Why do I need legal assistance when buying a property?

Once you have found the right property to buy and agreed a suitable price through the Estate Agent the buyer is responsible for checking it and making sure it is suitable and fit for purpose. This is known as ‘caveat emptor’.

Before the legal ownership of the property can be transferred certain searches must be carried out to ensure the property is in good order. Legally-binding contracts must also be drawn up and reviewed.

To look after your interests and those of the mortgage provider, it is important to use an experienced conveyancer or conveyancing solicitor to check that these procedures have been carried out correctly. They will also draw your attention to any potential issues and offer legal advice.

What costs are involved in buying a property?

To assist you in deciding whether to instruct us to help buy your home, we will provide a detailed breakdown of all our conveyancing costs so that you know what to expect in advance.

How long does conveyancing take?

The average UK property sale (or purchase) takes approximately 12-16 weeks to complete, but this varies depending on the complexities of each individual deal and the number of people involved and the number of properties in the chain.  Matters can only proceed at the speed of the ‘weakest link’.

We aim to complete each property transaction quickly and to a timescale that fits in with your requirements. Throughout the process, we will provide you with support, advice and guidance.  If any problems or delays arise, we always explain what is happening so you can set a realistic date for completion.
