How a property lawyer Will Complete the Conveyancing in Maidenhead
Deciding on a solicitor
First, find a conveyancing solicitor based on what matters most for you. Look for fixed quotes with 'no move, no fee' protection, but check the terms for hidden additional fees.
Appointing a solicitor
When you have chosen which solicitor you would like to manage the legals on your Maidenhead home move it will be necessary to formally appoint them. To do this you need to scour any terms for any additional conveyancing fees such as fees for acting on a new build property, before you sign them.
Pre-contract enquires are sent, including a review of the deeds to check that it is free from defects. In addition the draft contract itself will be prepared. The property buyer should also receive a mortgage offer from the lender at this stage of the conveyancing.
Carrying out your Survey
A local Surveyor with experience of surveying property in Maidenhead will pinpoint issues including lack of internal support or mould. Clay soil can be a known local issue in Berkshire.
Carrying out searches
Local Authority, Environmental, Drainage and Water, and Chancel Liability are the four standard searches usually ordered by lawyers, and they investigate a range of issues, including planning permission. Your conveyancing solicitor could also recommend possible further searches.
When the buyer and seller are happy with the contract, the two sides sign and send them to the other side. The buyer then hands over the agreed deposit (in most cases 10% of the sale price, but this is negotiable).
The balance (less the deposit) of the purchase price is paid to the seller's conveyancing solicitor, and the purchaser receives the keys to their new property.
After you have moved in, your property lawyer will still have certain formalities to undertake such as sending documents to the mortgagor.
The Help to Buy programme
Since its launch in 2013, this programme has helped over 17, 000 of home movers. The Help to Buy mortgage guarantee scheme is designed to assist home movers who have saved a 5% deposit. To be eligible for this programme, the home being purchased needs to be your main residence and you may not have an interest in another property £600, 000 is the highest property value available under the scheme.
