Fast Conveyancing Tips

Let your mortgage lender know if you are needing to work to a deadline.

If you are using a mortgage to purchase your home in Alton and want to get completed quickly, your mortgage lender should be able to advise you on whether or not this is possible. This could influence your mortgage lender and the mortgage product itself.

Taking a mortgage out can be a protracted process, especially since the Mortgage Market Review introduced greater restrictions, so it is important to get your valuation completed as soon as you can. This can be ordered via your bank or mortgage adviser and it can take around 2 weeks to receive the valuation. Please note the mortgage valuation and a building survey are two different things.

Conveyancing Costs in Alton

The solicitors' fees for buying a home vary dramatically depending on whether you Conveyancing-Costs.pngapproach an online conveyancing solicitor, a high street conveyancer or a solicitor introduced by your estate agent. 

The actual conveyancing costs, outside of the legal work, should be fixed as they are set including:

For buyers: stamp duty, land registration, property searches, ID searches and leasehold charges (if buying a leasehold property).

For sellers: office copies, title plan and management information (if selling a leasehold property).

It is important to make sure when budgeting the costs of moving home that you factor in all of the above conveyancing costs and ensure you get a fixed fee conveyancing quote from your chosen solicitor or conveyancer.

Which property searches do you need?

Your new house in Alton may be your ideal home, but you wouldn't want to invest a large amount of money to later find there could be something wrong with it. That is why we recommend booking searches to investigate any potential risks or threats to your property and its surrounding area. These could be preservation orders, flood risks, radon gas seepage, drainage issues or liability to pay the church for repairs.Environmental Search

We always recommend that you book searches from the East Hampshire District Council. You should, at the very least, book these four: local authority, drainage, environment and chancel repair. 

It is possible that these searches will flag up suggested additional searches such as HS2, flood and mining reports. Your solicitor can advise you on this.
