Residential conveyancing solicitors

If you’re buying, selling or re-mortgaging your home, then you’ll have enough to worry about without adding conveyancing to the list. Our residential conveyancing solicitors can make sure the process is straight-forward and can be completed as easily as possible.

What is residential conveyancing?

Put simply, residential conveyancing is the entire administrative and legal process necessary for the ownership of a property to transfer from one person to another. You will need help from a residential conveyancer if you are buying and/or selling a home, or when you are transferring equity.

When you have made the decision to buy and/or sell a property, your next step will be to find a conveyancing solicitor that can help guide you through the process. They can also help you to transfer equity or remortgage your home. No matter what it is that you need, our expert residential conveyancing solicitors will be by your side every step of the way.

We understand that buying or selling property can be stressful and seem complicated. That’s why we take great care to steer you through the entire residential conveyancing process as carefully as we can.

Transfer of equity

As a property owner, you may wish to give or sell part of your property to a spouse or child as your life changes. You may also wish to remove someone from ownership of the property, for instance if you separate from your partner.

A transfer of equity is also known as a transfer of title and occurs when someone is added or removed from the title deeds of a property. Transfer of residential property is not necessarily an overly complex process, but it does require the assistance of a solicitor to make sure everything goes smoothly.

Let our residential conveyancing solicitors help you transfer equity.

New build conveyancing

In most cases, buying a new build will be a more challenging process than buying an older property, because you will often be required to commit to the purchase before the property is completed.

This can be tricky because it means that you pay for something which doesn’t yet fully exist.

Are you looking for a residential conveyancer to assist you with buying a new build? We can help.

Property searches

Our conveyancing solicitors generally spend most of their time with sale and purchase processes, which start with ‘searches’. Searches are the enquiries made to local authorities and utility companies to check the property is registered to the seller. Searches are also a chance to map out any potential risks to the value of the property in the future.

Searches expose things like planning permissions for future projects close to the property, the proximity of public sewer pipes and environmental factors likes contaminated land and flood risks.

The exact searches you need depend on the property and location.

We will make sure you have a clear understanding of which searches you require, and what the results of your searches mean.

Optional searches

Many searches are optional, so you may decide not to carry out all of them. Our residential conveyancing solicitors will assess your situation and inform you of all your options.

The local council could be planning on introducing new extra-large billboards in your street or may have given planning permission to businesses that could harm the area’s reputation. If so, you would want to know that now, not after you’ve bought the property.

Why searches are so important

If a factory, car garage or betting hall was going to be built down the street, it could radically affect the appeal of the property to you. External factors outside of your control can cause serious harm to its future. Costs involved – such as legal action or moving again – are far greater than the small charge of a search.

Your solicitor will be able to give you a clear understanding of the type of searches you should include and what risks you would be taking if you don’t.
