Property legal process checklist in Babbacombe

  • Choosing a conveyancing quote - The first step in the procedure is picking a conveyancing solicitor to actually carry out the work. Ensure that you check the small print for additional fees prior to instructing.

  • Getting a solicitor - As soon as you have decided which solicitor you want to complete the legals for your Babbacombe move you will need to instruct them. To do this you should always scour any fine print for any additional conveyancing charges like fees for acting on a leasehold matter , before agreeing to them.

  • Post-instruction - Pre-contract enquires are carried out, including things like investigating boundary disputes, and the draft contract itself is prepared by the seller's conveyancing solicitor. Further enquiries will also be raised of the seller after the purchaser's solicitor has reviewed the property information form.

  • Book your Surveyor to inspect the building - Property buyers are invariably advised to get a HomeBuyer Report as it will pinpoint any serious issues, for instance suspected asbestos or dangerous modifications. RICS surveyors conversant with Babbacombe homes will be aware of local issues which include maritime zone weathering.

  • Babbacombe conveyancing searches - Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability, Local Authority and Environmental are the four routine searches. These review a range of issues, including environmental issues. Additionally, your solicitor may also recommend possible additional searches.

  • Exchange of contracts - When the buyer and seller are happy, both sides sign. The buyer then pays via their lawyer the agreed deposit (usually 10% of the property price).

  • Completion - On a set date, the buyer may then pick up the keys to their new home once the seller's conveyancer certifies receipt of the balance (less the deposit) of the purchase price.
