Ascot Solicitors Legal Fees
Some solicitors sneak additional charges in their terms of engagement. Very often these extra fees may be discernible from the beginning and should therefore be shown in the conveyancing quote.
Check the small print for specific items like fees for dealing with your lender or for obtaining leasehold management information on leasehold sale. In-Deed's fixed quotes mean no additional fees to worry about for your Ascot sale or purchase.

The conveyancing process for Ascot houses - a useful guide
|Obtaining a solicitor's quote||First, find a conveyancer based on the factors that matter to you. Look for fixed quotes with 'no move, no fee' protection, but check terms and conditions for hidden additional fees.|
|Getting your chosen solicitor||When you have worked out which company you want to manage the legals on your Ascot sale or purchase it will be necessary to instruct them. To do this you need to check any fine print for supplementary conveyancing charges, for instance charges for storing your deeds, before you approve them.|
|The initial stages||Pre-contract enquires are made, including things like an initial investigation of title. Additionally the draft contract itself will be drawn up by the seller's conveyancer. At this stage, the purchaser should get the formal mortgage offer at this point.|
|Obtaining the RICS Survey||A survey is strongly advised in order to be made aware of serious defects including Japanese Knotweed or penetrating damp.|
|Conveyancing searches in Ascot||Environmental, Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability and Local Authority are the four normal searches. These review many matters including conservation area restrictions.|
|Exchanging contracts||Contracts are exchanged, and the purchaser pays the deposit (in most cases 10% of the price, but this will be agreed pre-exchange).|
|Completion||The deeds are handed over to the buyer, once payment of the balance of the funds that are due is made. The keys are picked up.|
Help to Buy
This programme aims to help home movers and first-time buyers with at least a 5% deposit. To claim Help to Buy, the property will need to be not Buy to Let, and you must not have an interest in any other property.
