Conveyancing Process

Choosing a solicitorAlthough you may undertake the process yourself, most home movers have neither the technical expertise nor the time, opting instead to select a conveyancing solicitor. Ensure that you check the terms and conditions for any additional fees before you decide.

Instructing a solicitor Before anything can happen you have to engage your conveyancing company for your Lake District transaction. To do this you MUST scour their terms and conditions for any hidden fees costs before you approve them.

The pre-contract stageEnquires are undertaken, including a review of the title to check that it is free from defects. Also the draft contract itself will be prepared by the sellers solicitor. Further enquiries will be raised after the purchasers lawyer has checked the property information form.

Getting your SurveyBuyers are strongly recommended to get a RICS Survey as it can be made aware of any issues including ground heave and dangerous chimney stacks.

Lake District searchesDrainage and Water, Chancel Liability, Local Authority and Environmental are the normal searches that lenders will request. These searches look into a wide range of issues, including details of conservation area controls. In addition, your conveyancing solicitor may also advise on possible additional searches.

Exchanging contractsAfter the lender has formalised their offer and the deposit is ready, contracts are exchanged. Both sides are now obliged to sell and buy the property.

CompletionThis will, usually on set date, happen when the sellers solicitor has confirmed receipt of , less the 10% deposit, funds that are remaining. The purchaser may then pick up from the agent the keys to their new property.

In order to be eligible for this scheme, the home being acquired must be a shared ownership or shared equity purchase, or a second home.
