The Conveyancing Process Explained

Choosing a conveyancer or solicitorFirstly, select a property lawyer based on your priorities. It is important to check the terms and conditions for any additional hidden fees before you decide to appoint your conveyancing solicitor.

Getting your selected solicitor When you have worked out which lawyer you wish to do the legal procedure for your Slough home-move, you must formally instruct. To do this, as mentioned, you need to scour the solicitors’ terms and conditions for any extra conveyancing costs, like fees for acting on a right-to-buy purchase, before you sign them up.

After you have instructedThe draft contract confirms the sale price, the identities of the two parties, deposits, and title deed information, and it is sent to the buyer’s conveyancing solicitor from the seller’s. The purchaser should also receive their formal mortgage offer at this juncture.

Commissioning the Homebuyer’s SurveyA seasoned surveyor with experience of surveying Slough properties will identify problems such as the presence of Japanese Knotweed and furniture beetle. Clay soil is one of a number of a regional issues common in Slough and Berkshire.

SearchesThe standard searches generally expected by mortgage lenders are Local Authority, Environmental, Drainage and Water, and Chancel Liability, and they cover numerous issues including conservation area restrictions. Your conveyancing solicitor may also advise on potential additional searches, should their investigation deem it appropriate.

Exchange of contractsWhen the seller and purchaser are satisfied with the contract, both sides sign it, and they are then delivered to the other side. The buyer pays the deposit (in most cases 10% of the property price, but this is negotiable). At this point, both buyer and seller are legally bound to go through with the transaction.

On CompletionThe buyer can then collect the keys after the seller’s solicitor confirms receipt of the money that is due, less the 10% deposit.

Online Conveyancing

Conveyancing technology, including solutions like automated updates and case-tracking, has been marketed by many conveyancing-quote websites as the secret to faster, cheaper conveyancing.

However, the key to a less stressful move is a proactive and communicative solicitor, regardless of the software they use. Working with our solicitors at In-Deed, you will have the advantage of 21st-century, online conveyancing coupled with the advice of a dedicated property lawyer.
