How A Conveyancing Solicitor Can Ensure Smooth Process When Selling Your Home

Whatever your reason is for selling your home, know that it will be a long process, so it's crucial to employ the right people to help you. Today, we'll go through the legal side of selling your home.

What are the roles and responsibilities of conveyancing solicitors Ashford?

When we say conveyancing, this is a legal term for the process of transferring ownership of a property from the seller to the buyer. This process goes through several phases, and whether you're selling or buying property, it's crucial to find someone you can trust to guide you through the entire conveyancing process. They will guide you from the day an offer is given to the day you receive your keys to the new property.

How do you ensure a smooth process when selling your home?

First and foremost, hire the right conveyancing solicitors Ashford. Most people tend to get confused if they need a licensed conveyancer or a lawyer. While you can hire either of the two, do note that with a conveyancing solicitor, their line of work lies in property selling and buying. You may call them property lawyers, and so finding someone whose experience is more tailored to what you need will help smoothen the entire process.

Secondly, you'll need to provide them with all the necessary details about the transaction. This is often done either through a phone call or in person. You'll also need to authorize them on your behalf.

At this point, the conveyancing solicitor will then request a mortgage statement. Properties have mortgages on them, and your solicitor will then contact the mortgage provider to request a settlement statement. As the name suggests, this will include the amount left on the mortgage for repayment. This is important because the settlement statement also ensures your solicitor that you have enough funds to settle your debt. The settlement statement also provides the solicitor access to the current title deeds of your property.

Thirdly, your conveyancing solicitor is also responsible for obtaining any legal documents needed for the transaction. They will contact the Land Registry to request the latest date deeds or official copies of the property you are about to sell. You will then fill out these forms detailing all the information you have agreed to when selling the property.

After which, conveyancing solicitors Ashford will now draft the contract. This step usually lasts about a few days since it's a tedious task as the contract will outline all of the transaction's basic details, including important matters and the property's sale price.

They will then make inquiries. Once a completion date has been agreed on, then you're good to go. The completion date is the date when the ownership of the property will be officially transferred from the seller to the buyer.
