Why do I need a property solicitor to buy a house?
When buying a house it is important to employ the services of a conveyancer or property solicitor. Purchasing a home is an exciting but stressful time, in particular for first time buyers.
Your conveyancing solicitor will take you through the legal transfer of the property from seller to the buyer. They will explain and resolve any legal issues that may arise.
How will a conveyancing solicitor help me to purchase a property?
Explain the home buying process: Our conveyancing solicitors will explain each and every step of the home-buying process. Giving you advice when you need it most.
Review important documentation: Our service includes a full review of all of the important documentation involved in the property transaction, including the seller’s contract pack which will contain title documents for the property, a completed Property Information Form and a Fittings and Contents List.
Conduct property searches: We will also review all of the searches and survey results on you and your mortgage lenders behalf, to ensure that there are no hidden surprises when you move in. The last thing you need is something that will hamper your enjoyment of the property or cause problems for you at a later date. Should anything of concern be discovered, such as the presence of damp for example, we will advise you of the actions that you can choose to take.
Entering into the contract: Your conveyancer will work with you to identify and resolve any legal issues before exchanging contracts when purchasing your home. We will arrange a time for you to enter into a binding contract between you and the seller of the property which you are buying. This will be arranged for you on a specific date that you agree to complete the purchase of the property.
Property purchase completion: We will take you through all of the required steps for you to complete the purchase of your property, to finally transferring the funds. We will guide you through preparing the tax return and help you to pay the Stamp Duty Land Tax to HMRC. Last of all we will register your name as the owner of the property, along with your mortgage provider as lender, at the Land Registry.
