Moving house is an exciting time – but also a very busy, stressful and potentially expensive one. We offer an efficient, streamlined service which covers every aspect of the conveyancing process efficiently – and affordably.
Following your purchase we will arrange the payment of the stamp duty, where applicable, and register the purchase with the Land Registry on your behalf. We will then lodge the deeds with your building society or bank, and present you with a final account, with all costs itemised clearly and transparently.
Avery Emerson has a step-by-step guide to purchasing property, and we will be delighted to give you a copy of this and talk it through with you.
We will fill in our standard documentation with you, obtain the deeds to your home (almost always from HM Land Registry), and prepare the contract. Your estate agents will tell us who your potential purchaser’s solicitors are, and with an offer on the table we will contact them and get the sale under way without any delay.
We will answer all the questions which the purchaser’s solicitors might have and give them sight of the relevant documents. This takes us up to the point when you exchange contracts, and we then discuss a completion date and notify the purchaser’s solicitors. On that day we will settle up the balance of the mortgage, if you have one, deduct our fees, and forward you the balance without delay – allowing you to purchase another home on the same day, if that is your plan.
Selling your home need not be a complicated process – beware of law firms who say that it is! – and we will be very pleased to talk you through the steps we take. We can also give you a printed guide to selling.
We know very well how important your sale is, and how crucial it is to hit the relevant deadlines; you will find us conscientious and ever-attentive to the details.
