Some property lawyers sneak conveyancing fees in their T's and C's. It is often the case that additional fees may be clearly necessary from the very start i.e. when providing an initial quote of the matter.

Organic food nuts should head over to Farnham Farmers Market at Farnham, Surrey, GU9. Local residents will enjoy Aldershot Military Museum and Godalming Museum. Nearby shops include R.J Ford & Sons butchers and Maison Blanc bakery. Local pubs include the Queens Head, the Slug & Lettuce and the Marlborough Head.

Farnham's local residents may also buy the weekly shop at the area's Waitrose on The Hart. This particular supermarket provides more than a shop to buy emergency digestive biscuits. Living near a Waitrose can increase the sale price of your property by up to fifty percent. Agents may be sceptical of 'the Waitrose effect', yet this remains an issue to consider for anyone purchasing property in Farnham.

How a Solicitor Will Carry out the Conveyancing in Farnham

Selecting a quote for the conveyancing

Firstly, select a legal professional based on what matters most to you. Don't rely on an attractive headline fee, because many lower quotes have additional fees in the terms.

Appointing a solicitor

As soon as you have identified the property lawyer you would like to execute the legal process for your Farnham property sale or purchase it will be necessary to formally instruct. You should always scour their terms and conditions for further conveyancing charges e.g. fees for filling in a standard SDLT form , before consenting to them.

Post-instruction stage

The purchaser's conveyancing solicitor agrees the draft contract with the seller's conveyancing solicitor. Additionally preliminary enquires are made. By this stage in the process, the purchaser should also receive their formal mortgage offer by this stage in the process.

Book your Surveyor to examine your new home

Property buyers are always recommended to get a survey because it will spot any defects e.g. flat roof problems or damp. House longhorn beetle is also one of a number of an area concern found in Surrey.

Carrying out searches

There are four common searches. These are Local Authority, Environmental, Drainage and Water, and Chancel Liability. These cover a broad range of factors, including planning permission.

Exchanging contracts

After the lender has formalised their offer and the deposit is ready, contracts are exchanged. The two sides are now bound by law to sell and buy the property.


On an agreed date, the balance of the purchase price delivered to the seller's conveyancer, and the purchaser collects the keys to their new house.

Purchasing with Help to Buy

In order to qualify for Help to Buy, the property being bought needs to be not Buy to Let, and the mortgage must be repayment (not interest-only). £600, 000 is the highest property value available under the scheme.
