Now your sale has completed there are a number of items your solicitor must attend to.  These can include: 

  • Registration of the mortgage

  • Paying stamp duty

  • Sending Title Deeds to the bank

Some of the items your solicitor will now arrange include:

  • File a stamp duty return online and pay the stamp duty to the Revenue Commissioners within 44 days of the first signing of the deed. If the amount of stamp duty to be paid must be ruled on by the Revenue Commissioners, file the return and pay the stamp duty within the relevant timescales.

  • Print off certificate of stamping when received.

  • Advise the buyer that stamping has been completed.

  • Lodge certificate of stamping, deed and other documents in the Land Registry or Registry of Deeds for registration.

  • Answer any Land Registry queries arising.

  • Follow up any professional promises or undertakings made by the seller’s solicitor to send on any final documents that were not available on the day of the closing.

  • When the registration is completed, obtain a copy Land Registry folio showing the buyer's ownership (Land Registry) or the deed of conveyance or other deed showing the buyer's registration (Registry of Deeds).

  • Advise buyer of completion of registration.

  • Certify the title and send certificate of title with the original title deeds to the lender, if there is a professional promise or undertaking to do so.

  • Obtain written confirmation of receipt of title deeds and certificate of title from the lender, together with a release of any professional promise or undertaking given.

  • Advise buyer that the deeds are with the lender and that the undertaking or professional promise has been released by them.

  • Reconcile any amounts remaining in the client account and finalise with the purchase

All of the post-completion items are taken care of by your solicitor and as a client, you do not need to do anything.   In the meantime, we would like to hear your thoughts on how we can improve and how your solicitor may improve their service to their clients. 

This is the final step in the process and you will no longer receive updates. It is prudent to review both your mortgage and insurance rates regularly to ensure you are getting the best rate on the market.
