How the Conveyancing Process is Carried Out
Choosing a quote for the legal work - While it is possible to undertake the legal process yourself, the vast majority of us do not have the property legal knowledge or time, and opt to go for a conveyancer. Find fixed quotes that have a 'no sale, no fee' guarantee, but ensure that you check the small print for additional costs.
Appointing your chosen solicitor - Before a solicitor can move forward the conveyancing work for your move, you must officially appoint them. To do this you absolutely must scour any terms of business for further conveyancing charges like costs for acting on a leasehold purchase , before consenting to them.
Pre-contract stage - The seller's property lawyer agrees the draft contract with the buyer's conveyancer, and pre-contract enquires are made. Further enquiries will also be raised of the seller's conveyancing solicitor once the buyer's conveyancing solicitor has reviewed the property information questionnaire (PIQ).
Carrying out your Home Buyers Survey - This are strongly advised in order to establish if there are any serious defects including flashing problems or leaks. Interlocking clay tiles are also a local factor found in Gloucestershire.
Searches - Local Authority, Environmental, Drainage and Water, and Chancel Liability are the four standard searches, and these cover many factors including details of conservation area controls. Your conveyancing solicitor could also recommend possible further searches.
Exchanging contracts - Contracts are signed by the buyer and seller and exchanged by their conveyancing solicitor, binding them to go through with the transaction.
Completion - Usually on a set date, the funds that are due transferred to the seller's lawyer, and the purchaser collects the keys to the property.
After Completion - Once you have moved, your solicitor will still have additional tasks to undertake including storing the deeds.
