Conveyancing guide

Selecting a solicitorThe first step in the process is finding a property lawyer to carry out the work. Do not rely on a low headline fee. Many cheaper quotes will have additional costs in terms and conditions.

Getting a solicitor Before your chosen lawyer is able to commence the conveyancing work for your move, you will need to formally instruct them. To do this you need to check their terms of business for further charges , for instance costs for dealing with a mortgage lender , before you approve them.

The initial stagesPre-contract enquires are made, including things like a preliminary investigation of title determining whether the title is free from defects. Additionally the draft contract itself will be drawn up. The purchaser should also receive a formal offer from their lender at this stage of the process.

Getting the Home Buyer ReportAn experienced Surveyor with experience of surveying property in Hermitage will establish if there are any structural problems, for instance lack of internal support and boundary issues.

Hermitage searchesDrainage and Water, Chancel Liability, Local Authority and Environmental are the four standard searches. These cover a wide range of issues, including land contamination.

Exchanging contractsContracts are signed by the seller and buyer and exchanged by their solicitor, binding them to complete the transaction.

CompletionCompletion occurs when the sellers solicitor certifies that they have remaining funds, less the deposit paid on exchange, and the purchaser can then pick up, usually from the agent, the keys to their new house.

Purchasing with Help to Buy

The Government's Help to Buy programme aims to help home movers with a deposit of 5%. In order to be eligible for the Help to Buy scheme, the property will need to be not Buy to Let, and the mortgage must be repayment (not interest-only).
