Morpeth Conveyancing Solicitor Fees

Some solicitors add additional fees in their terms of engagement. Often these additional fees are clearly necessary from the very start i.e. when providing an initial quote.

Always review the terms and conditions for details like supplementary fees for acting on a right to buy purchase or for completing the stamp duty tax return. In-Deed's fixed conveyancing fee guarantee means that figure we quote you is the amount you pay after you move.

Conveyancing process checklist

  1. Obtaining your conveyancing quote - Going with the recommendation of the estate agent can be expensive, so many shop online to find a better-priced conveyancing solicitor. Remember to check terms and conditions for any hidden costs before you make a final decision.

  2. Instructing a solicitor - When you have worked out which company you wish to do the conveyancing on your Morpeth move you will have to formally instruct. To do this you must always thoroughly check any small print for any further conveyancing costs before you sign them.

  3. Pre-contract - The draft contract collates the purchase price, details from the seller's title deeds, and the identities of the parties involved, and is sent by the seller's conveyancing solicitor to the buyer's.

  4. Arrange the Survey - Buyers are strongly recommended to get a RICS HomeBuyer Report of Building Survey as it can pinpoint potentially costly structural issues e.g. subsidence and sagging. Mining related subsidence is a possible local concern affecting Northumberland.

  5. Searches in Morpeth - Chancel Liability, Local Authority, Environmental and Drainage and Water are the standard searches expected by mortgage lenders. These cover matters including environmental issues.

  6. Exchange of contracts - Contracts are exchanged, and the purchaser hands over the deposit (in general ten percent of the property price).

  7. Completion - Completion occurs when the seller's solicitor has confirmed that they have received the balance of the purchase price. The purchaser may then collect the keys to their new house.
