We at PCS Legal are always looking for ways to speed up the conveyancing process. The government recently tried the same with Home Information Packs which although still work aren’t widely used. There is a much simpler way – the major time waster is simply completing paperwork! We find on average a good week to two weeks can be wasted whilst forms are filled out and documents obtained. Unfortunately, we can not do anything about the amount of forms that need to be completed however they can be filled in and completed at a much earlier stage hence saving vital weeks in the conveyancing process. It is normal practice to place an offer on a property you wish to purchase or to receive an offer on the property you are selling and then at that point, the information forms would be completed.
The forms that need to be completed contain general information relating to yourself and the property you are intending to purchase or sell. To aid the process, should you wish to attend our office to return your initial forms and complete the required identity checks by supplying your ID we are not only open during business hours but also on a Monday evening up till 10pm. We understand it is difficult to get time off work for such matters and hopefully our additional opening hours will alleviate this problem.
Please contact us regarding the same. Should you have any questions or wish for us to provide you with our initial forms, either by email or by post, then we can do this prior to you finding a property to purchase or prior to you finding a purchaser for the property you are selling. Using the FAST MOVE process WILL speed up your transaction!
