Finding a solicitor

If you’re a first time buyer, you won’t have to worry about selling a property before you can move. But you will still need to find an experienced solicitor to carry out the conveyancing on the property you want to buy.

  • The job of a solicitor or conveyancer comprises the following tasks:

  • Obtaining the deeds which prove it legally belongs to the person you are buying from.

  • Researching just where the property's legal boundaries lie and passing this information on to you.

  • Preparing a fixtures, fittings and contents list which makes it clear whether or not things like carpets or kitchen appliances are included in the purchase price. This enquiry form will also ask the vendor whether they are aware of any material, structural or other defects to the property that you should know about.

  • Advising you on a draft contract for sale, prepared by the seller's solicitor, setting out the terms of your purchase.

  • Carrying out a search of local planning information to uncover details of any upcoming developments, such as a new road, which could affect the property's value.

  • Agreeing a date for completing which suits both you and the property's seller.

Conveyancing may well take longer than you had imagined, but don't be tempted to rush matters. Your new home is probably the most expensive thing you will ever buy, so it is important to be sure there are no loose ends.

If you would like us to recommend solicitors we have a panel of local and national solicitors we can instruct on your behalf. For a quote call 01202 802677 or email enquiries@nexmoney.co.uk
