Step-by-step conveyancing guide in Westbourne
Choosing a quote from a solicitor - Going with the estate agents preference can be expensive, and many home movers do more research to find a lower fee. It is important to check the terms for hidden costs before you make a final decision.
Appointing a solicitor - When you have worked out which firm you wish to complete the legals for your Westbourne transaction you will need to formally instruct. To do this you MUST scour the fine print for any hidden costs like costs for bank transfers , before agreeing to them.
Draft contracts phase - The sellers property lawyer negotiates the draft contract with the buyers conveyancing solicitor. In addition enquires are made. The contract is finalised, and dates may be set for exchange and completion.
Commissioning a HomeBuyer Report - A good local RICS Surveyor with experience of surveying property in Westbourne will pinpoint structural issues such as wood boring insects and drainage problems.
Conveyancing searches in Westbourne - Local Authority, Environmental, Drainage and Water, and Chancel Liability are the four normal searches usually ordered by lawyers. These searches cover a range of factors, including enforcement actions for a breach of planning permission. Additional searches for property in Westbourne could include a China Search and Tin Mining Search.
Exchanging contracts - When the parties are satisfied with the final contract, both sides sign their copies. The buyer then pays the agreed deposit (usually 0.1 of the property price).
Completion - The balance of the sale price, less the deposit, is paid to the sellers solicitor, and the buyer receives the keys to their new home.
