Our property services

We’re proud to have some of the most experienced conveyancing solicitors in the country. Between them, our lawyers have decades of experience in property issues of all kinds.

Property purchases

Buying a property is probably one of the biggest purchases you’ll ever make. It’s therefore vital to get it right and to ensure that all legal aspects are covered.

Choose our conveyancing solicitors to handle the legal aspects of your purchase. Our property experts will guide you smoothly through the process, all the way through to that happy day when you get the keys to your new home. Our full service covers:

  • Conducting searches and carrying out checks - including boundary checks, planning permission, the property’s right of way, environmental and drainage surveys and local authority checks.
  • Negotiating the price and conditions of sale - including what’s included in the purchase price and whether this figure needs to be reduced in order to account for the cost of essential work that must be carried out on the property.
  • Arranging the exchange of contracts - this happens when both buyer and seller are happy with the contract of sale and want to set a date for the contracts to be exchanged. At this stage, both parties are legally committed to the sale.
  • Completion - many things need to happen in a very short time for a property purchase to be completed, including last minute financial checks and transfers of funds. Finally, the Land Registry need to be informed of the change of ownership.

Our conveyancing specialists can coordinate all of the above smoothly and efficiently, so that your purchase proceeds with no delay. We can also offer expert advice and provide information about what to expect next.

Please call our conveyancing solicitors on freephone 0808 175 8000 to ask a question or appoint us to handle your property purchase.

Selling a property

When selling your home or another property, you need just as much legal protection as the buyer. Property law and the process for selling property in the UK exists to make sure that all essential details are decided to everyone’s satisfaction, and that no one’s taken advantage of.

If you need a legal expert to help with your property sale, you’ve come to the right place. Even if you’ve only just put your property on the market, it’s important to move fast once those offers start to come in.

Our conveyancing solicitors can help with the essentials and the small print of the sale contract, as well as negotiating on your behalf with the buyer. When you bring in a property expert to help with your sale, it makes the whole process much easier and less stressful. Let our conveyancing specialists handle the legal aspects of the sale on your behalf, leaving you with more time to plan your house move.

We can also help if you’re buying a property at the same time as selling your current home. You have enough to deal with when selling a property and searching for a new home, so trust the legal side of things to the Slater and Gordon team.
