How a Hungerford Solicitor Will Carry out the Conveyancing

  • Getting a solicitor - Though it is possible to perform the procedure yourself, most home movers do not have the experience or appropriate legal knowledge, and instead instruct a property lawyer. Look for quotes with no move, no fee protection, but be sure to check terms and conditions for any hidden fees.

  • Instructing a solicitor - Now you must instruct your conveyancing company for your Hungerford transaction. You need to scour any terms for supplementary costs such as charges for representing a lender , before you sign them.

  • The draft contract - Preliminary enquires, such as an initial examination of title documents determining whether the title is free from defects, and the draft contract itself is drawn up. The purchaser may get the formal mortgage offer by this stage of the process.

  • Carrying out a Survey - A local RICS Surveyor with experience of surveying property in Hungerford will spot any issues like unsafe attic conversions or furniture beetle. Clay soil is a regional issue in Berkshire.

  • Hungerford searches - There are four common searches. These are Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability, Local Authority and Environmental. These searches investigate many issues including changes near the property, such as planning permission for a school.

  • Exchanging contracts - After the purchasers mortgage offer is in place, contracts are exchanged. The two parties are now legally obligated to go through with the transaction.

  • Completion - The sellers deeds are handed over to the purchaser, once payment of the balance of the purchase price is made. The keys to the property can then be collected.

  • Post Completion - Despite the fact that you will now have moved your Hungerford property lawyer has certain formalities to complete including registering the property.
