Conveyancing Process Explained

Focus on fixed quotes with no sale, no fee protection, but be sure to check the small print for any additional hidden fees.
Instructing a solicitor - First thing, you will have to appoint your selected property lawyer for your Biddenham sale and purchase. This will require you to check, approve and sign the solicitors formal small print.
Pre-contract phase - The sellers conveyancing solicitor agrees the draft contract with the buyers conveyancing solicitor. Additionally pre-contract enquires are made. The final draft is agreed by both sides conveyancers, and the date for completion.
Obtaining the HomeBuyer Report - A good local Surveyor with experience of surveying Biddenham properties will spot potentially expensive problems including thermal movement or obvious electrical problems.
Biddenham searches - Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability, Local Authority and Environmental are the common searches generally expected by lenders. These look into a broad range of factors, including checking if the property is a listed building. Furthermore, your solicitor may also recommend additional searches.
Exchange of contracts - When the parties agree, the two sides sign their copies and send them to each other. The buyer then pays the ten percent deposit.
