Property legal steps
|Selecting a quote for your conveyancing||Firstly, select a solicitor based on what matters most to you. Find quotes that have no sale, no fee protection, but ensure that you check terms and conditions for hidden costs.|
|Getting a solicitor||Now you must formally instruct your conveyancing company for your Cotham move. You should scour any fine print for any hidden conveyancing costs like fees for obtaining leasehold management information on leasehold sale , before signing them.|
|The initial stages||This document specifies information about the transaction itself including the sale price and the deposit and details of the two parties, and is sent by the sellers conveyancing solicitor to the buyers. After the property information form is received, additional enquires will also be raised of the seller.|
|Arranging a Home Buyers Survey||A competent local RICS Surveyor with experience of surveying property in Cotham will establish if there are any defects, for instance bulging walls or unsupported chimney breasts. Portland stone weathering is also a possible area thing affecting Bristol.|
|Carrying out searches||There are four standard searches usually required by lenders. These are Chancel Liability, Local Authority, Environmental and Drainage and Water, and these look into matters including environmental issues. In addition, your conveyancing solicitor may also advise on potential additional searches.|
|Exchange of contracts||When the seller and buyer agree on a final draft, both sides sign copies. The purchaser then pays the agreed deposit (usually 0.1 of the property price, but this is negotiable).|
|Completion||This will occur on a set date when the sellers solicitor has confirmed that they have received the balance (less the deposit) of the purchase price. The buyer can then collect keys to the property.|
