How a property lawyer Will Carry out the Conveyancing in Old Town
Choosing your quote - The first step in the legal work is finding a property lawyer to carry out the work. Look for quotes with no sale, no fee protection, but ensure that you check the small print for any hidden additional fees.
Appointing your selected solicitor - At the point you have decided which company you want to do the conveyancing for your Old Town sale or purchase you will need to formally engage their services. It is imperative to always scrutinise in detail the fine print for any hidden fees like fees for acting on a leasehold matter.
Draft contracts - The sellers solicitor negotiates the draft contract with the buyers solicitor. Additionally enquires are undertaken. The property buyer may also receive a mortgage offer from the lender by this stage.
Obtaining the RICS HomeBuyer Report - A good local Surveyor with experience on Old Town properties will pinpoint structural issues like potential asbestos and potential building regulations breaches.
Ordering searches - The standard searches usually required by mortgage lenders are Environmental, Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability and Local Authority, and these look into a broad range of factors, including planning permission.
Exchange of contracts - Contracts are signed and exchanged. The buyer and seller are legally obligated to complete the sale and purchase.
Completion - The balance of the sale price, less the deposit, is wired to the sellers lawyer, and the purchaser receives keys to the property.
