When buying a property, our conveyancing experts will assist you to move into your new home quickly while making the process as stress-free and as smooth as possible.

When you have made an offer to purchase a property which has been accepted by the seller, the services of a property expert are needed to ensure that the property you are buying is what you expect – with no nasty surprises.

It is our job to:
  • Check that your sellers are actually entitled to sell the property
  • Carry out all searches and raise additional enquiries if necessary
  • Act for your mortgage provider
  • Report on your mortgage offer, if applicable
  • Prepare all necessary documents to complete the transaction
  • Make pre-completion searches and checks
  • Complete the transaction smoothly and deal with the Land Registry to transfer legal ownership to you
In turn, when you sell your property you will need a property expert to ensure that the sale goes smoothly and is as stress-free as possible, by doing the following:
  • Obtain your property deeds and up to date copies from the Land Registry
  • Contact the lender to obtain an up to date statement of account
  • Prepare a draft contract and forward copies of the property deeds to the buyer’s solicitors
  • Reply to any enquiries that may be raised by the buyer’s solicitor
  • Liaise with all parties to confirm a completion date and tie this in with any ongoing purchase
  • Formalise the sale with an exchange of contracts
  • Liaise with the estate agents and keep all parties informed of progress
  • Deal with completion of your sale, pay off your mortgage with the sale proceeds and forward any balance due to you
