Property Purchase

If you are a first-time buyer (or perhaps you are just unsure of the procedures involved), then we hope that the following summary will give you a brief insight into what happens behind the scenes – from a legal point of view.        

You should contact us as soon as you have found a suitable property to purchase.        

We will ask you to complete one or two forms from the outset which will help to avoid any delays later on.        

As soon as we have received the title documents and a draft contract from the seller’s solicitors, we will put in hand the various searches, investigate title and raise enquiries, as appropriate.        

We will keep you updated about progress and advise you of anything likely to cause a delay.        

As soon as we have received satisfactory replies to our enquiries, search results and a copy of your mortgage offer, we will report to you with the contract for signature.        

A deposit is required at this stage for exchange of contracts.        

Assuming that all parties are in a position to proceed, a completion date is agreed on and exchange takes place.        

You will now be in a position to confirm your removals.        

We will liaise with you before completion to ensure that you have all financial means in place and will request your mortgage funds.        

On completion, we will send the balance purchase monies to the seller’s solicitors; as soon as they have received them, we will telephone you to confirm that you may pick up the keys.
