We understand that buying a property is likely to be the biggest financial transaction you make. We will guide you through every step of the buying process and be on-hand to deal with any conveyancing enquiries throughout.
Our team of residential property solicitors will make all appropriate searches against the property, which typically will include a local search, a drainage search, an environmental report, a ChancelCheck report and a coal authority search.
We will raise all appropriate enquiries of the seller’s solicitors and examine the seller’s replies to property information forms provided in the course of the conveyancing transaction.
We will investigate whether the property has been altered or added to, and we will ensure that all appropriate consents have been obtained, both privately through any covenants affecting the property title and publicly in relation to any planning consents and building regulations consents required.
Where you are purchasing a property with the aid of mortgage finance, we will usually act for the mortgage lender, as well as for you, to carry out all the necessary work required by them in relation to reporting on the title. We will assist with the execution of all documentation required by the lender and register the lender’s legal charge against the property.
Our residential property solicitors are very experienced in advising clients on the purchase of new build houses, flats and apartments. We will ensure that you know all the details about the property you are buying and, in the majority of cases, this will be by reference to a clear plan.
