The conveyancing process for Caversham houses - a guide

Selecting a quote for your conveyancingFirst, choose a conveyancing solicitor guided by what factors matter to you. It is important to check the small print for any hidden fees before you instruct.

Appointing your preferred solicitor At the point you have identified the solicitor you want to execute the legals on your Caversham move you must appoint them. To do this you absolutely must check the Caversham solicitors terms of business for supplementary conveyancing costs like fees for acting on a new build transaction, before you agree to them.

The pre-contract phaseEnquires are made, including an initial investigation of title, and the draft contract itself will be prepared. More enquiries will also be raised once the buyer's property lawyer has reviewed the property information questionnaire.

Getting the RICS HomeBuyer ReportA local Surveyor with experience on Caversham properties will establish if there are any structural issues including unsafe attic conversions or penetrating damp. Clay soil is a regional problem common in Berkshire.

Searches in CavershamThe standard searches are Chancel Liability, Local Authority, Environmental and Drainage and Water. These look into many issues including checking if the property is a listed building. Your solicitor may also recommend possible additional searches.

Exchanging contracts When the parties are satisfied with the final contract, both sides sign their copies and they are sent to the other party. The buyer then hands over the deposit (generally ten percent of the property price).

CompletionThe buyer can then collect, usually from the agent, keys to the property after the seller's conveyancing solicitor has confirmed receipt of any remaining funds due to be paid.

Post Completion DetailsDespite the fact that you will now have completed on your purchase your property lawyer still has unfinished paperwork to complete such as registering the property.

Purchasing with Help to Buy

Over 17, 000 purchasers purchased their home under the Government's Help to Buy scheme within the first nine months. There are two Help to Buy schemes, the Equity Loan and Mortgage Guarantee. Each is designed to assist first-time buyers that have saved at least a 5% deposit, but are otherwise quite different. The Mortgage Guarantee enables lenders to offer up to a 95% mortgage. The Equity Loan comprises a 20% equity loan from the Government, which can be repaid at any time.
