Conveyancing checklist

  • Deciding on your conveyancing quote - Before the legal process can get underway, you will need to pick a legal professional. Remember to check the terms and conditions for any hidden fees before you instruct.

  • Appointing your preferred solicitor - Your chosen Altrincham conveyancer will now take you through the formal appointment process. You need to thoroughly scour any terms of engagement for any hidden conveyancing costs before you approve them.

  • Pre-contract stage - The contract collates details of the parties, title deed information, and the property price, and is sent to the buyer's lawyer from the seller's. Following receipt of the property information form, further enquiries will also be raised of the seller.

  • Commissioning a Home Survey - A home survey is necessary in order to establish if there are problems like wood worm or penetrating damp.

  • Searches - The typical searches usually required by lenders are Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability, Local Authority and Environmental. These searches cover many matters including whether the property is connected to public drains. Your lawyer could also recommend additional searches.

  • Exchange of contracts - When the seller and buyer agree on a final draft, both sides sign it and they are sent to the other party. The buyer then pays via their conveyancing solicitor the deposit (generally 10% of the price).

  • Completion - On the specified date, the purchaser can then collect keys to the new home once the seller's conveyancer certifies that they have received remaining funds, less the deposit paid on exchange.
