How a property lawyer Will Complete the Conveyancing in Windsor
Getting a conveyancing quote - Before the procedure can start, you will need to select a property lawyer. Ensure that you check the small print for any additional hidden fees before you decide.
Instructing a solicitor - First thing, you should officially instruct your property solicitor for your Windsor sale and purchase. You should check their terms of engagement for any hidden costs such as costs for representing a lender, before you sign them.
After you have instructed - The draft contract sets out the parties buying and selling, the price and other information about the purchase including the deposit, and is sent to the buyer's conveyancing solicitor from the seller's. The final draft is agreed by both sides' conveyancers, and the date on which to complete.
Getting a HomeBuyer Report - Home buyers are usually advised to get a HomeBuyer Report as it will determine any potential structural issues, for instance timber infestation and condensation problems. The risk of flooding can be a issue found in Berkshire.
Carrying out searches - Local Authority, Environmental, Drainage and Water, and Chancel Liability are the searches a conveyancing solicitor orders, and these look into a range of factors, including whether the property is connected to public drains. Additionally, your lawyer could also recommend possible further searches.
Exchange of contracts - When the two parties agree, the two sides sign. The buyer then pays via their lawyer the agreed deposit (in most cases ten percent of the property price).
Completion - Usually on a set day, the purchaser can then pick up the keys to their new property once the seller's conveyancing solicitor has confirmed that they have received, less the 10% deposit, funds that are remaining.
Post Completion Issues - At the point you have moved, your conveyancer now has certain tasks to complete such as registering the property at HM Land Registry.
