We often find that clients see their conveyancer only when they have found a buyer and don’t realise that speaking to a lawyer when your property first goes on to the market can save time and a lot of hassle later on.
If you are planning to move house, some early planning can make the process a little less frustrating and can kick start your home move.
If you have not bought or sold for some time, your conveyancer will need to verify your Identity and an up to date passport and utility bill or bank statement is the easiest way for your conveyancer to satisfy the strict rules that lawyers have to follow.
It’s important that a buyer is supplied with essential information about the property being sold and lawyers use standard transaction forms to provide the information. Your conveyancer can supply these forms and help you complete them even before a buyer is found so that when the sale is agreed a complete pack of information is ready to be handed over without delay.
Properties with rights of way, private drainage, listed buildings or with land attached can present some challenges and it is worthwhile taking a moment or two to consider how best to present the information a buyer will need.
We can advise you what documents are expected. If you don’t have a particular document to hand, perhaps a planning consent or Building Regulation approval, we can discuss your options so that it doesn’t delay the sale.
At AmicusLaw we are always happy to meet our clients for an informal chat and to help them plan their home move.
