Step-by-step conveyancing steps
Selecting a solicitor - The first step in the conveyancing process is finding a legal professional to carry out the work.
Getting your chosen solicitor - Before anything can happen you will need to engage your selected conveyancing company for your Colnbrook move. You should check their terms for any hidden conveyancing costs such as costs for dealing with a mortgagor , before you sign them.
Draft contracts phase - This document specifies the deposit, the agreed property price and relevant details of title deeds, and is sent by the sellers solicitor to the buyers. The final draft is agreed, and initial dates may be settled for exchange and completion.
Instructing your Survey - A home survey is advised to be able to establish if there are structural problems e.g. Japanese Knotweed and sulphate attack.
Ordering searches - Local Authority, Environmental, Drainage and Water, and Chancel Liability are the four typical searches required by mortgage lenders. These searches cover many factors including conservation area restrictions.
Exchanging contracts - After the lender has formalised their offer and the deposit is ready, contracts are exchanged. The parties are now legally obligated to go through with the transaction.
On Completion - On the specified date, the buyer can collect keys to the new home once the sellers lawyer has confirmed that they have received the balance (less the deposit) of the purchase price.
Post Completion Details - Now you have taken possession of the property your Colnbrook solicitor will still have loose ends to carry out such as getting the transfer stamped.
Help to Buy
