Conveyancing Process Explained

  1. Obtaining your conveyancing quote - Before the process will start, you must find a conveyancing solicitor. Focus on fixed-fee quotes that have a 'no sale, no fee' guarantee, but ensure that you check the small print for any hidden additional fees.

  2. Appointing a solicitor - When you have decided upon the firms quote you want to go with, the next step will be to formally engage their services on the legals on your Axbridge property sale or purchase. You should scour the Axbridge solicitors fine print for further costs e.g. costs for bank TTs , before consenting to them.

  3. Post-instruction stage - The lawyer will contact the other side's solicitor to receive the draft contract. This document collates the purchase price, details from the seller's title deeds, and the identities of the parties involved.

  4. Instruct your Qualified Surveyor to examine the property - A home survey is necessary to help identify problems e.g. bulging walls or problems with a flue. Somerset surveyors conversant with Axbridge will be aware of regional things including interlocking clay tiles.

  5. Searches - There are four typical searches expected by lenders. These are Local Authority, Environmental, Drainage and Water, and Chancel Liability. These searches investigate issues including enforcement actions for a breach of planning permission. Possible further non-standard searches for property in Axbridge can include a Tin Search.

  6. Exchange of contracts - When the deposit is ready and the terms of the contract are agreed, contracts are exchanged. The two sides are now obliged to sell and buy the property.

  7. On Completion - The buyer may then collect from the agent the keys to their new home once the seller's solicitor has confirmed that they have received the balance of the sale price.
