How can I speed up the process of buying a house?

Selling a house requires incredible feats of perseverance, organisation, and expertise in the field. It also demands patience as there are oftentimes delays in the conveyancing process which are out of the owner and buyers’ control. In this article, FastCash4Houses will be offering some top tips for how to take control of the house buying process.

Organising the finances

Before you begin your property search, you should identify which lender and mortgage product you would like to apply for. The best step is to contact your lender and ask for a ‘Decision in Principle’ in order to get the credit check process and affordability checks sorted, confirm the lender’s role, and figure out how much you can afford. It will also allow you to gain a certificate to show the buyer, which will further support your offer.

Choose the right solicitor

Picking the best solicitor who will satisfy your requirements can be a complex task as service levels in the conveyancing industry vary a great deal. The most important factor to consider is that your solicitor has a proactive approach to the conveyancing process.


The level of communication during the pre-instruction process will provide you with the greatest insight into the firm’s likely efficiency. You may also want to check the solicitor’s credentials through asking questions such as whether they are part of the Conveyancing Quality Scheme, if they have Lexcel accreditation, or if they have won any awards for conveyancing excellence. These credentials indicate that the firm is reliable and prioritises service.

Online reviews

The power of online reviews should not be underestimated. Reading them with a balanced view is vital. Indicators of solicitors you may want to avoid include poor communication and delays.

Organising documents

The first step after choosing your solicitor is to email their welcome pack of documents immediately, and then complete the ID instruction and any other forms. From there, call the estate agent and give them your solicitor’s details. Organising these essential documents from the get-go will ensure that the process can run as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
