Guide to your conveyancing for Shard End homes

  • Finding a quote for your conveyancing - Whilst you can undertake the procedure yourself, the majority of buyers and sellers do not have the property legal knowledge or time, and opt to instruct a property lawyer. It is important to check the terms for additional costs before you instruct.

  • Instructing a solicitor - Before anything can happen you should engage a solicitor in Shard End. Remember to always really check their terms and conditions for supplementary conveyancing fees , for instance fees for SDLT form completion.

  • Initial stages - Following instruction, the property lawyer will contact the [2var3] acting for the other side to receive the draft contract. This document sets out title deed information, the price, and the deposit. By this stage, the purchaser should get their formal mortgage offer by this stage in the conveyancing process.

  • Searches in Shard End - Drainage and Water, Chancel Liability, Local Authority and Environmental are the four basic searches, and these look into many factors including enforcement actions for a breach of planning permission. Potential further non-standard searches in Shard End could include a Limestone Search.

  • Exchange of contracts - Contracts are signed and exchanged. The seller and purchaser are obliged to complete the transaction.

  • Completion - On a set date, the buyer can then pick up, usually from the agent, keys to the new home once the sellers solicitor certifies that they have the balance of the purchase price.
