Letter of offer: the seller will sign the letter of offer signed by you and accept your deposit of 2% of the property price which is kept by the estate agent as stakeholder until the Sale and Purchase Agreement (S&P) is signed.
S&P: S&P will provide details of the transfer and any warranties; the seller will now be given a deposit of 10% of the purchase price less the amount of deposit given at the letter of offer stage
State authority consent: Only for transfers of leasehold land or for foreign buyers, it can take from 6 weeks to 3 months
Completion: Completion will usually take place within 3 months of the S&P.
The paperwork for letter of offer, S&P should only be done by yourself if you are sure of the procedures. If not, it would be best to hand it to a lawyer as there are loopholes which you yourself would normally not find, leaving yourself at a disadvantage.
