Understanding the Conveyancing Process

  1. The first step to conveyancing is instructing a solicitor

This is usually followed by receipt of a client care letter. This is to help you make an informed decision, understand your responsibilities and due costs. The CCL sets out how much you will pay for our conveyancing service as well as terms of business.

Our moving home solicitors in Southampton are highly experienced and will ensure you are well-informed throughout the process.

You may need to send us funds for any searches or surveys you wish to have. Proof of identity checks are standard and required procedures and will need to be provided by the client.

  1. Draft Contract

If you are selling your property, your property solicitor will prepare the draft contract to be sent to the buyer’s conveyancing solicitor.

If you are the buyer in the transaction, we will obtain the draft contract on your behalf.

  1. Obtaining deeds from Land Registry

Your Solicitor will need to obtain title deeds as required by the Land Registry. Information on the amount of an outstanding mortgage is also required.

  1. Authorising Property Searches

Property searches are very important because they help identify potential problems with your property. There are various searches such as planning, environmental, flood risk and water and drainage, each providing you with information about your property.

  1. Sending your property report

Once all the searches are done, you will be sent a detailed report of your property as well as your mortgage offer.

  1. Transfer deposit

You will be asked to send us a per cent of the purchase price if you are buying a property. The deposit is needed for exchange of contracts.

  1. Arranging a completion date

On exchange of contracts, the deposit will be sent to your seller’s solicitor and your mortgage lender will pay your mortgage advance.

  1. Moving Day

If you are a buyer, you will collect your keys from the estate agents.

For clients requesting removal van services, our team at David Ebert can assist you.
