How a Solicitor Will Complete the Conveyancing in Fishponds
Selecting a conveyancing solicitor - Though you may undertake the conveyancing process yourself, the vast majority of people do not have the experience or appropriate legal knowledge, opting instead to instruct a solicitor. Be sure to check the small print for additional fees before you instruct.
Instructing a solicitor - At the point you have chosen which firm you want to do the legal work on your Fishponds transaction you must appoint them. You should always scour the Fishponds solicitors fine print accompanying the quote for any hidden conveyancing fees e.g. charges for filling in a standard SDLT form , before approving them.
Post-instruction stage - Enquires are undertaken, such as checking for disputes. Additionally the draft contract itself will be prepared by the seller's lawyer.
Carrying out the RICS Home Buyers Survey - A competent local RICS Surveyor with experience of surveying Fishponds properties will spot any defects like timber infestation or wall cracks. Surveyors working in Fishponds will also be aware of things like.
Fishponds searches - The typical searches are Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability, Local Authority and Environmental. These review matters including land contamination.
Exchanging contracts - Contracts are exchanged, and the purchaser pays the agreed 10% deposit.
Completion - This happens when the seller's solicitor confirms that they have received the money that is due, less the deposit already paid, and the purchaser will then collect from the estate agent keys to the property.
