Buying a House

So, you’ve found it – the one. You’ve taken the plunge and you’ve made an offer on that ideal house for you. Knowing the process of Conveyancing can really help in understanding exactly what is happening and at what stage you are at. People can often feel disorientated and out of control and as buying a home is one of the top 5 most stressful things to do – we aim to make it as straight forward as possible, by explaining each and every step.

We pride ourselves on being completely transparent when it comes to fees and disbursements. You will be provided with a Quote at the beginning of the transaction and it will always be discussed with you if any additional fees or disbursements are added or deducted during the process.

Buying Your Home in 5 Easy Steps

  • Receiving your Instruction

    This will include your completed instruction forms, your Identity Documents and also your Source of Funds.

  • Receive the Contract Pack from the Sellers Solicitor

    The Contract Pack will contain the Title Documents to the property, the Protocol Forms which the seller has completed and any certificates and documentation that the seller has provided. Your Solicitor will then review the information and ask any necessary questions on your behalf.

  • Submitting Searches

    Searches usually include a Local Search, Environmental Search and Drainage Search

  • Report on Title

    On receipt of satisfactory replies to enquiries and the results of your searches, your Solicitor will then produce a Title Report for you which will contain all of the documents that you will need to sign.

  • Exchanging Contracts

    A phone call between the solicitors to run through the contract, make the Contract legally binding and set the date for completion, which is the day that money transfers and that you get your keys!

Everyone I dealt with was professional, efficient, patient, and human! Mandy at reception fielding my (many) calls and Tania who calmly pointed out the intricacies of the process in terms I could understand.

I would particularly like to praise Leanne Salt who, apart from the occasional conversation with Tania, dealt with this sale

This has been a fraught process ( nothing to do with Poole Alcock I must stress) particularly with an uncommunicative and slow buyer’s solicitor causing what should have been a  straightforward sale to be drawn out and stressful but Leanne did all she could to progress it, even liaising with the estate agent when the the buyer’s solicitor was not forthcoming.

Without her being so proactive I really don’t know when, or even if, we would have completed.

With Leanne I felt that she was always fighting my corner and I felt I could to talk to her as a person.

If I were to sell another property I would certainly use Poole Alcock as long as Leanne handled it.

This is a brief note to thank you and Julia for all your help generally.  We have been very impressed with your efficiency and helpful response throughout.  It may well be that we will be looking to sell in the not too distant future, and if that proves to be the case we will definitely be coming back to Poole Alcock to act for us in the sale.
