Choosing a quote for the legal work
Selecting the agents recommendation is often a costly affair, so many home movers shop around for a more reasonable price.
Focus on fixed quotes with a no sale, no fee guarantee, but ensure that you check terms and conditions for any hidden costs.
Getting your selected solicitor
When you have identified which property lawyers conveyancing quote you want to go ahead with the first thing to do is formally instruct them.
To do this you need to scour any terms of engagement for supplementary costs e.g. fees for bank transfers , before agreeing to them.
Once you have instructed, your conveyancing solicitor will communicate with the [2var3] acting for the other side to receive the draft contract. The draft contract collates the parties buying and selling, the price and other information about the purchase including the deposit.
Following receipt of the property information form, more enquiries will also be raised of the seller.
Getting the HomeBuyer Report
Purchasers are typically advised to get a RICS HomeBuyer Report of Building Survey because it will determine serious structural issues including lack of internal support or defective chimney stacks.
There are four typical searches. These are Environmental, Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability and Local Authority. These cover a wide range of issues, including compulsory purchase orders.
Furthermore, your solicitor could also recommend potential additional searches.
Exchange of contracts
Once the lender has formalised their offer and the deposit is ready, contracts are exchanged. Both sides are now bound to go through with the transaction.
The deeds are delivered to the purchaser, once payment of the balance of the sale price, less the deposit is made. The keys to the property may the be picked up.
