How a Horfield property lawyer Will Carry out the Conveyancing

  • Deciding on a quote for the conveyancing - Before the process will begin, you must find a solicitor. Find fixed-fee quotes with no sale, no fee protection, checking terms and conditions for any additional hidden fees.

  • Appointing a solicitor - Once you have identified the conveyancing quote you wish to accept, you must instruct them to carry out the legal procedure for your Horfield sale or purchase. You need to scour the solicitors small print for further conveyancing costs such as charges for filling in an SDLT form , before signing them.

  • Post-instruction - The purchasers solicitor negotiates the draft contract with the sellers conveyancing solicitor. In addition pre-contract enquires are made. Additional enquires will also be raised of the seller once the purchasers conveyancer has checked the completed property information questionnaire (PIQ).

  • Instruct the Home Buyer Report - When buying a property, you will be always recommended to get a RICS HomeBuyer Report of Building Survey as it will identify any structural problems including missing DPC or dangerous modifications. Bristol RICS surveyors covering Horfield homes will also be familiar with regional things which include interlocking clay tiles.

  • Carrying out searches - The common searches usually required by mortgage lenders are Environmental, Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability and Local Authority. These cover numerous issues including changes near the property, such as planned road or rail works.

  • Exchange of contracts - When the seller and buyer are happy with the contract, the two sides sign. The purchaser then pays the deposit (in general ten percent of the property price).

  • Completion - The purchaser will then collect from the estate agent keys to the new home once the sellers conveyancer certifies receipt of any remaining money due.
