Purchases & Sales
At this stage your solicitor will establish contact with everyone involved. We collect the relevant documents and information from everyone involved to get the process started and ID for the client is obtained.
This is where your solicitor does their due diligence. We perform searches on the property and raise the usual enquiries as well as reviewing the deeds and related paperwork to ensure good title to the property. If we catch anything out of the ordinary, we’ll discuss it with you and work out how to move forward. When you’re selling a property with us we respond to the new buyers queries and they perform the searches.
On checking the title we write up a contract to confirm the terms of the property transfer. Once the contract is approved it can be signed along with the transfer. We’ll then invite you to sign it and transfer us your deposit if you’re making a purchase.
At the point where contracts are exchanged the transfer of property becomes binding. We will transfer your deposit if you’re making a purchase and agree a ‘completion date’ which is when we will transfer ownership.
This is the day that the transfer is completed. Solicitors will confirm the transfer of funds due, and the keys are released from your estate agents – congratulations on your new home!
Following completion your solicitor will set about arranging the payment of any tax due, and the registration of the transfer of property with the Land Registry.
