Buying

Buying

As soon as your offer has been accepted, your estate agents will send us a copy of the Memorandum of Sale, giving us the details of the property, the offer and the seller.
It’s likely that you have already spoken with a mortgage provider and possibly even received an offer in principle – a statement to say how much the mortgage company is prepared to lend you. Now it’s time to turn the offer in principle into a solid offer. You’ll need to let the mortgage company know that you have made an offer, how much the offer is and give them the property details.

You might also want to consider getting a survey done. This will vary in price depending on whether you opt for a basic survey, known as a homebuyer’s report, or a full structural survey (which is strongly recommended if you’re looking at an old or listed building).

We will request the contract pack from the seller’s conveyancer and we will also order any relevant searches e.g. Local Authority, Drainage, Environmental or Coal mining. We will raise enquiries with the seller’s conveyancer, and we will send you a report. This will contain information about the title and a preliminary draft of the contract for you to sign. You should read the contract carefully, sign it and return it to us.

When your mortgage lender makes an offer, they will send us a copy. This is so we can check through any special conditions and verify whether the details held by the lender are correct. We will send you a report and some paperwork for signing.

Once any outstanding issues with the searches, mortgage and enquiries are resolved, we're going to need your deposit.

Usually the contract will stipulate that a deposit of 10 per cent of the purchase price passes from the buyer’s conveyancer to the seller’s conveyancer. This is a financial deterrent to stop buyers pulling out of a deal between exchange and completion. If a buyer pulled out at this stage they would forfeit the full 10 per cent deposit to the seller.

If you are buying and selling simultaneously we would normally use the deposit received from your purchaser to pass on to your seller, and the same will happen all the way along the chain. Even if a reduced deposit is paid on exchange, the full ten per cent becomes immediately payable in the unlikely event of completion being delayed.

When the contracts have been exchanged you have reached the point of no return. You are legally obliged to buy your new home and your seller is legally obliged to sell it to you, on the set completion date.

On the day of completion we will send the balance of the purchase price, including the money received from your mortgage lender, to the seller’s conveyancer by telegraphic transfer. Once this has been received by them we will call you to let you know that you can pick up the keys (which are usually with the estate agent).

Selling

Selling

As soon as a sale has been agreed, your estate agents will send us a copy of the Memorandum of Sale, giving us the details of the offer and the buyer. If we've already got your completed starter pack we'll obtain a copy of the title and send a draft contract to the buyer's conveyancer. We'll also a send a copy of the draft contract for you to sign.

You need to sign this copy of the draft contract and return it to us. If there is anybody else living with you who isn't named on the title, they will need to sign the contract too. This is to show that they agree to move out on completion.

If you have a mortgage on your existing property, we will contact the lender to obtain a redemption statement. And if you have any additional loans secured on your existing property, we'll also need to contact those lenders.

Once the buyer's conveyancer has checked through the draft contract, and the associated paperwork, they will contact us to raise enquiries. We will answer their questions from the information you provide in the starter pack. But we might need to give you a ring to discuss some of the questions.

When all the details are sorted we will agree a completion date and will exchange contracts with the buyer's conveyancer. This is when it all becomes legally binding. Once contracts are exchanged both seller and buyer are legally obliged to complete on the date set.

If your buyer has paid a deposit this can't be released to you until completion. Depending on how the contract was negotiated, this deposit will be held by us or by the buyer's conveyancer.

Now that we have a completion date, we can get an exact final redemption statement from your existing mortgage lender (and for any other loans you might have secured on the property).

On the completion date, the buyer's conveyancer will send us the balance of the sale price by telegraphic transfer. As soon as the funds reach our account, the transaction has completed and you will need to be out of the property. We will send your signed transfer and title deeds (if there are any) to your buyer's conveyancer.

We will pay the balance outstanding on your existing mortgage (and repay any other loans you might have secured on the property). At this point we will take our fees out of the proceeds and also pay your estate agent's fees. The next working day, we will send the balance (whatever's left from the sale price after redeeming loans and mortgages, and paying the legal fees) by telegraphic transfer to your designated account.

Remortgaging

Remortgaging

After we have received your instructions to act we will check the legal issues and title to your property to ensure it offers a satisfactory security for your new lender, as this is the essence of a mortgage.

