How Your Sandy Solicitor Will Carry out the Conveyancing
Selecting a conveyancing quote - Though it is possible to complete the conveyancing process yourself, the majority of us do not have enough legal experience, and instruct a solicitor. Find fixed quotes with a no sale, no fee guarantee, checking the small print for additional fees.
Instructing a solicitor - Once you have identified the conveyancer you want to complete the conveyancing on your Sandy property sale or purchase it will be necessary to formally instruct. This first step requires you to consent to and sign the solicitors terms.
Pre-contract phase - After you have instructed, the lawyer will contact the [2var3] instructed by the other side to receive the draft contract. This document sets out title deed information, the price, and the deposit. The final version is agreed by the buyers and sellers conveyancing solicitors, and preliminary dates may be set for exchange and completion.
Booking your Survey - An experienced Surveyor with experience of surveying Sandy properties will spot potentially expensive structural problems including unsafe attic conversions or unsupported chimney breasts.
Sandy conveyancing searches - The common searches are Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability, Local Authority and Environmental, and they investigate many issues including planning permission. Additionally, your property lawyer may also advise on possible additional searches.
Exchange of contracts - Once the purchasers mortgage offer is in place, contracts are exchanged. The buyer and seller are now legally obligated to go through with the transaction.
Completion - On a set date, the deeds are delivered to the purchaser, once payment of remaining funds, less the deposit paid on exchange is made. The keys are then picked up.
Post Completion - Now you have the keys, your solicitor now has loose ends to complete like paying the stamp duty..
