For most of us, our home is the largest financial investment we will ever make.
This alone can make buying property a stressful situation. When you add into the mix, dealing with estate agents, banks, building societies, local authorities, surveyors and others in the chain, it can also become a difficult and complicated process.
Whether you are buying, selling, re-mortgaging or have landlord and tenant issues, our Residential Property Team will provide a hands-on, local and accessible lawyer to guide you through the process,
Our team will ensure that your transaction is always dealt with speedily, efficiently and professionally — this is particularly important where completion is required as quickly as possible — ask any estate agent.
We don’t cut corners
An individual experienced professional will deal thoroughly and carefully with your legal work. It is essential you have a specialist working for you to protect your investment and ensure that everything goes as smoothly as possible.
Although we recognise cost is important to our clients, we won’t compromise the quality of our service by cutting costs to the minimum, perhaps by taking less individual care, or having non-qualified staff do the work in an automated way.
You will know the name of the member of staff handling your case and that of their secretary, and one or the other will always be available to answer your questions.
We are members of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. This means that we meet the high standards that the Law Society requires when providing conveyancing services.
We will keep you up to date
We do not expect you to log on to our website to find out what is happening with your transaction — we will encourage you to keep in contact through telephone or email.
We will keep you regularly informed, especially when some delay occurs beyond your or our control — this is all part of our normal service, without any extra charge.
We will help guide you through all aspects of your sale, and/or purchase, and we’re readily available at the end of the phone, by e-mail or fax and, of course, in person if you want to pop in and see us – whether you need a general chat to point you in the right direction or the reassurance as to how the conveyancing process works with all the estate agents, mortgage advisers, other solicitors and surveyors that could be involved.
We may also be able to advise you in your negotiations over the price and other matters.
Our local knowledge
We enjoy excellent relationships with all the local estate agents and others with whom we have to deal and this can certainly help in keeping things on track.
We can introduce you to a reputable surveyor and help obtain the necessary Energy Performance Certificate.
We will Protect your investment
We will also point out any potential problems, for example a major infrastructure project, that could affect the future value of your new home.
Other issues, such as a right of access or a restrictive covenant, which you would like removed, can be dealt with by our specialist staff.
We especially pride ourselves on putting our clients and their needs first. This, we believe, helps to achieve what we hope will be a stress-free move.