We will also check the amounts outstanding on any current mortgage registered on the property as these will have to be repaid at completion. The amounts will be confirmed with you.

Usually, we will not carry out Local, Drainage or Mining (if appropriate) searches as we will put in place an insurance which will protect your lender. This is less expensive for you and quicker. Some lenders still require that searches are made and will not rely on insurance. If this is the case the searches will have to be made and the cost will show on the Financial Statement sent to you.

At about the same time that you receive your Mortgage Offer we receive a copy together with the lender’s instructions to act for them. We will consider the Offer to ensure that we do those things required of us as the solicitors and to check what other conditions have to be satisfied.

We will then send you the Mortgage Deed to sign and any other documentation that may be required by your lender. We shall need to have this back from you as soon as possible and certainly by the day before we complete. Otherwise there will be a delay.
You need to check that the Mortgage Offer is acceptable to you. For example, is the mortgage amount and mortgage product correct? Is it the correct method of repayment? Are there any early repayment fees?

We target a completion date for 7 days after we receive our copy of the Mortgage Offer but our being able to complete depends on the terms of the Offer and any peculiarities of your transaction.

If the new mortgage amount is less than the amount we have to pay to your existing lender, we will ask for the difference from you, before the completion date.
Following completion we deal with the registration formalities to ensure the mortgage security is perfected for your lender and any deeds will then be sent to your lender for safe-keeping.

Note – If your property is leasehold, we also:
Request your landlord to confirm that all ground rent, service charges and insurance premiums (if applicable) have been paid to date and that there is no known breach of the lease.

Have to approve the wording of the lease.

Have to serve on the landlord a notice of discharge of your existing mortgage and a notice that a new mortgage has been given to your new lender.

    My Thanks to Poppy, she was very knowledgable, lovely to talk with and alway polite and cheerful. She completed my purchases very quickly and very efficiently, so much so this is the second time I have used them and wouldn't hesitate in recommending them. The 'Eway' was really good and all so simple as long as you are computer savvy. I had a computer and a printer scanner, which made purchasing the property the Eway, very simple.

    I think this is the future of conveyancing. Having used traditional solicitors, I found that there was no significant difference in MyHomeMove's almost virtual online conveyancing.In the traditional model, after a face-to-face meeting, it appears that almost all communication is online or via telephone.However, when combined with the significantly lower cost, it proves superior overall.

    We went with my home move conveyancing due to the hours that they work and with me not being contactable at work. Everything was completed very quickly and smoothly making the process pretty painless for me.My wife had the app on her I phone which worked fantastically.They keep in contact with you throughout the process with texts and emails to prompt you to do the bits that you need to do and have been very supportive in answering all of my questions I'm sure many of which they had heard before.Overall they made it very straightforward buying a house. I would recommend them to anyone.

    I was dubious about online conveyancing but now I'm sold. Easy to set up, and once things were underway, very quick and efficient. The online portal is an excellent way to track progress, and to send or receive documents. Our conveyancer was accessible, on top of the case, and ran the conveyance around our needs and timescale. Would definitely use them again in the future.

    My conveyancer was very thorough and responded to calls and emails very promptly . The phone app was easy to use and I could look at documents and track progress at any time which I found very useful. Although it was an online service , there was always someone to answer phone calls . I would certainly use this service again .

    I am very happy the way the sale of my home was carried out. Anita was my property conveyencer and she was brilliant from start to finish also extremely helpful and kind. I was helped to understand certain glitches during the process of coveyancing and moreover helping me to solve them and carry on with the sale smoothly to completion. Thank you very much Anita.Best wishes Kenneth Viegas

    Few bumps in the process, but happy with the final result. Completion happened on time as requested. Took some time to iron out a few of the queries, and contact was sometime a little difficult. Online portal works well and gives you a lot of information you may not get communicated otherwise.

    To begin with I was a little dubious about using an online solicitor for a house sale, but I'm so glad I did. Not only was it good value, the most important thing was being able to see what was happening, every step of the way, whenever you wanted. When you work 9-5, you haven't the time to keep ringing solicitors or going into the offices, and this day and age people want minimal hassle. The solicitor was friendly and polite in phone calls and emails, not like some of the pompous types I've had the unfortunate 'pleasure' of having to deal with in the past. So all in all, top rate, thanks very much, highly recommended.
