Buying or selling a home is a complex business, both legally and administratively. The exact order of events varies slightly, but there are three main stages to the process.

Following an offer and acceptance Conveyancing can be split into distinct stages. The three main stages are outlined at the most basic level below...

Stage One: Before the Exchange of Contracts
The draft contract is received and negotiated, enquiries are made and the formal mortgage offer is received.

Stage Two: Exchange of Contracts
The contract is signed and you hand over a deposit. Final accounts are prepared and the mortgage deed requested for you to sign. Final searches are made.

Stage Three: Completion
You obtain the keys to your new home and receive the title deeds. Stamp duty is paid and the transfer is arranged at the Land Registry..
