How the Conveyancing Process Works
Deciding on a solicitors quote - Though it is possible to complete the procedure yourself, most of us will not have the time or specialist legal knowledge, and instead go with a solicitor. Ensure that you check the terms for hidden fees before you instruct.
Appointing your solicitor - As soon as you have decided which solicitors quote you want to accept you will have to formally appoint them on the conveyancing on your Atherton transaction. To do this you MUST check any terms and conditions for any concealed costs before you agree to them.
Post-instruction - The draft contract confirms the property price and other information about the sale such as deposits, and is sent to the buyers lawyer from the sellers. After the property information form is received, additional enquires will be raised.
Obtaining a HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey - Buyers are always encouraged to get a survey as it can be made aware of issues such as cavity wall tie failure or sulphate attack.
Atherton searches - There are four standard searches. These are Chancel Liability, Local Authority, Environmental and Drainage and Water. These searches review a wide range of issues, including compulsory purchase orders. Possible additional non-standard searches include a Coal Mining Search.
Exchange of contracts - Contracts are signed and exchanged. Both sides are bound to sell and buy the property.
On Completion - On an agreed date, the balance (less the deposit) of the purchase price delivered to the sellers solicitor, and the purchaser collects keys to the new home.
