The average time between instructing your conveyancer and completing your sale/purchase is 10-12 weeks but many matters can proceed quicker but some can take longer!
People usually opt to buy and sell a property simultaneously to avoid the risk and also the cost of owning more than one property. A lot of purchases will be dependent on a related sale completing simultaneously to ensure that they have the relevant funds to purchase. Unfortunately, the speed of the matter proceeding will be dictated by the slowest link in the chain.
When selling a property, you will need to budget for legal fees and also estate agent fees if there is an agent involved. If you are purchasing a property, then you need to budget for legal fees and disbursements. Disbursements are payments made by your conveyancer to others, such as HMRC for stamp duty, land registry fees and search fees. You should also budget for any valuation and survey fees involved with your mortgage, if applicable.
You should instruct your Conveyancer as soon as you decide to buy or sell a property. The sooner you instruct a Conveyancer, the sooner the Conveyancer can get on the front foot and open your file and provide initial paperwork i.e., terms and conditions for you to sign and return.
Prior to viewing properties, you should carry out initial research in relation to how much you can borrow and the different mortgages available. You can obtain a mortgage in principle from most lenders on the market before finding your desired property.
When buying and/or selling a property, you are required to provide identification. This is to enable your Conveyancer to ‘Know your Client’. Your Conveyancer is required to obtain satisfactory evidence of the identity of all clients to meet Money Launder Regulations. Identification will be required from every individual involved in the buying and/or selling of a property.
An exchange of contracts is the point your sale/purchase in which the seller and buyer agree to commit themselves to the matter. A completion date is agreed and written into the contract which then becomes legally binding. A completion date is the date in which you hand over / collect keys and vacate your existing property to move into your new property.
Knowing whether the property you are looking to buy if Freehold or Leasehold is critical as it does affect your ownership of the property.
When buying a Freehold property, you will own the property outright until you choose to sell the property. However, when buying a Leasehold property you own the right to occupy the property for a fixed period of time by virtue of the legal document known as a Lease.
You will usually have to pay ground rent to the freeholder and if you live in a flat, there is a high likelihood that you will be required to pay service/maintenance charges too. Your Conveyancer will report to you on the contents of the lease.
Your Conveyancer will organise three main searches to be carried out as part of the conveyancing purchase process. The searches are a local authority search, environmental search, and a drainage search.
If you are purchasing the property with the assistance of a mortgage, then the searches are required to satisfy your mortgage lender’s requirements. The results of the searches carried out will provide vital information about the property itself. They can be a factor in whether you should go ahead with your purchase or not.
