The Mortgage Conveyancing Process
When it comes to mortgages, the process of conveyancing is similar to the ‘standard’. As a buyer, you will have to ensure that you have the financing for the home in place. This means that you will have to get ready for the underwriting and valuation process. Once the offer is made your mortgage solicitors will go through it. His job will be to make sure that everything as far as legal matters are concerned is as it should be.
The valuation process then follows. The mortgage company carries out a valuation to determine the correct price of the property and whether the house is indeed enough security for the loan. Valuation is usually paid for but with the highly competitive climate in Cambridge city, some mortgage companies might throw it in as a free offer, a trend that is picking up not only in Cambridge city but all over the UK.
A survey can then be carried out. Many people tend to confuse between valuation and survey. A survey is typically done to determine if the house needs structural adjustments. If there are problems that are going to cause problems or whether there are repairs like rewiring that need completed.
After the repairs complete and both you and the mortgage company are satisfied by the quality of the property, then the exchange of contracts can take place. However, some companies do insist that you get building insurance for the new property. In the exchange of contracts, you will need your solicitor or conveyancer. He/she will do it for you and take care of all the legal matters.
