Buying & Selling a House

taking a lot of stress out of moving

For most people their home is their most valuable asset and we believe that the process of buying and selling a house deserves to be given our utmost attention.

We know that moving house can be a stressful and expensive experience; our aim is to combat this by providing an efficient and cost-effective conveyancing service.

We make use of the latest technology and our tailor-made computer system provides the necessary legal documentation for the transaction with the minimum of delay. We do, however, appreciate that, whilst streamlining of the conveyancing process is crucial, each client and each transaction is unique and we aim to reflect this in a personal and individual service. If you want to move and be kept up to date with what is happening, then please contact us, or, for further information, see our residential property guide.

How we can help

Costs - We know that you need to budget accurately for your move and, to assist you, we provide a detailed written breakdown of our costs and the payments that will have to be made to other bodies on your behalf (eg. Stamp Duty, Land Registry fees) and the various searches we will need to make against the property you propose to purchase.

Keeping you informed - It is obviously important that you are kept informed of progress throughout the transaction. At the outset we will provide you with guidance notes which explain the various steps involved in the sale or purchase of a house. Thereafter, we will provide regular updates during the transaction with a full written report on the property prior to exchange of contracts. Copies of the property documentation will be supplied to you following completion.

If you have any queries about the property or the progress of your case, a member of the conveyancing team will always be happy to help.

Expertise - We recognise that your move needs to be dealt with by experienced staff specialising in residential conveyancing. Each of our Conveyancers have many years' experience in helping both buyers and sellers sell or purchase properties ranging from Studio flats to Mansions costing millions and all manner of properties in between. In each case, we devote the same amount of time and attention to ensuring that YOUR transaction proceeds as quickly and smoothly as possible.


When you should contact us?

Let us know when you place your property on the market. We can then prepare documentation ready for immediate submission to the buyer’s solicitors once an offer has been accepted so the process can begin without delay.

Other help

Moving home is a good time to make a will, or review an existing one. A sale may have tax consequences. If you are buying the property jointly with somebody else it is sensible to set out your respective rights and liabilities in the property from the outset to avoid difficulties in the future. We can offer expert advise on these and other areas to ensure that all your affairs are in order. Also see our guides for residential tenancy service charges and tenancy deposit schemes checklists.
