How a Solicitor Will Carry out the Conveyancing in Dorking

Deciding on a quote

Firstly, find a property lawyer guided by what factors matter to you. Do not focus on the cheap headline fee. Many cheaper estimates might have hidden fees included in the small print.

Appointing your preferred solicitor

Before your conveyancing firm can proceed with the conveyancing process, you will have to formally appoint them. You MUST scour the solicitors fine print for any extra costs, for instance fees for acting on a leasehold property , before consenting to them.

The pre-contract phase

This document collates the deposit, the agreed property price and relevant details of title deeds, and is sent to the buyer's conveyancer from the seller's. The contract is finalised, and initial dates may be set for exchange and completion.

Carrying out the RICS HomeBuyer Report

A good local Surveyor with experience on Dorking properties will identify defects such as flashing problems and penetrating damp. House longhorn beetle can be a known concern affecting Surrey.

Dorking conveyancing searches

There are four standard searches that lenders will request. These are Chancel Liability, Local Authority, Environmental and Drainage and Water. These look into factors including changes near the property, such as planned road or rail works. In addition, your conveyancing solicitor could also recommend additional searches.

Exchanging contracts

Once terms are settled and the deposit is arranged, contracts are exchanged. The parties are now legally obligated to complete the sale and purchase.

On Completion

The buyer can then pick up the keys to the property once the seller's solicitor has confirmed receipt of the money that is due, less the deposit already paid.

After Completion

Even though you will now have taken possession of the property your Dorking property lawyer has unfinished work to complete e.g. paying the stamp duty..

Purchasing with Help to Buy

Over 17, 000 purchasers bought their home under the Help to Buy schemes already. The Help to Buy scheme assists first-time buyers that have saved at least a 5% deposit. In order to qualify for the Help to Buy schemes, the house must be your main residence and you may not have an interest in another property.

For more information, contact the Money Advice Service, or your local Help to Buy agent.
