Whether you are a first-time buyer, second-stepper or a buy-to-let landlord, purchasing a home is a complex process and there is a lot that needs to be taken into consideration.
The same goes when it comes to selling a property – and having a conveyancer you can trust is often the key to a smooth and successful transaction.
First things first, anyone purchasing a home needs to get their deposit together and secure an agreement in principle for their mortgage.
Once you have made an offer on your desired property and this has been accepted by the seller, the conveyancing process can begin.
This starts with you supplying evidence of your identity and proof of the source of your deposit funds to your solicitor, who will then liaise with the seller’s conveyancer and carry out a number of important searches and questionnaires – which are all vital to the home-buying or moving process.
Jackie Prior, an Associate Director with Mander Hadley, who specialises in conveyancing, said: “Many people overlook the importance of appointing a trusted and experienced solicitor when it comes to conveyancing – and this can lead to no end of delays and other problems throughout the transaction process.
“Your conveyancer will always be one of your key contacts throughout the home-moving process, keeping you up to date with your transaction, reporting on search results, property titles and questionnaires and handling your deposit funds, Stamp Duty payments and more. They’ll even handle registering the ownership of your property at the Land Registry.”
“Appointing someone you can trust to carry out such sensitive work is vital, as is ensuring that your conveyancer can provide practical and clear advice from offer acceptance right through to completion.
“Equally important is ensuring that you are dealing with somebody with the local knowledge and experience to help resolve any unforeseen issues which may arise,” she said.
