Step-by-step conveyancing checklist in Alvaston

  1. Finding a quote for the legal work - Whilst it is technically possible to perform the conveyancing process yourself, most buyers and sellers do not have the experience or appropriate legal knowledge, and choose to go with a conveyancer. Focus on fixed-fee quotes with a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, checking the terms for hidden fees.

  2. Instructing a solicitor - Once you have decided upon the solicitors conveyancing quote you want to agree to, the next step will be to formally engage their services. This initial step will require you to read carefully, approve and sign the solicitor's formal terms.

  3. The draft contract - Pre-contract enquires are carried out, such as investigating whether the seller may, in fact, sell the property. Additionally the draft contract itself is prepared by the seller's lawyer. The contract is finalised, and an initial date may be set for completion.

  4. Arranging your Survey - A survey is advised in order to spot potentially expensive defects or any potential structural problems including suspected asbestos or dangerous chimney stacks. Derby RICS surveyors in Alvaston will also be conscious of local concerns which may include Darley Dale stone.

  5. Alvaston conveyancing searches - Environmental, Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability and Local Authority are the searches your conveyancing solicitor will usually order, and they look into a broad range of factors, including conservation area restrictions. Your conveyancer may also recommend potential further searches.

  6. Exchange of contracts - Once the purchaser's deposit is arranged, contracts are exchanged. The two sides are now obliged to complete the transaction.

  7. Completion - Usually on a set date, the purchaser can then pick up, usually from the agent, the keys to the property after the seller's conveyancing solicitor certifies receipt of the funds that are due.

  8. After Completion - Now that you have taken possession of the property the conveyancer still has certain formalities to complete e.g. informing the freeholder of completion.
