MJR Solicitors Conveyancing Services
Putting your property on the market with your estate agent is the first step to finding a new home for you and your family. But the conveyancing process that follows any acceptance of an offer can be a daunting prospect, especially if you’re a first-time buyer. Our experienced conveyancing team at MJR Solicitors will be on hand to help you through every step of the process, ensuring all the documentation and legalities are taken care of for you.
What are the steps in conveyancing for residential sales?
While, on occasion, the conveyancing process can be lengthy, we always aim to make it smooth, fast, and as stress-free as possible for you. Here’s what the process can involve – from the sale being agreed to property searches and completion – and what we’ll do to make it happen for you.
When you instruct us to act for you after you’ve accepted an offer, we’ll carry out standard identity checks, ask you for your property’s title deeds, and the details of any mortgages on the title deeds. We’ll also send you documents to fill in, including a property information form and a current fixtures and fittings form, and ask you about your preferred completion date.
Contract and Exchange
Based on all the information, we’ll prepare a draft contract for you, alongside supporting information, and send it to your buyer’s conveyancing solicitor who will check it in detail. If they come back with any questions or queries, we’ll discuss them with you and answer on your behalf.
When both parties are happy, the contracts are signed and a completion date is agreed between you and the buyer. You’re then ready for the formal ‘exchange’ when you and the buyer are both legally committed to the sale.
Following your exchange, we’ll get a settlement figure on your existing mortgage if you have one. At the same time, your buyer’s solicitor will send us the sale transfer deeds which we’ll review in detail, ready for signing. Once we can confirm the sale funds have been transferred from your buyer, we’ll work with your estate agent to arrange for the keys to be handed over as the final step to completion.
