The Conveyancing Process
|Choosing a quote for the conveyancing||Before the conveyancing process can get underway, a solicitor will need to be found.|
|Getting your selected solicitor||As soon as you have identified which property lawyer you would like to do the legals on your Benton home move you must formally appoint them. To do this you MUST scour the terms of engagement for any extra conveyancing charges before you sign them.|
|Initial stages||After you have instructed, the solicitor will contact the solicitor acting for the other side to receive the draft contract. The contract sets out the sale price, identities of the two parties, deposits, and title deed information.|
|Commissioning a RICS HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey||A home survey is necessary to be able to be made aware of if there are any structural issues, for instance bowing walls or weathered brickwork.|
|Benton searches||Chancel Liability, Local Authority, Environmental and Drainage and Water are the basic searches usually required by mortgage lenders, and they look into many factors including enforcement actions for a breach of planning permission.|
|Exchanging contracts||When the buyer and seller agree on a final draft, the two sides sign copies and they are sent to the other party. The buyer then transfers the agreed 10% deposit.|
|Completion||The seller's deeds are delivered to the buyer, after payment of the balance of the sale price is made. The keys are then collected.|

To claim the Help to Buy schemes, the property will need to be your main residence (not Buy to Let), you cannot have interest in any other property, and the mortgage must be repayment (not interest only). £600, 000 is the highest property value available under the scheme.
