The Conveyancing Process

  • Finding a quote for your legal work - Selecting the agents recommendation is often a costly affair, so many home movers do more research to find conveyancer. Look for fixed-fee quotes with 'no move, no fee' protection, checking the small print for hidden fees.

  • Appointing your solicitor - When you have decided which company you want to complete the legal work for your Newbury sale or purchase you will have to appoint them. You should check the Newbury solicitors terms and conditions for any additional charges, for instance charges for storing deeds after completion, before you agree to them.

  • Post-instruction stage - Pre-contract enquires are made, including an examination of title documents, and the draft contract itself is prepared by the seller's lawyer.

  • Book your Qualified Surveyor to check the building - A good local RICS Surveyor with experience of surveying Newbury properties will establish if there are any issues like the presence of Japanese Knotweed and furniture beetle. RICS surveyors working in Newbury will, in addition, be well informed of regional problems including clay soil.

  • Newbury searches - Chancel Liability, Local Authority, Environmental and Drainage and Water are the four common searches recommended by lawyers. These searches cover many factors including whether the property is connected to public drains.

  • Exchanging contracts - When the buyer's mortgage offer is in place, terms are agreed, and the deposit is ready, contracts are exchanged. The seller and purchaser are now bound to sell and buy the property.

  • Completion - Usually on a set day, the deeds are delivered to the purchaser, after payment of any remaining money due is made. The keys to their new house may the be picked up.
