions for a breach of planning permission.

Exchange of contracts

When the seller and buyer are satisfied with the final contract, the two sides sign and deliver them to each other. The purchaser then hands over the agreed deposit (generally 10% of the sale price).

Completion

The deeds are handed over to the buyer, once payment of any remaining money due is made. The keys are then collected.

Post Completion Issues

Although you will now have taken possession of the property your Allendale property lawyer still has unfinished paperwork to complete such as notifying the freeholder (if leasehold).

The Help to Buy scheme

The Government's Help to Buy scheme aims to support first-time buyers with a deposit of at least 5%. To qualify for the Government's Help to Buy scheme, the home must be not Buy to Let, and you must not have an interest in any other property.
