How the Conveyancing Process is Completed
Deciding on a solicitor's quote
First, get a conveyancing solicitor based on the factors that matter to you. Don't rely on an attractive headline fee, because many cheaper quotes will have hidden additional fees in terms and conditions.
Getting a solicitor
As soon as you have identified which property lawyer you would like to manage the legals on your Hartlepool sale or purchase you will need to appoint them. To do this you MUST check the solicitors fine print for any extra conveyancing costs before you sign them.
The pre-contract stage
This document collates information about the transaction including the deposit and purchase price, and is sent to the buyer's property lawyer from the seller's. Following receipt of the property information form, further enquiries will also be raised of the seller's solicitor.
Get a Surveyor to survey the property
An experienced Surveyor with experience of surveying Hartlepool properties will establish if there are any issues e.g. pitched roof problems or potential planning breaches.
Conveyancing searches in Hartlepool
Chancel Liability, Local Authority, Environmental and Drainage and Water are the four common searches usually ordered by lawyers. These cover many issues including checking if the property is a listed building.
Contracts are signed and exchanged. Both sides are legally obligated to go through with the sale and purchase.
Any remaining funds due to be paid are paid to the seller's conveyancer, and the purchaser receives the keys.
Help to Buy in Hartlepool
The Government's Help to Buy programme aims to assist home movers with a deposit of at least 5%. In order to be eligible for this scheme, the property being bought will need to be your main residence (not Buy to Let), you cannot have interest in any other property, and the mortgage must be repayment (not interest only).
