Conveyancing In Whitton Q & A's
For a fast completion to buy a £967,000 property, what can we do to accelerate our transaction?
Crucial to a fast completion is to employing a proactive and experienced conveyancing solicitor. There are a number of tasks you as the buyer could do to accelerate the process. These include:
- arranging your mortgage offer
- asking for property searches to be ordered immediately
- answering any queries raised by the conveyancing solicitor as soon as possible
Would acquiring a home buyers survey be necessary when purchasing a house in Whitton?
It is advised that buyers order a survey if you are intending to buy in Whitton. There can be many defects that have a negative impact on a property. These include severe weathering and chimney defects.
Do we need to get a chancel search when my partner and I are purchasing a apartment close to a church in Whitton?
Potentially amounting to over £100,000 in repair cost obligations, chancel liability should be considered by buyers of Whitton property likely to be affected. After the passing of an Act in 2002, interest over any affected land must be registered by October 2013. Whitton church properties include St Augustine of Canterbury, St John the Baptist, St Mary and St Philip & St James.
How long does it take to move house?
Those new to buying property are often surprised by how long the process can take from start to finish. There are several factors that come into play when determining how long your transaction will take from having your offer accepted to moving into your new home: The number of people involved in the chain (the shorter it is, the easier to manage and therefore shorter in duration potentially), problems with one or more buyers in the chain getting a mortgage offer, communication, management and many others.
The greatest time that needs to be set aside is for the conveyancing, which is the complex legal process of transferring ownership of the property from seller to buyer, replicated along the entire chain. Typically, the conveyancing can take an average of between eight and twelve weeks to complete, so, in reality, you should be thinking in terms of months.
However, if you appoint a results-focused and proactive solicitor, who will do everything possible to reduce the length of time, including talking to everyone involved in the chain, pushing for swift return of forms and documentation, and using modern technology to drive the process forward, you will stand a better chance of the conveyancing being a lot shorter. And the earlier you appoint them, the quicker they can get started on your transaction.

The local agent has offered the conveyancing. Will it be cheaper to use this solicitor?
Both agents and mortgage brokers will often recommend a conveyancer. However, if the agent is paid a fee by the solicitor, an agent may select the conveyancer who pays out the highest referral fee, not the law firm with the best reputation.
When is it wise to arrange a conveyancer?
In simple terms, instructing as soon as possible is wise, as conveyancing involves a number of tasks that can be performed straight away. Instructing your solicitor earlier for a purchase may mean that you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, documents can be prepared earlier, considerably accelerating the whole process.
