How a Solicitor Will Complete the Conveyancing in Bedminster
Obtaining your quote
The first step in the process is finding a conveyancing solicitor to carry out the work. Find fixed quotes that have 'no move, no fee' protection, but check the small print for any hidden fees.
Instructing a solicitor
First you must officially appoint your preferred conveyancer for your Bedminster move. To do this you must scour the solicitors fine print for further conveyancing charges, for instance charges for stamp duty land tax form completion , before approving them.
Draft contracts stage
The seller's conveyancing solicitor agrees the draft contract with the buyer's conveyancer. Additionally pre-contract enquires are sent. The purchaser will be in receipt a mortgage offer from the lender by this point.
Get a Building Survey
Purchasers are usually recommended to get a HomeBuyer Report because it will spot any possible defects including settlement or potential planning breaches. Portland stone weathering can be a known area concern found in Bristol.
Local Authority, Environmental, Drainage and Water, and Chancel Liability are the four common searches expected by mortgage lenders, and they look into a range of factors, including land contamination. In addition, your solicitor may also advise on potential additional searches.
Exchange of contracts
When the parties agree, the two sides sign copies and they are sent to the other party. The buyer then transfers through their conveyancing solicitor the deposit (generally 10% of the price).
The money that is due, less the deposit already paid, is transferred to the seller's conveyancer, and the buyer receives the keys, with title deeds.
Help to Buy in Bedminster
Over 17, 000 purchasers bought their house with the help of the Government's Help to Buy scheme in its first nine months. There are two Help to Buy schemes, the Equity Loan and Mortgage Guarantee.
