How a Luton property lawyer Will Complete the Conveyancing
Finding a quote from a solicitor
Firstly, find a legal professional based on your priorities. Don't rely on the cheap headline fee. Many cheap estimates might have hidden costs in the small print.
Instructing a solicitor
At the point you have decided upon the lawyer you want to handle the legal work for your Luton sale or purchase it will be necessary to instruct them. This initial step requires you to consent to and sign the solicitors terms.
The initial stages
The draft contract collates the property price and other information about the sale such as deposits, and is sent by the seller's solicitor to the buyer's. More enquiries will also be raised once the buyer's solicitor has reviewed the completed property information form.
Booking a HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey
A good local Surveyor with experience of surveying property in Luton will spot potentially expensive problems, for instance missing DPC or mould.
Conveyancing searches in Luton
Chancel Liability, Local Authority, Environmental and Drainage and Water are the four standard searches required by mortgage lenders, and these cover issues including planning permission.
Exchange of contracts
Contracts are signed and exchanged. The seller and buyer are obligated to go through with the transaction.
On the day usually specified in the contract, the seller's deeds are handed over to the buyer, once payment of the funds that is due is made. The keys are then collected.
