    Whats next! 30th Nov 17 at 2:10 PM
    Hello all,

    I'm looking for some advise and any information or suggestions is very much welcome and greatly appreciated.

    I've had my offer accepted back early September and instructed my solicitor to start the conveyancing process. Through a few hick ups etc and having to hammer onto my solicitor that haste in the process is life or death (to the point I had to email her manager) I have now had a response stating the following:

    "I will be in contact further by close of business today with your report.

    I can confirm that I have received the results of your pre contract searches today."

    The vendors solicitor is remarkably efficient and as far as I'm aware all paperwork their end is ready.

    My question which is.. whats next? I've asked my solicitor multiple times with no answer.

    Many thanks in advance to you all.

    I'm sure it isn't a life or death situation, that's a little overdramatic.

    Next; your solicitor will review the searches and seek questions to answers regarding both the searches and information in the property forms. These will be responded to by the vendors solicitor.

    Then your solicitor will report to you. Perhaps via post, perhaps in person.

    You will then be asked to sign the contract.

    This is for freehold. If a leasehold property, questions will also be raised with the freeholder.
