A solicitor or conveyancer usually conducts the conveyancing process, but it is possible (although difficult) to do it yourself as long as you are not taking out a mortgage.
1. The first step is to find a solicitor or conveyancer and “instruct them” to complete the conveyancing process. Ashwood Homes offers panel solicitors, however as a customer you are not obligated to use them, they are simply there if you need them.
2. Your appointed conveyancer will then draw up a draft contract or terms of engagement with you, setting out their charges and deposits required.
3. Your solicitor will write to your sellers solicitor to confirm they are instructed and request a copy of the draft contract and any other details, such as the property’s title and the standard forms.
