How long will it take to complete my property purchase?
On average, a transaction will usually take 8 – 12 weeks. This timeframe runs from when we receive your instructions to act for you, until completion of your purchase. There are a number of factors which will affect the time taken, including how you are funding the purchase, whether you also have a property to sell, if the property is registered with the Land Registry and other parties in the chain.
How do I claim my Help to Buy ISA bonus?
Your Conveyancer will be able to claim your bonus for you on your behalf. Once a completion date is agreed, your ISA should be closed down and you will need to provide your Conveyancer with your Closing Statement. We will also need you to sign a Help to Buy Declaration. Your Conveyancer will then request your bonus ready for the completion of your property purchase.
Are there different ways of owning a property with my partner?
Yes there are and it’s always important to consider how you are going to own a property when purchasing with somebody else. It is possible to own a property as Beneficial Joint Tenants, or as Beneficial Tenants in common, either in equal or unequal shares. Which option is best for you depends on what you want to happen to the property if one of you passes away, or if you were to separate, or if you wish to protect a financial contribution made to the property.
