Residential Conveyancing

Buying or selling a house can be stressful. For many it may well be the most important transaction of their lives. We have a large, experienced and friendly team to take you through the conveyancing process.

With our knowledge of the legal process we can ensure that matters proceed in as stress-free a manner as possible, whether or not the properties involved are situated locally.

We have also recently achieved accreditation in the Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Membership of the Scheme means that we meet the high standards the Law Society sets to ensure that we give clients a professional and high quality service.

Our team will:

-  explain clearly the steps in the process and what you can expect from your solicitor;

-  tell you what costs will be involved;

-  keep you informed of progress in your sale or purchase; and

-  work in accordance with the quality standards of the Scheme.

Buying a Property

Once you have found a house or flat to buy, we can guide you through your dealings with estate agents, other people in the chain, your surveyor and your mortgage lender. We will explain to you the legal rights and obligations which you will be acquiring, and the rights which others might have over the property. If the property is leasehold, we will advise you of your rights and duties with regard to a management company or neighbouring tenants.

Selling a Property

As soon as you decide that you wish to sell a property, we will be happy to discuss the mechanics of the sale with you. We will obtain the title deeds to ensure that, once a buyer has been found, we can send out the draft papers as quickly as possible.

Remortgages

A remortgage is when you are looking to change your mortgage lender or seeking a different product from your existing mortgage lender by taking out a new mortgage on the property.

Transfer of Equity

This is where the existing owner of a property transfers or sells their interest either to the other existing co-owner or to a third party.

Lease Extensions

If you are the owner of a leasehold property where the lease has less than 90 years remaining you should think about extending your lease.

Buy To Let

‘Buy to Let’ is where property is bought as an investment and let out.
