How the Conveyancing Process is Carried Out
Getting a conveyancing solicitor - Before the process can commence, a conveyancing solicitor must be chosen. Focus on fixed-fee quotes with 'no sale, no fee' protection, but ensure that you check the small print for any additional fees.
Appointing your solicitor - Next you will have to officially instruct your selected conveyancer for your Biggleswade transaction. This first step requires you to go over, agree to and sign the solicitors terms of business.
The initial stages - The purchaser's lawyer negotiates the draft contract with the seller's solicitor. Also pre-contract enquires are made.
Commissioning the RICS HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey - A good local Surveyor with experience of surveying Biggleswade properties will spot potentially expensive structural problems such as bulging walls (sometimes known as a pregnant bump!) and weathered brickwork.
Searches - The common searches usually ordered by conveyancing solicitors are Chancel Liability, Local Authority, Environmental and Drainage and Water. These cover many matters including upcoming changes nearby the property.
Exchange of contracts - When the seller and buyer are satisfied with the contract, both sides sign. The purchaser then pays the agreed ten percent deposit.
Completion - The buyer can then collect the keys to the property after the seller's conveyancing solicitor certifies that they are in receipt of the funds that is due.
