Conveyancing checklist

  • Deciding on your quote - First, select a property lawyer based on the factors that matter to you. Focus on fixed-fee quotes that have a no sale, no fee guarantee, but ensure that you check terms and conditions for hidden costs.

  • Engaging your preferred solicitor - Once you have identified the lawyer you want to look after the legal work on your Castle Vale sale or purchase you must formally instruct. Don't be pressured until you have had time to ensure you scour the terms of business for any additional fees e.g. costs for filling in a standard SDLT form.

  • Post-instruction - Pre-contract enquires are carried out, such as a preliminary examination of the title to determine if the title is free from defects, and the draft contract itself is prepared. Following receipt of the property information form, further enquiries will also be raised of the sellers property lawyer.

  • Castle Vale searches - Chancel Liability, Local Authority, Environmental and Drainage and Water are the four standard searches, and these cover a range of issues, including conservation area restrictions. In addition, your conveyancing solicitor may also recommend potential additional searches.

  • Exchanging contracts - Contracts are exchanged, and the buyer pays the agreed deposit (usually 0.1 of the price).

  • Completion - The money that is due to be paid is transferred to the sellers lawyer, and the purchaser gets the keys to their new property.
