Residential conveyancing procedure guide for Amersham property

  • Choosing a solicitor's quote - Choosing the agent's recommendation can be expensive, so many do more research to find conveyancing solicitor. Focus on fixed quotes that have a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, checking the terms and conditions for hidden additional fees.

  • Engaging a solicitor - Before a conveyancer is able to start the conveyancing procedure, you will need to formally appoint them. To do this you must check their small print accompanying the quote for any hidden fees like charges for acting on a new build property, before you sign them.

  • Post-instruction stage - Your lawyer will make contact with the other side's solicitor to receive the draft contract. The draft contract sets out details of prices, the two parties, other information about the transaction such as deposits, and information from the seller's title deeds.

  • Arrange your Surveyor to examine the property - Property buyers are invariably urged to get a RICS Survey as it can spot if there are any structural issues like lack of internal support or potential planning breaches. Local surveyors experienced in Amersham will, in addition, be conscious of local issues including witchert.

  • Searches - Chancel Liability, Local Authority, Environmental and Drainage and Water are the four routine searches usually ordered by conveyancers. These cover a broad range of factors, including compulsory purchase orders. Your property lawyer may also recommend possible additional searches.

  • Exchanging contracts - Contracts are signed by the parties and exchanged by their solicitor, binding them to go through with the sale and purchase.

  • Completion - Completion occurs when the seller's conveyancing solicitor confirms that they have any remaining money due. The buyer may then pick up the keys to their new home.
