If you are buying a property and you will be taking out a mortgage, you should obtain a mortgage offer in principle. This is your lender’s confirmation that they will lend you a specified sum of money. You can apply for this prior to finding a property to buy. Once you have an offer accepted, you can notify the lender of the details and they will usually be able to issue a formal mortgage offer more quickly than they would if you had not already gone through the application process.
While a mortgage offer in principle is not a guarantee that you will be provided with a loan, it will speed the process up and give you the opportunity to deal with any potential issues early on. It also gives you a firm idea of the amount you will be able to borrow.
Whether you are buying or selling, you are strongly advised to instruct a solicitor as soon as you can. This can be before you have a buyer in place or before you have found a property to buy.
If you would like us to act for you, we will let you have the initial paperwork to be completed and verify your identity so that we can open a file.
If you are selling a property, we will provide you with the property information and fixtures and fittings forms that you will be asked to fill in for the buyer. We will also obtain your title deeds in readiness so that we can issue contract papers as soon as you have a buyer. This means that their solicitor in turn will be able to start work at once, raising enquiries and applying for searches.
If you want to complete quickly, one of the best tips is to use a solicitor with in-depth conveyancing experience. Property law can be complex and if difficulties arise, a conveyancer with good expertise is likely to have dealt with similar situations before and will know how to deal efficiently with the issue.
At Lockings Solicitors, our team have a high level of experience and will always work to find a solution quickly to avoid an unnecessary delay.
We provide our clients with a secure conveyancing portal to use if they wish. This means that you will be able to see what stage your transaction has reached, what information we need and what you need to do next. This is a very quick and convenient way for you to manage your conveyancing and can be particularly helpful if you want to complete quickly.
Waiting for replies to local searches can often cause a delay. They are generally provided by local authorities who are often swamped with requests and on occasion you may have to wait weeks.
At Lockings, we use an insurance-backed private search firm to carry out local searches on our behalf. This is not only quicker and has a reliable time-scale, the results are also usually more accurate.
It goes without saying that if prompt completion is a priority, it is important to respond promptly to any queries you receive. This includes questions from your mortgage lender and any questions raised by your buyer’s solicitor if you are selling a property.
For our part, we always respond quickly to communication, whether this is from you, the other side’s solicitor, your mortgage lender or your estate agent. This goes a long way to avoiding delays and ensuring that a transaction keeps moving forward.
The length of time taken to complete a conveyancing transaction can vary and will also depend on other parties in the chain. On average, a transaction takes around eight to twelve weeks. If a newbuild property is being purchased, there is likely to be a tight deadline to be met. We are used to working to meet deadlines and we always do all we can to make sure we are ready to exchange by the date given.
If you have a conveyancing transaction that is time-sensitive, please feel free to give us a call and we will be able to discuss likely timescales with you.
We have a good reputation for meeting and exceeding client expectations and you can see what some of our clients have said about us by seeing our reviews.
