The Conveyancing process explained

What does your solicitor do???

The rough guide to the legal process

Choose a Solicitor – Select a Solicitor based on the best price, location & customer reviews. Once you are happy to proceed, instruct the Solicitor.

Solicitors Client Care Pack – Your solicitor will send you a client care pack and you will need to complete & return the client care documentation & pay the search fees. You can then follow progress of your case on the tracking system.

Contract Requested – Your Solicitor requests a contract pack from the seller’s Solicitor & raises the appropriate enquiries.

Searches Ordered – Your Solicitor orders searches on the chosen property (Local Authority, Water & Drainage, Environmental, etc.)

Mortgage Offer Issued – Once you have received a mortgage offer from your Lender, we will make sure your Solicitor has a copy.

Searches and Replies Received – Once enquiries have been replied to & your Solicitor is satisfied, you will be asked to check & sign some key documents: Transfer deed, Mortgage deed, completion statement, report on title & the contract itself.

Deposit Required – Your Solicitor requests the mortgage funds from your Lender & prepares a completion statement. Once the funds are received, your Solicitor sends these to the seller’s Solicitor.

Exchange contracts – Your Solicitor arranges for your Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) to be paid to the UK Government.

Completion– Your Solicitor requests the mortgage funds from your Lender & prepares a completion statement. Once the funds are received, your Solicitor sends these to the seller’s Solicitor. The keys can now be released to you.
