Conveyancing transactions normally take between four to six weeks. For leasehold property, six to eight weeks is needed to exchange contracts from the receipt of documentation, although delays are not uncommon.
Estate agencies will act on behalf of the seller who is responsible for their fees. The solicitors at Grant Saw will offer advice and assistance regarding the contract if required.
In the case of the buyer or the seller, it is always advisable to consult with a solicitor for informed and correct legal advice before entering into an agreement.
Fixtures and fittings need to be specified on a specific form before the sale takes place and the solicitors should be informed. When removing fittings from walls in event of selling, the seller is responsible to repair the damage caused to structures.
Before contracts are exchanged, neither the buyer nor seller will be legally bound to complete the transaction nor is it still possible to renege on the sale or purchase. When survey or legal fees have been incurred, then these cannot be recovered from the other party. The transaction will become legally binding when the contract has been exchanged. A failure by parties to complete the purchase or sale will amount to a breach of contract.
