What is the conveyancing process?
The conveyancing process is the act of preparing the necessary documents in buying a residential property. This includes raising enquiries to decipher all relevant information regarding the property, as well as accepting a mortgage offer from a lender and exchanging contracts. While it can be done alone, instructing a specialist can reduce the time taken.
How long will it take?
While there is no guaranteed time frame, a straightforward property transaction usually takes between 6-8 weeks on average. This is usually down to the length of time it takes for a mortgage lender to issue an offer; or if the property is leasehold, how fast the seller is planning on moving out. If complications arise, the process might take 10-12 weeks, but it will rarely last longer than this.
At what stage can the buyer or seller pull out?
The buyer as well as the seller has the right to pull out of the transaction if they no longer wish to proceed at any point until the exchange of the contracts.
What exactly are searches?
Searches are the enquiries submitted to various relevant authorities to determine certain information about the property in question. This includes checking the legal title from the land registers, inspecting the regulation history of the property to determine any potential work needed, water and drainage searches as well as environmental searches. The information gained from these property searches are vital and can play a crucial role in a buyers decision to proceed with the purchase.
