Conveyancing Process Explained
Choosing a quote for your legal work
The first step in the legal process is finding a property lawyer to actually carry out the work.
Do not focus on the cheap headline fee. Many cheap quotes can have additional fees in the terms and conditions.
Engaging a solicitor
Once you have identified the company you wish to look after the conveyancing on your Ashtead move you must formally engage their services.
You MUST check the solicitors small print for any further fees like fees for bank TTs , before consenting to them.
The purchasers solicitor agrees the draft contract with the sellers conveyancer. In addition preliminary enquires.
Further enquiries will also be raised once the buyers solicitor has read through the property information form.
Obtain a Home Buyers Survey
A local Surveyor with experience on property in Ashtead will spot any problems, for instance wood boring insects and furniture beetle. House longhorn beetle is one of a number of a issue common in Surrey.
Conveyancing searches in Ashtead
The routine searches are Chancel Liability, Local Authority, Environmental and Drainage and Water, and they look into matters including environmental issues.
Exchange of contracts
Contracts are signed by the two parties and exchanged by their conveyancer, binding them to go through with the sale and purchase.
Completion will happen when the sellers conveyancing solicitor confirms receipt of the money that is due, less the deposit already paid. The purchaser may then pick up the keys to their new property.
After Completion Loose Ends
Now that you have moved, a property lawyer will still have some admin to finish e.g. obtaining a transfer stamp.
Buying with Help to Buy
In order to be eligible for this programme, the property needs to be a shared ownership or shared equity purchase, or a second home. £600, 000 is the highest property value available under the scheme.
Contact the Money Advice Service, or your local Help to Buy agent for further information regarding Help to Buy.
