Buying property

If you’re looking to purchase property, it’s essential to choose the right solicitor to handle the conveyancing for you. Every detail needs to be absolutely accurate or you could face expensive problems further down the line. Without a highly trained and experienced conveyancer to advise you, the property purchase could fall through due to a missed deadline or inaccuracy in the paperwork.

Our property solicitors in Manchester can help property buyers with:

  • Negotiating the purchase price and conditions of sale - for example, what’s included in the purchase price or whether the sale price needs to be lowered to cover essential work that needs carrying out.
  • Conducting searches - including local authority records, utilities, drainage and wastewater services, land charges register, building proposals, environmental searches and right of way. We can also carry out any optional searches you may request.
  • Contracts and costs - our conveyancers will check over every detail of the property purchase contract to ensure that it fully meets your needs and contains no hidden costs. We’ll carefully review the sale price, property boundaries, fixtures and fittings included in the sale, services to the property and any planning or other legal restrictions.
  • Completing the transaction - as well as agreeing dates for contract exchange and completion with the seller’s solicitor, we’ll transfer the necessary funds on your behalf (once deposited with us) when the time comes to complete the transaction.

A property law expert from Slater and Gordon will make sure that all legal necessities are covered and that all paperwork’s completed and filed correctly. This means your property purchase will be watertight and your interests protected, so that all you need to concentrate on is moving into your new property.
