Conveyancing Process Explained

Selecting a conveyancing quoteThe first step in the procedure is selecting a solicitor to actually carry out the work. It is important to check the terms for any additional costs before you make a final decision.

Appointing a solicitor At the point you have chosen which lawyer you want to complete the legals for your Andover home move you will need to formally appoint them. To do this you MUST scour any terms of engagement for any hidden conveyancing costs like charges for storing deeds after completion, before you approve them.

Draft contracts stageThe lawyer, once instructed, will communicate with the other side's solicitor to receive the draft contract. The contract sets out title deed information, the price, and the deposit. The final version is agreed, and initial dates may be settled for exchange and completion.

Instruct a Home Buyer SurveyA home survey is advised so you can establish if there are any serious defects like Japanese Knotweed and penetrating damp. Thatched roofs are an example of an area issue common in Hampshire.

Andover conveyancing searchesThe routine searches required by mortgage lenders are Chancel Liability, Local Authority, Environmental and Drainage and Water. These cover a broad range of factors, including details of conservation area controls.

Exchange of contractsContracts are exchanged, and the buyer pays the deposit (usually 10% of the sale price, but this is negotiable).

CompletionThe seller's deeds are handed over to the buyer, once payment of the balance (less the deposit) of the purchase price is made. Keys to their purchase are then picked up.

Post CompletionEven though you will now have taken ownership your solicitor still has unfinished work to complete including registering the property at HM Land Registry.
