How the Conveyancing Process is Completed

Finding a solicitors quote

Before the procedure can get underway, you will need to pick a conveyancing solicitor.

Do not rely on a low headline fee, as many cheaper quotes may have additional costs in the small print.

Appointing your preferred solicitor

Before a property solicitor can get on with the conveyancing work, it will be necessary to instruct them.

You should always scour their terms of engagement for any additional costs e.g. charges for acting on a leasehold matter , before agreeing to them.

Draft contracts stage

Enquires are made, which can include an initial examination of title documents to determine if it is free from defects. Also the draft contract itself will be prepared by the sellers solicitor.

Commissioning a HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey

A good local RICS Surveyor with experience on property in Carterton will determine any defects e.g. wood worm or sagging.

Carterton conveyancing searches

Environmental, Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability and Local Authority are the standard searches that mortgage lenders will require. These cover a range of issues, including conservation area restrictions.

Exchange of contracts

After terms are agreed and the deposit is ready, contracts are exchanged. The two sides are now obligated to complete the sale and purchase.

On Completion

On a set date, the buyer will then pick up from the estate agent the keys to their new home once the sellers conveyancing solicitor certifies that they are in receipt of the balance of the purchase price.

Help to Buy

Over 17, 000 buyers bought their house through the Government's Help to Buy programme since the launch. The Help to Buy mortgage guarantee scheme enables participating lenders to purchase a guarantee, so they can then offer mortgages of up to 95% loan to value.
