Our conveyancing fees – how much does our conveyancing cost in Tuxford?
We are able to offer fixed fees for the majority of our conveyancing services. You will have a clear understanding of how much your work will cost from the outset and, in the event that additional fees are required, you will be informed well in advance.
Additional costs associated with the conveyancing process are known as disbursements. Examples of disbursements may include conveyancing searches or registering transactions at HM Land Registry.
Tax is something you will need to take into consideration whenever you intend to complete a property transaction. For example, you may have to pay Stamp Duty Land Tax or Capital Gains Tax. If this applies to your transaction, your conveyancer will help you calculate exactly how much tax is owed and file the return with HMRC.
How does the conveyancing process work in Tuxford?
There are three main stages to the conveyancing process that you should be aware of:
- Offer and acceptance
- Exchange of contracts
When a buyer and seller agree on an offer, they will agree to enter into a contract that sets out the precise details of the transaction. At this stage, both parties have merely agreed to enter into a contract, which means the transaction is not legally binding and pulling out without receiving a penalty is still a possibility.
Once an offer is accepted, the buyer will work with their conveyancer to carry out a number of different checks on the property. This will be to ensure that there are no issues with the property that need to be immediately addressed. Examples of 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)
The buyer will also apply for a mortgage at this stage (if needed).
Once the checks have been completed and the buyer is content, contracts will be signed and exchanged. When this has been completed, the transaction is legally binding and neither party will be in a position to pull out without facing repercussions.
Completion is when the transaction is deemed official. A transfer deed is submitted to HM Land Registry and the seller is required to leave the property.
How long does conveyancing take in Tuxford?
Every conveyancing transaction is unique, and has its own set of challenges, which means it’s not always possible to provide an exact timeframe. Under normal circumstances, you can expect a transaction to take between 12-14 weeks to reach completion from the date conveyancers are instructed, but this can easily be extended if there are delays somewhere along the property chain.
If delays appear likely to occur, your conveyancer will discuss the options available to you in detail.
What searches are involved in conveyancing in Tuxford?
If you are buying a property in Tuxford, your conveyancer will complete several searches on the property. This will be to make sure that there are no issues which have not been previously reported.
The three main types of conveyancing checks are:
- Local authority checks – to check the surrounding area for planning, pollution, highway 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
If any other checks are necessary, your conveyancer will let you know. This will usually depend on where the property in question is located and what type of property it is.
