What is the Process for the Buyer?

In the event that you require any additional information or clarification from ourselves, please do not hesitate to contact a member of our team.

There are 3 stages involved in buying or selling a property: agreeing the sale; exchanging of contracts; and completion. At each stage both buyer's and seller's solicitors have specific tasks to carry out.

Stage 1: Agree the Sale

The buyers solicitor will request payment for expenses; receive the contract from the seller's solicitor and make any necessary additional enquiries; carry out local authority searches; ask the buyer to agree the property information form; receive the mortgage offer from the lender; and reports to the buyer with the contract asking for the deposit.

Stage 2: Exchange of Contracts

After this stage, the contract becomes legally binding, i.e the buyer must buy and the seller must sell. The buyer's solicitor will:send the contract and deposit to the seller's solicitor; prepare the transfer and mortgage deed, obtaining the buyer's signature;arranges and prepares any final searches; and request their fee.

Stage 3: Completion

The buyer's solicitor will:send the balance to the seller's solicitor; receive the deeds; register the transfer with land registry; and send the title deeds to the lender.
