In recent years one of the most popular New Year’s resolutions was to move house, and this year is no different, yet again we have seen an increase in the number of clients looking forward to a New Year in a new home.
If you have a similar resolution this year then we recommend you start preparing as early as possible to ensure that all paperwork is completed well in advance – even if you’ve yet to find the house of your dreams!
The timescale for moving house can depend on a number of factors. However the average process should take between eight and twelve weeks, but carrying out preparation in advance will ensure everything is conducted as swiftly and agreeably as possible.
If you’re planning on selling a property in the New Year there is plenty you can do in preparation for an offer. Your house could face being on the market for months, so once you find a buyer you will want to get the conveyancing process moving as quickly as possible. Did you know that you and your solicitor could prepare for your sale before an offer is even agreed? This could take a number of weeks off the process.
Sellers are usually more inclined to go with a buyer who already has everything in order, so if you are a buyer do yourself a favour and be as prepared as possible to avoid disappointment. Read our conveyancing checklist for buyers to ensure you don’t overlook anything important during the home moving process.
It’s definitely worth taking the time to find a good conveyancing solicitor to ensure your conveyancing is conducted professionally. Ask for recommendations when choosing a conveyancer by talking to friends or family who have bought a property in the area.
So if you fancy spending 2017 in a brand new home, move quickly and make sure you plan ahead.
