Property Conveyancing Solicitors

Buying a house can be a stressful time. Whether you are a first time buyer, an experienced purchaser or an investor, the process is intricate and can be complicated. With this in mind, it is essential that you seek assistance from an experienced legal professional.

Buying a house without the help of a qualified conveyancer is a big risk that can result in a multitude of legal problems. It is important to understand the various stages of buying a house along with the conveyancing process.

What are the stages of buying a house?

  3. Make an offer
  4. The sale gets agreed (you will receive a Memorandum of Sale to confirm this)
  5. Find a conveyancing solicitor
  6. Commission a survey. Depending on the type of property you are buying, discuss the options on whether to have a Home Buyer’s Report or Full Structural Survey
  7. Complete your mortgage application
  8. Mortgage valuation (confirms that the property is worth the money you are lent by
    the mortgage lender)
  9. The conveyancing process is carried out – see this document for information on the
    conveyancing process
  10. When all investigations have been completed you will sign the documents, agree on a
    completion date and exchange contracts
