Should I accept an offer on my home if I haven’t found one to buy?
From your prospective buyer’s standpoint, they are not going to want to wait around for you to find somewhere to move to necessarily, meaning that they might drop out of the process to look for a property that is more readily available. However, you might want to have the discussion with your estate agent as to the best way to manage this as part of the process of putting your house on the market.
It’s not always going to be easy for everyone in the chain to have everything lined up from mortgage offers, sale price agreements, solicitors, surveys and so on. Therefore, you can be honest and tell your prospective buyer that, while you’re accepting the price, you haven’t completed your part in the chain; if they are unhappy with this, your other option is to consider a short-term rental or moving in with friends temporarily to protect the sale.

How could the sale conveyancing process in Axbridge require months?
The conveyancing process will sometimes be held up. Homeward Legal do our best to diminish their effect wherever it is feasible by driving the transaction forward.
When should I find a solicitor to handle our transaction?
If you use a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the sooner you instruct a firm, the better, as there are several tasks that can be carried out very early in the process. Early instruction of a firm for a purchase means that you will the details of your Axbridge solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, documents can be prepared earlier, considerably accelerating the whole process.
Which individual searches should my Axbridge conveyancing solicitor do on a Axbridge flat?
The common conveyancing procedure is to obtain the following Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW), Environment Search and Tin Mining Search and, depending on certain criteria, less common searches, which may include a Official Search of whole without priority.
In respect of the major flooding in Sept 2012 in South West England we are concerned that flood searches won't be detailed enough?
Property conveyancing searches conducted by a solicitor in Axbridge will include the more detailed search (Landmark) if required.
You can always contact a neighbour of the property for extra local history.
Are the doctors/dentists/schools oversubscribed in the area I want to move to?
Although your conveyancing solicitor may have some personal knowledge of these critical factors, they are not part of the conveyancing process, so will not form part of the contract.
If aspects such as how likely you’ll get into a surgery or school are important to you, it is worth factoring this in at an early stage when you are researching the areas into which you want to move. You can also glean some facts from the estate agent representing properties where you want to move, too. You might also like to contact the surgeries or schools for further information.
