The conveyancing process in Totterdown
Finding a quote
Though it is technically possible to undertake the conveyancing process yourself, most home movers will not have the legal expertise, experience or time, rightly deciding instead to instruct a legal professional.
Be sure to check the terms and conditions for any additional fees before you decide.
Appointing a solicitor
Before your conveyancer can move forward the conveyancing work for your Totterdown move, you will have to officially instruct them.
You must always check their fine print for any further conveyancing costs e.g. costs for acting on a leasehold matter , before approving them.
The pre-contract stage
The purchasers solicitor agrees the draft contract with the sellers solicitor. Additionally pre-contract enquires are made.
After the property information questionnaire is received, further enquiries will be raised.
Instruct a RICS HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey
Property buyers are invariably recommended to get a property survey as it can spot any structural problems, for instance ground heave or furniture beetle.
There are four normal searches ordered by conveyancing solicitors. These are Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability, Local Authority and Environmental. These searches investigate numerous issues including enforcement actions for a breach of planning permission.
When the seller and buyer agree on a final draft, the two sides sign. The buyer then transfers through their conveyancer the 0.1 deposit.
On a set date, the purchaser can then pick up, usually from the agent, the keys to the property once the sellers conveyancing solicitor confirms receipt of the money that is due, less the deposit already paid.
