Buying a Property

Buying a property can be a stressful and extremely time consuming experience. Our team help provide clients with clear and easy to understand information to make the buying process as smooth and simple as possible.

Key events when Buying a property are:

  1. An offer is accepted via Estate Agents.
    All parties instruct Solicitors to act on their behalf.
  2. Estate Agents then send out a Memorandum of Sale to all parties confirming the agreed price and client details.
  3. Seller’s solicitors apply for documents from the Land Registry and send to the Buyer’s solicitors as part of the Contract package.
  4. The Buyer’s solicitors check the replies to all enquires including property questionnaires and fixtures and fittings information received from the Seller.
  5. Buyer’s solicitors submit local searches and request any additional information.
  6. Once the Buyer’s solicitors have received a copy of the Buyer’s mortgage offer and are content with the results of their searches and enquiries the Solicitor will arrange for the Buyer to then sign the Contract, Mortgage and Transfer documents. Contracts are then ready to be exchanged.
  7. A completion date will be negotiated and Contracts will be exchanged. Both parties are now legally bound to buy and sell the property for the agreed price on the agreed completion date.
  8. After completion the Transfer Deed is sent to the Land Registry, to register the property in the name of the new owners

Conveyancing

Buying or selling a property can be a stressful and extremely time consuming experience. Our team help provide clients with clear and easy to understand information.

Probate

The role of an Executor can be daunting as an Executor is the only person who is entitled to administer an estate. The Executor is held personally liable for any mistakes made.

Wills

Wills are very important and without one you have little control of how your estate is distributed when you die. Making a Will lets you distribute your money and possessions how you wish.

Power of Attorney

A Lasting Power of Attorney is a legally binding document which enables you to choose a person or persons, that you trust, to deal with your affairs in the future should you become either physically or mentally incapable.

Trusts

A Trust is a vehicle used to enable a chosen, trusted person (Trustee) to hold an asset in their protection for the benefit of another. Trusts can be complex , we therefore recommend you seek advice from our team of highly trained experts.

Employment Law

If a relationship between employee and employer breaks down, one solution is to enter into a 'Settlement Agreement'. This is a legally binding agreement that allows the employee to gain an agreed tax free lump sum whilst in return agreeing not to proceed with their case.
