How a Watchet Solicitor Will Complete the Conveyancing

  1. Obtaining a solicitors quote - The first step in the legal work is selecting a conveyancing solicitor to actually carry out the work. Focus on fixed-fee quotes that have no move, no fee protection, but check the small print for any additional fees.

  2. Instructing a solicitor - Next you must officially appoint a lawyer for your Watchet sale and purchase. It is key to scour the solicitors terms of engagement for any further costs e.g. costs for completing certain conveyancing forms.

  3. Initial stages - This document sets out details of the parties, title deed information, and the property price, and is sent to the buyers solicitor from the sellers. The final draft is agreed by both sides solicitors, and an initial date may be set to complete.

  4. Arrange your Surveyor to carry out a survey at your new home - Purchasers are invariably encouraged to get a property survey because it will pinpoint any serious structural problems, for instance cavity wall issues and boundary issues. maritime zone weathering is also a factor common in Somerset.

  5. Searches - Environmental, Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability and Local Authority are the searches the conveyancer arranges in most cases. These look into numerous factors including enforcement actions for a breach of planning permission. Your conveyancer may also advise on possible additional searches.

  6. Exchanging contracts - When the seller and buyer are happy with the contract, both sides sign it. The buyer then pays the deposit (in most cases 0.1 of the price).

  7. On Completion - The purchaser can then collect the keys to their new property once the sellers conveyancer certifies that they have received the money that is due, less the deposit already paid.

  8. After Completion - Although you have moved your property lawyer has loose ends to complete including submitting the SDLT form to HMRC.
