  • if crucial documents where we have previously requested from you have not been provided

    Our PRocess

    Purchases & Sales

    Stage 1

    Taking Instructions

    At this stage your solicitor will establish contact and collect the relevant documents and information from everyone involved to get the process started.

    Stage 2

    Pre-Contract

    This is where your solicitor does their due diligence. On a purchase they perform searches on the property as well as reviewing the deeds and related paperwork to make sure you know exactly what you’re getting into. If they catch anything out of the ordinary, they will discuss it with you and work out how to move forward. When you’re selling a property they will draft the contract and respond to the buyers solicitors’ queries.

    Once all enquiries are satisfied they will invite you to sign the contract deed and if purchasing provide them with your deposit.

    Stage 3

    Exchanging Contracts

    At the point where contracts are exchanged the sale and purchase of the property becomes binding on all parties and a deposit is paid and a completion date agreed. The ‘completion date’ is when the purchase monies are paid in full and ownership of the property is transferred.

    Stage 4

    Completion

    This is the day that the transfer of ownership is completed. Solicitors will confirm the transfer of funds due, mortgages are redeemed, and the keys are released from your estate agents – congratulations on your new home!

    Stage 5

    Post Completion

    Following completion your solicitor will set about arranging removal of mortgages on a sale and the payment of the SDLT or  LLL tax due, and the registration of the transfer of property with the Land Registry.

    Mortgages & Re-Mortgages

    Stage 1

    Reviewing the Mortgage

    When it comes to mortgages your solicitor is required to review the offer as well as the other property documents (e.g. deeds). They’ll check over your mortgage offer and make sure all the conditions are met. They may have to carry out some searches on the property at this point to satisfy your mortgage lender.

    Stage 2

    Arranging Completion

    Once your lender and you are content with the offer and that conditions are being met you sign the Mortgage Deed. Your solicitor then gets an up-to-date settlement figure for your existing mortgage and they set a date to transfer all of the funds.

    Stage 3

    Completion

    On the day the funds are transferred to the solicitor from your new lender they will settle any existing mortgages and transfer any left over money to you. Finally, they register your new mortgage at the Land Registry.
