How does the conveyancing process work in Sandy?
The conveying process is divided into three stages:
- Offer and acceptance
- Exchange of contracts
The process begins when an offer is accepted by the seller of the property. Two parties enter a non-legal agreement and should then instruct solicitors to organise the next phase.
The buyer’s conveyancer will then arrange property searches and a valuation, all of which will look for any risks associated with the property that could affect the price of the property and its saleability. These checks 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 the checks come back fine, both parties can sign and exchange contracts, which is when the agreement becomes legally binding.
The end result is completion when the seller vacates the property and the keys are handed over to the new owner.
Of course, this is just a simple overview of the process, and there’s much more involved in the background, which your conveyancer will be responsible for organising.
How long does conveyancing take in Sandy?
Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee how long the conveyancing process will take and for your property transaction to complete. The timeline can be affected by a number of different factors, such as the length of the property chain you’re involved in and the findings from your property searches. Standard transactions take around 13 weeks to complete from the point at which conveyancers are instructed, and if we believe that your transaction will take longer, we will let you know.
What searches are involved in conveyancing in Sandy?
When buying a property in England, your conveyancer is required to organise a number of searches to assess the property and the local area and to uncover any potential risks. These checks usually involve:
- 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
