Once you have instructed a Solicitors to act on your behalf you will need to provide their contact details to the estate agent. The Estate Agent should then issue your Memorandum of Sale (which has the necessary contact details of all parties involved in the transaction). In the meantime your solicitor will need to see and copy your original Identification Documents. Following on from both of these your solicitor may request an initial payment to contribute towards the start of the necessary searches on your prospective property. Upon receipt of contract documents your solicitor will start investigating the property and submit searches. Before it can proceed to the final stage your solicitor will need to see the full mortgage offer and or ensure that your financial arrangements are in place. The estimated time for completion is typically 6 – 8 weeks from receipt of Contract Documentation although this is dependent on factors outside of your solicitors control.
