How does the conveyancing process work in Eynsham?
Included in the conveyancing process, there are three core stages:
- Offer and acceptance
- Exchange of contracts
When a buyer accepts a property offer, both parties enter into a contract. However, it’s important to recognise that this contract will not be legally binding until both the buyer and the seller have signed and exchanged the document.
A variety of property checks need to be carried out by the buyer and their solicitor. This is to ensure that the property is as advertised and may include checks like:
- Reviewing property information provided by the seller and making further enquiries if necessary (done by the conveyancing solicitor)
- Conducting conveyancing property searches, such as local authority checks (done by the conveyancing solicitor)
- Carrying out an independent survey (done by the buyer)
If they need to, the buyer will also use this stage to apply for a mortgage.
If both the buyer and the seller are still happy to proceed after all the necessary checks have been made, they will sign and exchange the contract. This is now considered legally binding and will cost a financial penalty if broken.
The final stage of the conveyancing process is called completion. This is where a transfer deal is submitted to the HM Land Registry to make the transaction official. The seller will then be required to vacate the property.
How long does conveyancing take in Eynsham?
The length of a conveyancing transaction can vary dramatically. Each case comes with its own unique challenges making it difficult to pinpoint the exact length of time the conveyancing process will take to complete. However, a straightforward conveyancing process is known to take between 12-14 weeks to complete after the initial offer is accepted and solicitors are brought on board.
In this situation, delays are often unavoidable, but the solicitor handling your transaction will be sure to provide support and keep you updated throughout.
What searches are involved in conveyancing in Eynsham?
Before you buy an Eynsham property, a range of conveyancing searches needs to be carried out. This is done to ensure there are no underlying problems that will become issues later on.
During this process, three key types of conveyancing searches will be considered:
- Local authority checks – to check the surrounding area for planning, pollution, highway pollution or other related issues
- Environmental searches – to check for issues such as flooding or land contamination
- Water and drainage searches – to check matters such as water and drainage access
Your solicitor may feel that more checks are needed, and, in this case, they will let you know promptly.
