Moving home in the New Year? Here’s how to speed up the Conveyancing process

If you are planning on moving home this new year, getting through the legal paperwork can seem endless, but there are ways to help shorten in the process.

Choosing the right expert Conveyancing solicitor is the most important step to speed up the Conveyancing process.

Communication with the other solicitors

There are numerous communications going back and forth between the solicitors which could lead to potential delays. A Conveyancing solicitor can cut down on this potential, as they will be aware of what kinds of issues are causing the delays and be able to suggest solutions.

Obtaining documents

You will need several documents, particularly for the property you are selling, including:

  • Title deeds
  • Property information form
  • Fitting and contents form
  • Energy performance certificate
  • Planning permission, building regulation certificates and any guarantees you may have

If the property is a leasehold, you will also need a copy of the lease and a Management Information Pack.

A Conveyancing solicitor will save time by advising what documents you require.

The contracts

Drawing up the contracts, can be done very quickly. However, a carelessly written contract could lead to errors and will almost certainly result in objections, either from you or from the other party, which may cause protracted negotiations.

If you are selling, your solicitor will be responsible for drafting the contract. An expert Conveyancing solicitor will be able to create the draft efficiently, and make any later amends to the contract if needs be.

The completion process

The completion process is complex, with various tasks to be carried out from lodging interest in the property, to ensuring all monies are paid to the relevant destinations on time.

Picking the right Conveyancing Solicitor will make sure the process runs smoothly, reducing the risk of long delays.
