Conveyancing process for buying a house

Step 1 – Conveyancing process for buying a house

If you would like us to step in and help you in the purchase of your next home, get in touch with us today. We will ask that you complete the initial paperwork, provide us with forms of identity and ensure funds are available for any searches you would like done.

Step 2 – Receive draft contract

The sender’s solicitor will send us the draft contract and other related documents such as the electronic deeds and the property forms.

Step 3 – Searches and investigation of title

We will take the time to go through the paperwork we have received. We will also conduct the searches that you have requested and verify the title deed of the property. If we have any questions during this process, we will forward them to the seller’s solicitor for answers.

Step 4 – Report

After we have the results of the searches and the investigation of the documents, we will send you a report. It will include the completion statement and your mortgage offer.

Step 5 – Signing

If you’re satisfied with the report that was sent to you and the results obtained, a signing will be set up during which all the parties in the transaction should agree on a completion date. You will then be required to send your deposit to us.

Step 6 – Exchange of contracts

The next stage is the exchange of contracts which is critical because it makes the terms of the transaction legally binding. After the exchange, we will send the deposit to the seller’s solicitor and request for a mortgage advance to be paid by your lender.

Step 7 – Completion of Conveyancing process

On the ‘moving day’ we will forward the remaining balance to the seller’s solicitor. The keys will be left with the estate agent and you can pick them up once the money has been received by the seller’s solicitors.

Conveyancing process for selling a house

Step 1 – Conveyance process for selling a house (start)

To sell your house, we will need to start with a meeting and discuss the details of the property. We may take some notes that will help us start the process. You will be requested to provide us with forms of identity, fill out the initial paperwork and the protocol forms. If office copies will be required, we will ask that you make the funds available for this.

Step 2 – Contact with your mortgage lender

We will get in touch with your mortgage lender to provide us with the current title deed for the property and also a statement to show how much of the mortgage is yet to be paid.

Step 3 – Obtain documents from the Land Registry

We will need the Land Registry to allow us to obtain the most recent official copies for the property.

Step 4 – Preparation of draft contract

We will prepare the draft contract and send it to the buyer’s conveyancy solicitors in Nuneaton. We will also attach other documents like the electronic deeds and the property forms.

Step 5 – Enquiries raised by buyer’s solicitor

The buyer’s solicitor will have time to go through the documents we have sent. During the investigation period, if there are any questions, the solicitor will direct them to us.

Step 6 – Agree on a completion date

Once the buyer’s solicitor has received all the information and results, a signing will be set up and a completion date will be agreed upon by all the parties. The buyer will be required to send the deposit to their solicitor to arrange for the next step.

Step 7 – Exchange of contracts

Exchanging contracts makes the transaction legally binding. After the exchange, the deposit will be transferred to us and we will obtain a final redemption statement from your lender.

Step 8 – Conveyancing process for selling a house (finish)

We will receive the full balance for the property and ask you to leave the key with the estate agent. With the money received, we will offset the previous mortgage along with any other related costs and send the balance to you.
