Our residential conveyancing services in Bramhope

| Property purchases

We offer an excellent property purchase service, including in respect of more complex purchases and leasehold properties. Where necessary, we will tie in a related sale and also represent your mortgage lender.

The main stages you will need to go through in buying a property are as follows:

Securing a mortgage

If you need a mortgage, then you can ask a lender to provide you with a mortgage decision in principle before you start looking for somewhere to buy. This will give you the chance to select a lender and establish the amount they are likely to lend you. You can also start putting together the documentation they will need.

Once you have a mortgage decision in principle, you will be in a stronger position when making offers on properties.

Asking a solicitor to represent you

You can also instruct a solicitor early on in the transaction. If you ask us to represent you, we will let you have the preliminary forms for completion, verify your identity and open a file in readiness. As soon as you have an offer accepted, you can pass our details to the estate agent, who will forward them to the seller’s solicitor. They can then send us the initial contract package as soon as it is available. Having a solicitor in place and ready to go can cut down on the time taken to reach readiness for exchange of contracts.

Ordering a survey

It is always advisable to have a professional survey carried out when you purchase a property and not to rely on your lender’s valuation. A surveyor will be able to recommend a survey with the right level of detail for your requirements. For example, if you are buying an older or unusual property or you want to make substantial alterations, a full structural survey may be recommended.

If any issues are revealed in the survey, you may be able to agree on an allowance against the purchase price to take into account the cost of remedial works.

Having searches and enquiries carried out

As soon as we receive the contract package from your seller’s solicitor, we will start work. We will go through the legal title and any other documentation we are sent and return to the other side with a list of enquiries. We will also order the necessary searches such as a local search and drainage enquiries.

Signing the paperwork

Once we have all of the information we need, along with your mortgage offer, we will report to you, drawing your attention in particular to anything unusual. If you are happy to proceed, you can sign the contract and the mortgage deed so that we are ready to exchange contracts. You will also need to let us have cleared funds for the deposit which we will need to pay to the other side when the exchange takes place. This is usually for 10% of the purchase price, but it is possible to use the deposit on a related sale if you have one.

Exchanging contracts

We will discuss completion dates with you and check with the other side and the rest of the chain to see if a date can be agreed upon. Once everyone is ready to proceed, contracts can be exchanged, and the completion date can be set.

Arranging completion

We will order your mortgage advance and let you know how much we will need from you to complete the purchase. The final checks of the title will be made, then on the day of completion we will send the balance of purchase money to the seller’s solicitor. We will let you know once they have the funds, and they will advise the estate agent that the keys can be released to you.

| Property sales

If you are selling a property, you can ask us to represent you as soon as you decide to put the property on the market. This will give you plenty of time to fill in the property information forms and fixtures and fittings list and let us have the initial information we will need from you to start work.

We can then make sure that the contract package is ready to be sent to your buyer’s solicitor as soon as you agree on a sale.

We always stay in close touch with other parties to ensure that transactions keep moving forward effectively.

We will obtain a mortgage redemption statement and let you know how much will be payable to you on completion. Once everyone in the chain is ready to exchange, we will liaise with you as to dates and then deal with the exchange.

On the day of completion, we will redeem any existing mortgage and forward the balance of the sale proceeds to you.

| Transfers of equity

If a property is being transferred from joint names to your sole name or from your sole name into joint names, we can prepare the transfer document and advise you on the implications of the transaction.

It is particularly important to take steps to protect your interests if you are transferring your property into joint names with someone else and we can make sure that you have the representation you need.

We can also deal with related matters such as a remortgage and making a will.

| Property remortgage

If you are remortgaging your property, you will generally need a solicitor to represent you and your new lender. We will need to carry out similar work that is done on a purchase to satisfy the lender that the title is sound and the search results acceptable.

We know that it is often important to move to a new deal without delay and we will work proactively to complete as quickly as possible.

| Equity release

Equity release policies allow you to free capital from your home while still being able to live there. There are pros and cons to equity release, and we will make sure that you are aware of the implications before you go ahead, providing you with the independent legal advice that you are required to have.
