The conveyancing process in Cranfield

  • Selecting a conveyancing solicitor - Although it is technically possible to carry out the conveyancing process yourself, most home movers do not have the experience or appropriate legal knowledge, and opt to instruct a property lawyer. It is important to check terms and conditions for any hidden costs before you decide.

  • Appointing your selected solicitor - At the point you have chosen which conveyancer you would like to complete the legal process for your Cranfield home move you must formally engage their services. This will require you to go over, agree to and sign the solicitor's formal terms of engagement.

  • The draft contract stage - The contract collates confirmation of the price and deposit, and details regarding the buyer and seller, and is sent by the seller's property lawyer to the buyer's. The final version is agreed by the buyer's and seller's solicitors, and initial dates may be settled for exchange and completion.

  • Arrange a Chartered Surveyor to check the property - Property buyers are strongly recommended to get a RICS Survey because it will spot potentially expensive if there are any defects e.g. flat roof problems or drainage problems.

  • Conveyancing searches in Cranfield - Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability, Local Authority and Environmental are the standard searches which mortgage lenders need. These searches cover many issues including whether the property is connected to public drains. Your solicitor could also recommend additional searches.

  • Exchange of contracts - When the seller and buyer are satisfied with the final contract, the two sides sign their copies. The buyer then pays the agreed deposit (in most cases ten percent of the property price).

  • Completion - Any remaining funds due to be paid are paid to the seller's lawyer, and the buyer receives the keys.
