Conveyancing in Bristol: FAQs

How does conveyancing work in Bristol?

There are three basic stages in the conveyancing process in Bristol that you should be conversant with. This process involves:

  • Making an offer and acceptance 
  • Parties exchanging contracts 
  • Completion 

The buyer and seller of a property in Bristol agree to enter into a contract once they come to terms with a specific price for the property. 

Both parties are free to pull out of the transaction in this first stage because it is not legally binding. No party will incur any financial penalty when they decide to pull out of the transaction. 

The property buyer is allowed to work with their lawyer and carry out several checks on the property. These checks may include things like:

  • The conveyancing lawyer conducting conveyancing property search, such as the local authority search.
  • The buyer conducting an independent survey of the property without engaging the solicitors
  • The conveyancing lawyers review the property information that the seller provides about the property and make any inquiries if there is any.

The buyer and the seller agree to sign and exchange the contracts once all the checks are completed, and everyone is satisfied and happy. Now, at this point, once the contracts are signed, the transaction is considered legally binding to both parties. Pulling out of the contract at this stage is likely to result in a financial penalty.

On reaching the completion stage, the transaction is now considered official. The lawyer transfers the property deed to the HM Land Registry, and the seller is now required to surrender or leave the property.

How long does the conveyancing process take in Bristol?

There is no exact time it takes for the conveyancing process in Bristol. The time can vary, and there may be no significant hurdles in the process. It normally takes between 12 and 14 weeks to complete a conveyance in Bristol. This period begins from the moment the conveyancers are instructed first. 

There are issues bound to arise along the property chain that can cause a delay in transactions. Your lawyer is likely to inform you of any available options you have if there are any delays as the transaction is ongoing.

What are the searches involved in the conveyancing process in Bristol?

Your conveyancer will carry out some checks on your behalf if you are buying a property in Bristol. These checks are necessary to ensure you are made aware of any underlying and immediate issues that need your attention. There are three main conveyancing searches which include:

  • Water and drainage searches – this search checks matters like drainage access to the property
  • Environmental searches – this one checks issues such as land contamination and flooding.
  • Local authority checks – are the most important checks that involve checking the surrounding area for pollution, planning, highway, and any other related issues. 

Your lawyer is likely to carry out several searches not listed here, depending on the location and the type of property you are buying.

What is stamp duty?

Stamp duty is a type of tax that the government charges on the buyer of a property. Everyone is liable to a full stamp duty rate unless an exemption applies. If you don’t know how much you are likely to pay as stamp duty, you can ask your lawyer to calculate the tax on your behalf. 

Note that a first time buyer may be exempted from paying a full rate. The lawyer should be able to send you the tax estimate when they give a quote estimate. 

Property under a certain rate may be exempted from stamp duty. If you are buying property worth a million pounds, you should be ready to pay a higher stamp duty tax.

Once you have instructed your lawyer to complete the stamp duty form, the stamp duty becomes payable. You should always make payment before completion and get the right certificates to avoid any fraudulent buyer claiming illegal property ownership. 

How much should I pay when instructing my lawyer to complete the stamp duty form?

How much you pay for the completed form will depend on your lawyer. How much they charge will be contained on their terms. If this is not indicated, you should feel free to ask them.  

There are more than 70 questions listed on the completion form that you may not have all the time to answer correctly. Also, the completion from when completed incorrectly attracts a penalty. That means the lawyers will face the penalty and not you when they complete the form on your behalf. Hiring a conveyancer to help you fill the complete form is the best you can do.

What is a freehold property?

Freehold is a term used to describe the ownership of land. A land can either be leasehold (like flats) or freehold (like a house).

What is a leasehold property?

A leasehold is temporary ownership of a property. In most cases, the freeholder takes full ownership of the property once the lease agreement expires. Leasehold will usually apply to flats.

What is a title deed according to the HMLR Land Registry?

The HMLR Land Registry defines a title deed as a document relating to the property which may have benefits and rights that affect the property.

Can the deposit be less than 10% when buying a property?

In some cases, the buyer may not always be able to provide a full 10% deposit when buying the property. The reason is that they are buying the property on a 95% mortgage. It could also result when the buyer is receiving less money up the chain. For the seller, a reduced deposit of 10% will be paid, sometimes at 5% on average.

According to the contract, if something goes wrong and the buyer cannot complete the deposit, a process is followed in which the seller now keeps the buyer’s 10% deposit. The seller has to pursue a claim if the buyer doesn’t put the 10% deposit down. This is done through a litigation lawyer. A failed completion is not likely to occur. However, you have to beware of all the risks involved.

How long does property exchange take?

The property exchange process period varies depending on the conveyancer you choose to deal with. Other factors that may determine how long it takes include a chain and what time of the year it is.

In most cases, the completion takes between 3 and 4 months. It can take up to 5 months from the time you start contacting your conveyancing service. 

Therefore, before you start instructing your property lawyer, you should find time to speak to them. AVRillo takes an average of 2 months on property exchanges.

What is a mortgage offer?

A mortgage offer contains the terms of the offer and the amount you are being offered.
