House hunting can be a long process, and sometimes, it feels like you will never find the perfect place in your price range. Unfortunately, the viewing stage is often the least stressful part of buying a house because, once you have found one, you need to deal with all of the legal aspects of the purchase. Buying a house is probably the biggest financial transaction that you will ever make, so there is no room for error. That’s why it’s so important that you have an experienced property purchase solicitor to guide you through the process.
Our experienced conveyancing solicitors are here to help you at every stage of the process, all the way from pre-contract up to completion and beyond. A property purchase solicitor will take the stress out of buying a house by handling all of the complicated legal aspects, so you can focus on the important things, like settling into your new home and deciding how you want to renovate it.
When you buy property, you are responsible for ensuring that the property is in good condition before you buy. If you do not take the necessary steps to check the property over and you discover issues after the paperwork goes through, you have no legal recourse. But the right property sales solicitor will make sure that doesn’t happen. Once you have found a property that you love and agreed on a price with the seller, there are a number of legal procedures that need to be followed before the purchase can be finalised.
First, searches will be carried out to make sure that there are no underlying issues with the property and it is in good condition. Next, your property purchase solicitor will draw up all of the contracts and review them. Once this is completed, the sale can move forward as planned.
Your property purchase solicitor will make sure that your interests, and the interests of your mortgage lender, are protected throughout the process and all of your legal obligations are met.
The process of buying a house is different every time because there are a lot of different factors to consider. On average, it will take a property purchase solicitor 6 to 12 weeks to perform all necessary checks, draw up contracts, and guide you to completion. However, it’s important to remember that the length of time that it takes is also depends on the other parties involved, your mortgage application and the nature of the property itself.
