Time to move?
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.
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.
For your peace of mind, we can offer protection against the costs which would otherwise be payable if your sale or purchase were to fall through. If the transaction doesn't proceed for any reason, we will not charge you for the work we carry out if you have opted to purchase our No Exchange, No Fee Protection which costs just £50 (inclusive of VAT) per transaction. The only expense for which you will be liable if you purchase this protection in the event that the transaction is aborted for whatever reason, are sums which we’ve spent on your behalf e.g., on searches, but otherwise you will have nothing to pay.
If you elect not to purchase our No Exchange, No Fee Protection and the transaction does not proceed to exchange of contracts (for whatever reason) you will be charged a fee to reflect the value of the work done by us up to that point.
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.
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.
