How a Solicitor Will Carry out the Conveyancing in Leighton Buzzard

Selecting a quote for the legal workAlthough you may perform the process yourself, the vast majority of people will not have the legal expertise, experience or time, deciding instead to move with a conveyancer. Do not focus on the cheap headline fee, as many cheap estimates will have additional hidden fees in the terms and conditions.

Instructing a solicitor Before a conveyancing company can get on with the legal work for your move you will need to officially instruct them. This will require you to review, approve and sign the solicitor's formal terms.

The draft contract stageOnce you have instructed, the lawyer will contact the other side's solicitor to receive the draft contract. This document specifies details of the parties, title deed information, and the property price.

Getting your RICS SurveyA good local Surveyor with experience of surveying property in Leighton Buzzard will spot potentially expensive defects such as missing DPC or mould.

Conveyancing searches in Leighton BuzzardLocal Authority, Environmental, Drainage and Water, and Chancel Liability are the searches a solicitor will usually order, and these look into matters including enforcement actions for a breach of planning permission.

Exchanging contractsWhen the purchaser's mortgage offer is in place, contracts are exchanged. The parties are now legally obligated to go through with the transaction.

CompletionUsually on a set date, the deeds are handed over to the purchaser, once payment of the balance of the purchase price is made. The keys to the property are then collected.

Help to Buy

The Help to Buy mortgage guarantee scheme is planned to aid home movers with a deposit of at least 5%. To be eligible for the Help to Buy schemes, the property must 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).
