How the Conveyancing Process is Completed
Finding a conveyancing quote - Before the conveyancing process will begin, you must choose a property lawyer. It is important to check terms and conditions for any additional costs prior to instructing.
Appointing a solicitor - Once you have chosen which conveyancing quote you would like to agree to, the next step is to appoint them to carry out the legals on your St George property sale or purchase. You need to check their small print for any hidden charges , for instance fees for SDLT formalities , before signing them.
Draft contracts phase - Pre-contract enquires are made, which include confirming boundaries of the property, and the draft contract itself is prepared.
Arrange your RICS HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey - When buying a property, you will be strongly recommended to get a RICS Survey as it will identify structural issues like the presence of Japanese Knotweed or possible conservation area breaches. Portland stone weathering can be an example of a local issue in Bristol.
Ordering searches - The standard searches are Environmental, Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability and Local Authority. These searches review a range of factors, including upcoming changes nearby the property. In addition, your solicitor could also recommend additional searches.
Exchanging contracts - When the two parties are satisfied with the final contract, the two sides sign it and they are sent to the other party. The buyer then pays the agreed deposit (generally 0.1 of the property price, but this is negotiable).
Completion - On a set day, the purchaser can then pick up, usually from the agent, keys to their purchase once the sellers solicitor confirms that they are in receipt of the money that is due, less the deposit already paid.
After Completion Issues - When you have taken possession of the property your property lawyer still has a number of tasks to carry out e.g. paying the SDLT.
