What length of time does it take the conveyancing solicitor to exchange contracts all of the legal work for a maisonette in an Edwardian property?
Completion can take anywhere between 3 weeks and twelve weeks, which can be affected by various factors, for example the speed of the vendor's conveyancing solicitor, or whether the property is leasehold, Freehold or share of freehold. Our highly conveyancing solicitors are very results-orientated you moving home as rapidly as realistically possible.
When should we speak to a solicitor?
The short answer is, earlier is preferable, as conveyancing involves a number of tasks which may begin very early in the process. A number of sources advocate holding off instruction until an offer is accepted, but doing so will put you at a disadvantage compared to better prepared buyers, or if your buyer decides to pull out due to delays.
When should I book a removals firm?
It’s very tempting to get wrapped in the excitement of moving home and wanting to get everything sorted out and in the diary. But, if you book a removals firm too early, prior to the exchange of contracts (when the date and time of completion is legally set), you risk the possibility that the date might change, thereby having to pay a fee to the removals firm to change the plans.
There is nothing stopping you in contacting a selection of firms to get a quote for removal and to negotiate the possibility of pencilling a date in but ensure you obtain agreement that this is subject to change and confirmation.
Is the buyer or seller responsible for the searches?>
It is you, as the buyer, who is responsible for checking that all is well with the property you are buying. This is why your conveyancing solicitor will order a set of standard searches (Local Authority, Water and Drainage, Environmental, and Chancel Repair – these are also the searches requited by your mortgage lender), plus additional searches dependent on the property, recommendations from the surveyor in the survey report, and the location and history of the area.
