The Sale and Purchase Conveyancing Process

Selecting a conveyancing quoteChoosing the preferred option of the agent can be costly, and many shop around for a more reasonable price. Ensure that you check the terms and conditions for any additional costs before you make a final decision.

Instructing your preferred solicitor When you have decided upon the solicitor you want to execute the conveyancing for your Frenchay move you will have to instruct them. To do this you need to scour the solicitors terms and conditions for any hidden costs like fees for CHAPS transfers (bank fees) , before approving them.

Drafting contractsPre-contract enquires are carried out, including confirmation that the property may be sold by the seller. Additionally the draft contract itself will be drawn up. The contract is finalised, and dates may be set for exchange and completion.

Booking your RICS Home Buyer SurveyWhen buying a property, you will be strongly encouraged to get a Building Survey as it will establish if there are any possible issues including flashing problems and sulphate attack. Portland stone weathering can be one of a number of a issue found in Bristol.

Ordering searchesEnvironmental, Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability and Local Authority are the typical searches required by mortgage lenders. These searches cover many matters including checking if the property is a listed building. Furthermore, your conveyancer could also recommend potential additional searches.

Exchanging contractsOnce the deposit is ready and the terms of the contract are agreed, contracts are exchanged. The parties are now bound by law to complete the transaction.

CompletionThe deeds are handed over to the buyer, once payment of the balance of the purchase price is made. The keys to the property can then be picked up.

Post CompletionSoon after you have taken possession of the property a conveyancing solicitor has unfinished work to carry out such as registering title deeds.
