The 1st of May sees the marking of ‘New Homeowners Day’ – an opportunity for new buyers to celebrate their new property with the throwing of a housewarming party. Not just that, but it’s also an opportunity for potential buyers to think about planning for a purchase of their own – considering services such as residential conveyancing.
Whether you’re buying your first home or are thinking about selling and buying a new property, ensuring that you have all your legalities down will help to make the process as quick and stress-free as possible. Often, buyers aren’t aware of their obligations regarding conveyancing, which can lead to problems down the road.
Here, we’re going to outline the conveyancing process – and where you can find more information if you’re thinking about buying property yourself.
What is Residential Conveyancing?
Residential Conveyancing refers to the crucial step of legal acquisition (or ‘transfer’) of property from one owner to another. It involves many different professionals, such as solicitors, surveyors and estate agents who work together to ensure that everything goes smoothly from start to finish with no hiccups along the way. This is particularly important if say, you plan to sell the property in the future – there may be restrictions or problems that you wouldn’t be aware of if not professionally checked.
The Conveyancing Process
The conveyancing process starts when an offer on the house is accepted and finishes with receiving your keys. From the initial quote right through to the post-completion, the amount of time that it takes for this whole transaction can vary, but typically ranges from 8-12 weeks depending upon personal circumstances and whether the property is freehold or leasehold. Sometimes, the property conveyancing process can take much longer if there are any issues. It’s important to ensure each step of the paperwork is completed efficiently to not delay this crucial legal procedure.
The conveyancing process is a complex and time-consuming one. However, it's important to know all the key stages so you can have an idea of how much work will be required for each in order to make sure that nothing goes wrong during your purchase.
And this is where we can help. We deal with all the professional involved on your behalf and keep you updated along the process so you are in the loop.
