Buying a property
A number of different things need to happen before a property purchase can be finalised. Our Leeds conveyancing solicitors can handle the following on your behalf:
Our solicitors will conduct the necessary searches in order to protect both the buyer and lender, including the local land charges register and local authority records for details of planning decisions, rights of way and building proposals. We also investigate the drainage and wastewater services to the property, conduct environmental searches and any optional planning searches you’d like us to carry out.
Taking advantage of the expertise of a Slater and Gordon conveyancing solicitor could save you a considerable amount of money. As part of the process of buying a property, we thoroughly investigate whether any costs will be due, such as stamp duty. This helps to ensure there are no nasty surprises later on.
A trained legal eye is essential when reviewing the contract drawn up by the seller’s conveyancer, which sets out essential details such as property boundaries and the sale price. Our conveyancers scrutinise every detail to make sure that all parts of the transaction work for you, meet your expectations and are legally sound.
Our solicitors do much more besides these essential tasks, from liaising with the mortgage company to arrange funds to exchanging contracts and fixing a completion date. Once the purchase is complete, our solicitors will also register you with the Land Registry as the new owner of the property and pay all related fees on your behalf once you’ve transferred the funds to us. You can rely on our highly trained conveyancers to handle every detail for you, so all you need to do is look forward to the moment when you receive the keys to your new property.
Selling a property
If you’re looking to sell your property, choose Slater and Gordon’s Leeds conveyancing team to draw up the contracts and ensure a smooth, stress-free sale. As the legal agreement which details all the terms and conditions related to the transaction, the contract is the single most important part of any property sale. Our solicitors can draw up a contract that you’re 100% happy with and that meets every necessary legal requirement, all with your best interests in mind. Once both parties are satisfied with the contract, we’ll arrange an exchange of contracts and set a date for completion of the transaction.
Selling a property can be daunting, but our conveyancing solicitors in Leeds aim to make it as easy and as hassle-free as possible.
