The conveyancing process
Deciding on a solicitor - While it is technically possible to perform the process yourself, most of us will not have the time or specialist legal knowledge, opting instead to instruct a property lawyer. Find fixed quotes that have a 'no sale, no fee' guarantee, but ensure that you check the terms and conditions for any additional hidden fees.
Instructing your chosen solicitor - Once you have ascertained which property lawyer's conveyancing quote you would like to accept, the next step is to appoint them. You absolutely must take care to scour any terms of business for any hidden costs before you approve them.
The draft contract stage - The draft contract sets out information about the transaction including the deposit and purchase price, and is sent to the buyer's conveyancing solicitor from the seller's. The final draft is agreed, and initial dates may be settled for exchange and completion.
Instructing your Building Survey - Buyers are always urged to get a home survey as it can spot any structural issues like the presence of Japanese Knotweed or obvious electrical problems.
Conveyancing searches in Oldham - The standard searches are Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability, Local Authority and Environmental. These searches cover issues including compulsory purchase orders. Possible additional non-standard searches for homes in Oldham include a Coal Mining Search.
Exchanging contracts - When the seller and purchaser are satisfied with the contract, both sides sign. The buyer then transfers through their conveyancing solicitor the deposit (in general 10% of the sale price).
Completion - Less the deposit, funds that are remaining are is transferred to the seller's solicitor, and the purchaser receives the keys to the property, with the title deeds and other documentation.
