Conveyancing Process

Finding a quoteWhile you may carry out the process yourself, most of us do not have enough legal experience, choosing instead to instruct a conveyancing solicitor. Be sure to check terms and conditions for additional hidden fees before you decide.

Instructing your chosen solicitor As soon as you have selected the firm you wish to look after the legals on your Ashington transaction it will be necessary to instruct them. You must take care to check the solicitors terms and conditions for any extra conveyancing fees before you agree to them.

Initial phasesOnce you have instructed, the lawyer will make contact with the other sides [2var5] to negotiate the draft contract. This document sets out the property price and other information about the sale such as deposits. Further enquiries will also be raised of the sellers solicitor once the purchasers solicitor has reviewed the completed property information form.

Instructing a Home Buyer ReportProperty purchasers usually urged to get a RICS Survey as it can establish if there are serious structural issues such as missing damp proof connection and defective chimney stacks. Mining related subsidence is a known factor common in Northumberland.

Searches in AshingtonThere are four typical searches. These are Environmental, Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability and Local Authority, and they review matters including planning permission. Additionally, your property lawyer could also recommend potential additional searches.

Exchanging contractsContracts are exchanged, and the buyer hands over the deposit (generally ten percent of the sale price, but this is negotiable).

CompletionThe buyer may then pick up the keys to their new house once the sellers conveyancing solicitor certifies that they have , less the 10% deposit, the money that is due.
