How a Alresford property lawyer Will Carry out the Conveyancing
Choosing your quote
Firstly, pick a solicitor based on your priorities. Look for fixed-fee quotes that have a 'no sale, no fee' guarantee, but ensure that you check terms and conditions for any hidden fees.
Appointing a solicitor
When you have chosen which lawyer you would like to complete the legal process for your Alresford move you will have to formally engage their services. To do this you need to check the small print for any additional costs e.g. fees for dealing with a mortgage lender, before you consent to them.
The initial phases
The purchaser's lawyer negotiates the draft contract with the seller's solicitor, and enquires are undertaken. The final draft is agreed by both sides' conveyancing solicitors, and preliminary dates may also be agreed for exchange and completion.
Get the Home Buyers Survey
A survey is vital to help determine any issues, for instance subsidence or boundary issues. Thatched roofs can be a possible local thing in Hampshire.
Alresford conveyancing searches
The standard searches are Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability, Local Authority and Environmental, and they investigate matters including environmental issues.
Exchange of contracts
When the buyer and seller agree on a final draft, both sides sign it. The buyer then pays the agreed deposit (in general ten percent of the property price).
On a set day, the buyer will then collect from the estate agent keys to their purchase once the seller's solicitor confirms receipt of the balance of the funds that are due.
The Help to Buy scheme
The Help to Buy scheme assists first-time buyers with at least a 5% deposit to purchase a home valued at up to £600, 000. To be eligible for Help to Buy, the property needs to be your main residence (not Buy to Let), you cannot have interest in any other property, and the mortgage must be repayment (not interest only) A maximum value of £600, 000 exists for houses covered by the scheme.
