Sale and Purchase of Property
We can offer a comprehensive and expert service in handling the conveyancing for your sale or purchase of a property.
As soon as you decide to sell get in touch with us so that we can get together the necessary documentation.
Once you have a Buyer we will send the draft contract to the Buyer’s Conveyancers and help you deal with any enquiries that are raised.
We will deal with exchange of contracts at which stage you will be committed to sell and the Buyer to purchase and at this stage the completion date will be fixed. This is normally between fourteen to twenty-eight days from the date of exchange of contracts.
Between exchange of contracts and completion we will deal with the transfer document and if you have a mortgage on your property, we will obtain and agree with you the final amount due to the lender.
On completion we will deal with the transfer of the property and the funds and the discharge of any mortgage from the sale proceeds. Normally you will be required to move out by the completion date and give vacant possession of your property to the Buyer.
Let us know as soon as you have a property to buy and we will then get in touch with the Sellers' Conveyancers to request the draft contract and supporting documents.
We will make searches which will include those of the local and drainage authorities and normally an environmental search is made. We will make the appropriate enquiries of the Sellers' Conveyancers.
We will advise you on the draft contract and the result of the various searches and enquiries and will check the instructions that we receive from your lender where you require a loan to assist you in buying the property.
We will deal with exchange of contracts. At this stage you will be required to pay a deposit which is normally between 5% and 10% of the purchase price. Also at this stage the completion date is fixed. On exchange of contracts you will be committed to buy and the Seller to sell.
We will prepare the necessary form to be submitted to H M Revenue and Customs in respect of stamp duty land tax and we will ask you to check and sign the form.
When you are taking out a mortgage we will obtain your signature to the mortgage documents and the necessary funds from the lender.
We will deal with the transfer document and make a final search of the Land Registry and then on the completion date deal with the transfer of the property and the balance of the purchase price to the Sellers' Conveyancers and at completion you will be entitled to the keys of the property.
Following completion of the transaction we will submit the appropriate form to H M Revenue and Customs together with the stamp duty land tax that is payable and we will then deal with registration of the transfer to you at the Land Registry together with any mortgage you have taken out.
