How does the conveyancing process work in Mansfield?
Whenever you buy or sell a home, there are three main stages to be aware of:
- Offer and acceptance
- Exchange of contracts
When an offer is accepted on a home, the buyer and seller agree to enter into a contract. Note that, at this stage, the transaction is not legally binding and either party can decide to pull out.
After an offer is accepted, the buyer should seek out as much information about the property as they can, with the assistance of their conveyancing solicitor. The information they seek could 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)
If required, the buyer will also need to apply for a mortgage at this stage.
Once the buyer is happy with the checks they have carried out, the contracts can be exchanged, at which point the transaction becomes legally binding. This means that, if either party pulls out, they are likely to incur a penalty – unless they have a valid reason for doing so.
Completion is when the purchase and sale is deemed to be official. At this point a transfer deed will be submitted to HM Land Registry and the seller will be required to leave the property.
How long does conveyancing take in Mansfield?
The time it takes to complete a conveyancing transaction will depend on a number of external factors. Under normal circumstances, you can expect a transaction to be completed in 12-14 weeks from the date the offer is accepted and conveyancing solicitors are instructed.
Every transaction has its unique challenges and intricacies, which means there could be delays the overall process. If this is likely to be the case, your solicitor will keep you informed.
What searches are involved in conveyancing in Mansfield?
Your conveyancer will carry out a number of checks when you are buying a home, known as conveyancing searches. These are carried out to assess whether there any problems that need to be addressed before the transaction goes ahead.
The three main types of checks are:
- 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
Depending on the type of property you are buying and where it is located, additional checks may be required. If this is likely to be the case, your conveyancing solicitor will inform you.
