How a Aylesford property lawyer Will Carry out the Conveyancing
Choosing your quote
The first step in the legal work is deciding on a conveyancing solicitor to carry out the work. Ensure that you check the small print for additional costs prior to instructing.
Getting a solicitor
First you will need to appoint your lawyer for your Aylesford transaction. You MUST scour the Aylesford solicitors terms accompanying the quote for any hidden conveyancing charges such as costs for SDLT form completion , before approving them.
The draft contract
After you have instructed, your solicitor will communicate with the other side's solicitor to receive and negotiate the draft contract. The draft contract confirms the property price and other information about the sale such as deposits. The final draft is agreed, and dates may be set for exchange and completion.
Obtaining your RICS Home Buyer Survey
A local RICS Surveyor with experience on Aylesford properties will determine any structural issues like bowing walls or penetrating damp. Interlocking clay tiles are also an example of a regional factor in Kent.
Environmental, Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability and Local Authority are the four standard searches which lenders need. These searches cover matters including whether the property is connected to public drains. Additionally, your conveyancing solicitor could also recommend potential additional searches.
Exchange of contracts
Contracts are exchanged, and the buyer pays the agreed deposit (in general ten percent of the price, but this is negotiable).
On the day usually specified in the contract, the buyer can then pick up, usually from the agent, keys to the property after the seller's conveyancer certifies that they have received the money that is due to be paid.
Even though you will now have completed on your purchase your property lawyer has unfinished paperwork to complete including paying the SDLT.
