How a Solicitor Will Carry out the Conveyancing in Flitwick
Obtaining a quote for your legal work
First, select a property lawyer based on your priorities. Look for quotes that have a 'no sale, no fee' guarantee, but ensure that you check terms and conditions for additional fees.
Engaging a solicitor
Before your selected lawyer is able to get on with the conveyancing process, it will be necessary to formally instruct them. This initial step requires you to go over, agree to and sign the solicitors small print.
The seller's conveyancing solicitor agrees the draft contract with the buyer's property lawyer. Additionally enquires are made. The final version is agreed, and initial dates may be set for exchange and completion.
Instruct a RICS Surveyor to examine the home
A good local Surveyor with experience of surveying property in Flitwick will spot potentially expensive structural problems e.g. wood boring insects and potential planning breaches.
Flitwick conveyancing searches
The standard searches are Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability, Local Authority and Environmental. These cover numerous factors including land contamination. Your lawyer could also recommend potential additional searches.
Exchange of contracts
When the buyer and seller agree on a final draft, the two sides sign and send them to each other. The buyer then hands over the agreed deposit (usually 10% of the property price).
Any remaining funds due to be paid are transferred to the seller's solicitor, and the purchaser receives keys to their purchase.
Help to Buy Conveyancing
Over 17, 000 purchasers bought their new home through the Help to Buy scheme since the launch. Help to Buy is designed to assist home buyers with a 5% deposit.
