  • What should I consider before buying a new home?

    It is quite likely that buying a new home is the largest purchase you will ever make. It is important therefore, to ensure that you are fully prepared and in the best position possible before agreeing to purchase a new home.

  • How long will my transaction take?

    The average time between instructing your solicitor and moving in is 10-12 weeks but this does vary depending on the specific circumstances.

  • What is a "conveyancing chain"?

    Frequently, clients who own property choose to buy and sell simultaneously. This results in numerous linked transactions, each dependent on the other. This means that exchange of contracts must take place simultaneously. If there is a delay at the bottom of the chain, this will cause delays for the transactions further up the chain.

  • When should I apply for a mortgage?

    It is a good idea to conduct some research on the different types of mortgages available to you before you start looking for a property. Once you have done so, most lenders will offer a mortgage in principle to you before you find and decide on a particular property.

  • When should I instruct my solicitor?

    This depends on whether you are selling or buying a property. If you are selling, you should contact your solicitor before you put your house on the market. If you are buying, you should contact your solicitor before you make an offer.

  • What is the difference between "exchange" and "completion" dates?

    The date of the exchange of contracts is the point at which the buyer and seller commit irrevocably to the transaction. A completion date is the date on which you actually take possession and move into your new property and vacate your old one if applicable. The completion date is agreed in advance and written into the contract.

  • When can I be certain that the property will be mine?

    Until the point of exchange of contracts, either side can back out from the transaction. Once contracts are exchanged however, the agreement becomes legally binding and neither party can withdraw.

  • What happens to my deeds?

    The Land Registry no longer issue paper “Deeds” such as the legal title document; this is now held electronically by the Land Registry. Copies can be downloaded from the Land Registry’s records online. However, there are a number of useful supporting paper documents which you should keep safe as they are required when the property is sold again.
