Why Is a Will Important?
Most people should have a will. Wills can determine who your property is passed on to, who will be the Executor, who the guardians of your children will be, and more. More reasons to consider a will are detailed below:
Make life easier whether you’re a buyer or seller! Conveyancing is an essential part in buying or selling property. A professional conveyancing solicitor helps with the settlement and title transfer process by ensuring that their client is meeting all legal obligations and that their client’s rights are protected during the transaction.
It involves the legal transfer of home ownership from the seller to you being the buyer. The conveyancing process starts when your offer on a house is accepted and finishes when you receive the keys.
Conveyancing for Your Mortgage
You will need to get your mortgage in place, which includes ensuring you have the savings available for a deposit. Your solicitor will receive a copy of the mortgage offer and go through the conditions. You will need to get a mortgage valuation which would normally be a part of the conveyancing process and is carried out on behalf of the mortgage company, so they can ensure that the property you’re buying provides sufficient security for the loan.
You normally have to pay for the mortgage valuation yourself, however a mortgage company might throw it in for free to attract new business. You may also need to have some other surveys completed. Before exchange of contracts can take place, your lender will need you to get buildings insurance for your new home because you are responsible for the property as soon as contracts have been exchanged, so it’s in your best interest to protect yourself in case of any mishaps.
It can be a tricky process to do alone and this is why our team of conveyancers are here to help you every step of the way.
