Speed up conveyancing – How to move house faster

Buying or selling a property is often an exciting and sometimes stressful process. Even when the appropriate plans are in place, it is possible to face issues. Most people will face a minor issue, so instructing a trustworthy and experienced solicitor is vital.

As with any legal transaction, avoiding issues altogether is not always possible. However, there may be some things that you could do to ensure your purchase or sale goes through smoothly.

Top Tips for Buying or Selling a House

No two property transactions will be the same, and each party involved in the process will be responsible for different aspects. These responsibilities will also vary on a case-by-case basis, even for estate agents, mortgage brokers, and the buyer and seller. Despite these variations, there are some common reasons that we see transactions falling through. They include:

  • Property title issues
  • Building survey issues
  • Missing information from either party
  • Issues with the buyer’s mortgage application
  • A new build not ready in time
  • Probate sales
  • Property search delays

How To Speed Up Conveyancing

Your property solicitor or licenced conveyancer should work closely with you to prevent issues from occurring. In some cases, there are some things that you can do to help speed up the process. These include:

–         Acting quickly – Whether you have decided to sell your property or found the home you want to purchase; you must promptly contact an experienced property solicitor like Bookers & Bolton. There are various formalities to take care of with your solicitor, including documentation, depending on whether you are buying or selling. You should also notify the relevant parties (estate agent, mortgage broker, other parties’ solicitor) of your solicitor or licensed conveyancer’s contact details. The process tends to move more quickly when these parties are in contact.  Make sure you have as much information about your property ready as soon as possible.  We have an electronic client onboarding system that means you can upload your ID, sign and upload documents and complete forms, at the touch of a button, saving a huge amount of time and resources.

–         Finding the right solicitor – Even for the most straightforward transactions, your solicitor will face a variety of paperwork and other tasks. Therefore, ensuring they have appropriate experience and a good reputation is essential. With this, you will feel confident throughout the process, helping to put your mind at ease when faced with any concerns. In an ideal scenario, your solicitor should be on your mortgage lender’s panel. They usually need to have the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme membership for this to happen.  Look out for the CQS mark of quality on our website.

–         Be responsive – In some cases, you may face an issue with your transaction. In this case, you must respond to your solicitor promptly. They may require documentation, negotiation guidance, or insurance approval. The sooner you reply, the sooner the issue can be resolved, and your transaction can continue.

–         Consistent communication – At the centre of any efficient conveyancing process is clear, concise, and consistent communication.
