Whether you are buying your first home or relocating, purchasing a property can be both an exciting and daunting process.
You need a reliable and thorough conveyancing solicitor to make sure things go smoothly. We take care of the legal side of things, so you can focus on getting ready to move.
When you are ready to make an offer on a property, you should instruct a conveyancing solicitor so that you can proceed without delay. There are several stages to the legal conveyancing process that your solicitor will complete, including:
● receipt and review of the formal agreement to sell, plus the property information and fitting and contents forms● carrying out searches to confirm the property’s boundaries and any other essential information● arranging a completion date● transferring your deposit payment and mortgage funds● compiling the completion statement, transfer deed and mortgage deed● conducting exchange● managing any Stamp Duty Land Tax owed
As part of the conveyancing process, your solicitor will raise queries to uncover any legal issues that could affect the property. It is essential that any matters that could affect your decision to buy the property, or your lender’s decision to mortgage it, are addressed before contracts are exchanged.
Your solicitor will carefully review all the information they receive throughout conveyancing for possible problems and contact the seller’s conveyancer to clarify as needed. Once they are satisfied with their findings, they will report all the details back to you and confirm to your lender that the property is adequate security for their loan.
