What is the process involved for conveyancing?
Generally speaking, the conveyancing process involves 9 stages.
Here’s a breakdown of what the 9-step process will look like.
Stage 1- Your conveyancing solicitor will acquire the contract package through the seller’s solicitor while your bid on the property is accepted. The bank will approve the mortgage once the valuer has reviewed the property. You then need to set a date for a survey to be performed by a regulated Chartered Surveyor.
Stage 2- Your conveyancing solicitor will receive your mortgage proposal and conduct all relevant local authority searches.
Stage 3- Your conveyancing solicitor will examine the contract package, outcomes of the local authority searches and the mortgage proposal before relaying the necessary details to you. You will consult on completion dates before arranging a date with the seller’s conveyancing provider. Your mortgage provider will be informed of the most suitable completion date. You will then need to examine the information your conveyancing solicitor shares with you making sure to ask any relevant questions before signing the contract and returning it to your provider.
Stage 4 – Your conveyancing solicitor will notify the seller’s solicitor of your desire to move forward with exchanging contracts. You will then need to send the deposit to your conveyancing solicitor.
Stage 5- Your conveyancing solicitor will exchange contracts with the seller’s conveyancing provider. The deposit is then sent to the seller’s conveyancer.
Stage 6- Your conveyancing solicitor will create the completion statement and dispatch this to you. They will conduct priority searches and request that you organise building insurance.
Stage 7- Your conveyancing solicitor will draft the transfer deed. You will need to examine, sign and return the transfer deed.
Stage 8- Your conveyancing solicitor will dispatch the completed transfer deed to the seller’s conveyancing solicitor and ask your mortgage lender for the finances.
Stage 9- Your conveyancing solicitor will transfer the payment for the property (less the deposit) to the seller’s conveyancer and obtain the title deeds, transfer deeds and evidence that any delinquent mortgages have been redeemed. When the seller’s solicitor advises you to do so, you collect the keys and begin moving in.
