The Sale and Purchase Conveyancing Process

Selecting a quote

Whilst it is possible to perform the legal process yourself, the majority of us will not have the legal expertise, experience or time, opting alternatively to instruct a legal professional.

Instructing your solicitor

At the point you have ascertained which lawyer you would like to handle the legal procedure for your Milton Keynes move you will have to formally engage their services. You should check their small print for any concealed conveyancing charges such as fees for acting on a new build, before you sign them.

The initial phases

Pre-contract enquires are made, such as an initial investigation of title. Also the draft contract itself is prepared. The final version is agreed, and the date for completion.

Instruct your Surveyor to inspect the home

A local Surveyor with experience on Milton Keynes properties will spot any structural problems such as cavity wall issues or rising damp. Clay soil is an example of an area thing common in South East England.

Milton Keynes conveyancing searches

Environmental, Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability and Local Authority are the four typical searches usually ordered by solicitors, and they cover numerous issues including changes near the property, such as planning for a new road.

Exchange of contracts

When the purchaser's mortgage offer is in place, contracts are exchanged. Both parties are now bound by law to complete the transaction.

Completion

Completion will happen when the seller's conveyancing solicitor has confirmed that they have, less the 10% deposit, funds that are remaining. The buyer may then pick up from the agent keys to the new home.

Buying with Help to Buy

Over 17, 000 home movers acquired property through the Government's Help to Buy scheme in the first 9 months. The Government's Help to Buy scheme enables participating lenders to purchase a guarantee, so they can then offer mortgages of up to 95% loan to value.

For further information, speak to the Money Advice Service, or your local Help to Buy agent. Bedfordshire Pilgrims Housing Association (call 03333 214044) is Milton Keynes's local agent.
