The conveyancing process
Selecting a conveyancer or solicitor
Choosing the preferred option of the agent can be expensive, and many home movers go online to find a better fee.
Look for quotes with no sale, no fee protection, checking the small print for additional fees.
Getting your chosen solicitor
At the point you have selected the property lawyers quote you would like to accept, the next step is to instruct them.
You need to check the solicitors terms accompanying the quote for any hidden conveyancing fees e.g. costs for storing your deeds , before you consent to them.
Once you have instructed, the conveyancing solicitor will make contact with the other sides [2var5] to agree the draft contract. This document collates the sale price, identities of the two parties, deposits, and title deed information.
After the property information form is received, additional enquires will also be raised.
Arranging your Survey
A good local Surveyor with experience on Langley properties will pinpoint problems including Japanese Knotweed or boundary issues.
There are four routine searches generally recommended by conveyancers. These are Chancel Liability, Local Authority, Environmental and Drainage and Water, and these cover a range of factors, including planning permission.
Your solicitor may also recommend further searches.
When terms are agreed and the deposit is ready, contracts are exchanged. Both parties are now legally obligated to go through with the sale and purchase.
The balance of the funds that are due is transferred to the sellers lawyer, and the purchaser receives the keys.
Langley Help to Buy Conveyancing
The Help to Buy scheme aims to support first-time buyers with a 5% deposit. In order to be eligible for Help to Buy, the property needs to be your main home and not Buy to Let.
For more information regarding the scheme, contact the Money Advice Service, or your local Help to Buy agent.
