How Your Solicitor Will Complete the Conveyancing in Thamesmead

Obtaining a quote for your conveyancing

Before the legal work will start, you must get a conveyancing solicitor.

Focus on fixed quotes that have no move, no fee protection, but check terms and conditions for additional hidden fees.

Getting your solicitor

Before anything can happen you will have to formally appoint your preferred conveyancing firm for your Thamesmead sale and purchase.

This initial step will require you to check carefully, agree to and sign the solicitors formal terms.

Pre-contract phase

Pre-contract enquires are made, including a preliminary examination of the title. In addition the draft contract itself is prepared by the sellers solicitor.

The final draft is agreed, and a day may be agreed on which to complete.

Instruct a RICS Home Buyer Survey

An experienced RICS Surveyor with experience on Thamesmead properties will establish if there are any issues, for instance bowing walls or obvious electrical problems. House longhorn beetle is an example of a concern in Greenwich.

Conveyancing searches

Environmental, Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability and Local Authority are the four common searches, and they look into a range of factors, including conservation area restrictions.

Exchange of contracts

When the seller and purchaser agree, the two sides sign it and send them to each other. The purchaser then pays the deposit (in general 0.1 of the property price).


On a set date, any remaining funds due to be paid to the sellers conveyancer, and the purchaser gets the keys to the property.

Purchasing with Help to Buy

Almost 20, 000 purchasers acquired a house with the Help to Buy schemes since it launched. There are two Help to Buy schemes, the Equity Loan and Mortgage Guarantee. Each is planned to aid home movers with a deposit of 5%, but are otherwise quite different. The Mortgage Guarantee enables lenders to offer up to a 95% mortgage. The Equity Loan comprises a 20% equity loan from the Government, which can be repaid at any time.
