Insider Conveyancing Tips

Don’t set a deadline

Deadlines are rarely met and often lead to a stressful move. You can only control your side and can’t control the speed of the seller, their solicitor, the council or even the chain above. Have a goal in mind, but be ready to let it slide; otherwise, you’ll drive yourself up the wall! We tell you when each step has been actioned, what to expect, and what you need to do next.

Know who is in your chain

Finding out who is in your chain is paramount. Are you buying out of probate? Has the seller moved into a care home? Are they buying another property? Is there a new build at the top of the chain? Your side of the purchase can be delayed by any of these scenarios outside your control.

Take agent pressure with a pinch of salt

The estate agent may pressure you to meet a faster deadline than is achievable. The best thing to do is stand your ground and push back. Threats of a new buyer or higher offers rarely pan out, and it is in everyone’s interest to focus on finishing off the final few weeks instead of starting over and waiting for another 12.

How To Buy A House
Without Killing Anyone

This book could be the difference between every mover’s dream, buying and moving into your new home stress free, or, stress, missed deadlines, legal disasters, building defects, and possibly the collapse of the whole transaction. (Costing you a small fortune, a head full of grey hairs, and, driving you to threaten the life of your solicitor, lender, co-owners, family, partner, or some combination of all five).

With more than two decades’ experience in the conveyancing sector and over 50,000 successful client moves under his belt, Andrew shares insider tips and advice to empower you as a buyer, giving you the tools to make the best decisions for your circumstances and ease the chaos.
