The conveyancing process

Deciding on a conveyancing quote

The first step in the procedure is selecting a conveyancing solicitor to actually carry out the work.

Instructing a solicitor

Before a lawyer is able to move forward the legal procedure for your Wokingham transaction, it will be necessary to formally instruct them. To do this you must always check their terms of engagement for any hidden fees like costs for acting on a shared ownership transaction, before you consent to them.

The pre-contract stage

The contract collates title deed information, the price, and the deposit, and is sent by the seller's lawyer to the buyer's. The final version is agreed, and an initial date may be set on which to complete.

Obtain a HomeBuyer Report

Purchasers are strongly encouraged to get a Building Survey as it can determine if there are any structural issues like subsidence and obvious electrical problems. Berkshire RICS surveyors in Wokingham will also be know about things which may include clay soil.

Ordering searches

There are four standard searches ordered by property lawyers. These are Chancel Liability, Local Authority, Environmental and Drainage and Water. These searches look into a range of factors, including details of conservation area controls.

Exchange of contracts

When the buyer and seller are happy with the contract, the two sides sign their copies. The purchaser then transfers the deposit (in most cases 10% of the property price).

Completion

Completion will occur when the seller's solicitor confirms that they are in receipt of the balance of the sale price, less the deposit. The buyer can then pick up, usually from the agent, keys to the property.
