We can help with
Buying and Selling a Property

We know that the buying and selling of property can be an extremely stressful time. Our experienced residential conveyancing staff understand this. The key to minimising the stress of this process is the art of communication with all parties, taking a pro-active approach and using our experience to make a transaction as seamless as possible.

We will not make you false promises, sometimes problems do occur. What we will promise however is that if a problem arises, you will have a dedicated and experienced team on hand to resolve it for you and to guide you through the process.

We also know that cost is a factor when making what is probably the most expensive purchase of your life. Our fees are very competitive and our approach friendly yet professional.

We can also help if you are:

How long will my house purchase or sale take?

How long it will take from your offer being accepted until you can move in to your house will depend on a number of factors. We think a realistic average is 10 to 12 weeks.

It can be quicker or slower, depending on the parties in the chain. For example, if you are a first time buyer, purchasing a property with a mortgage in principle and without a long chain, it could take 10 weeks. However, if you are buying a leasehold property that requires an extension of the lease, this can take significantly longer, between 2 to 4 months.

Purchases Pricing

We have set out below our standard costs and VAT depending on the type of purchase and value of the house that you are purchasing. In addition, we have listed typical disbursements. Disbursements are payments which we make to third parties on your behalf. Factors may increase our costs or the disbursements payable. These include, but are not limited to: a the property that is not registered at the Land Registry, a defective legal title, missing documents, the need for an indemnity policy.

In addition, if you are purchasing a leasehold or a shared ownership property you will normally need to pay other fees, including but not limited to, a transfer fee, a charge fee, a deed of covenant fee and a certificate of compliance fee. These fees vary from property to property. We will provide you with the cost when we have all the documents. You should also be aware that ground rent and service charge are likely to apply throughout your ownership of a leasehold property. We will confirm the ground rent and the anticipated service charge as soon as this we receive this information.

This will include disclosure of any discrepancies between the mortgage application and information provided to us during the transaction and any cash back payments or discount schemes which a seller is providing you. If a conflict arises, we must cease to act for you in this matter.
