How does the conveyancing process work in Lymington?
The three stages of conveyancing are as follows:
- Offer and acceptance
- Exchange of contracts
Once an offer has been accepted, the buyer and the seller will enter into a legal contract. The contract is not legally binding until both have signed and exchanged.
The buyer is responsible for carrying out various checks with the support of their lawyer. These checks may include:
- 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)
At this point, the buyer may need to apply for a mortgage, depending on the circumstances.
After the property checks are finished, the parties will exchange contracts and sign, if both are happy to continue with the deal. At this stage, the transaction will be considered legally binding, and it will not be possible to void the transaction, without paying a penalty.
On completion, the transaction is official, and a transfer deed will be provided to HM Land Registry, at which point the seller must sell the property.
How long does conveyancing take in Alton?
Conveyancing transactions vary in time-frame, depending on the circumstances. On average a simple case will take around 12-14 weeks to complete.
Some transactions may be delayed, and if you experience this, your lawyer will ensure that you are well-informed and kept up to date.
What searches are involved in conveyancing in Lymington?
