About residential property cases

Residential property law is particularly complicated, and without the right support, transactions can go wrong and issues could crop up that could have otherwise been avoided. Our solicitors will help to ensure these processes run as smoothly as possible by gaining an understanding of exactly what you want.

We will tailor our services to your needs, so you can rest assured we will find the best solution for you.

We can offer advice in the following areas:

  • Conveyancing
  • Remortgaging
  • Leasehold property
  • Joint ownership/transfer of ownership
  • Adaptation
  • Auction sales and purchases
  • Transferring equity
  • Tenancy agreements
  • Builders and developers
  • Buy-to-let sales or purchases
  • All types of leasehold property

Quickstep is here to help

If you are planning to sell your house, you are likely to experience challenges to the price you want to achieve if your purchaser is able to point out unexplained title problems or historic planning, building irregularities or other anomalies.

Lupton Fawcett’s Quickstep offers a reliable, inexpensive solution.

Our experienced solicitor-led team of conveyancing solicitors will prepare for you a full report highlighting issues any prospective purchaser is likely to raise.  It will include a full title report and advice on how to resolve any issues which may limit the saleability of your property.

Lupton Fawcett’s Quickstep will help you to discover, for example

  • Whether any title or other important documents are missing.
  • Anything in the title which might limit the ability of a purchaser to obtain mortgage funding.
  • Problems with planning permissions, building regulations consents.
  • Whether any pre-existing covenants have been breached.

What does Lupton Fawcett’s Quickstep cost?

If you instruct us to prepare a Quickstep report, it will be free of charge* provided you complete a sale of your property within 9 months of the date of the report and you instruct Lupton Fawcett to act for you in the sale at our prevailing charge rate (which will vary depending on the sale price and other factors).  If you do not meet these criteria, then our charge of £150 (plus VAT) will be payable.

How do we get started?

Please complete the questionnaire. We will review this and then contact you to discuss how to take the matter forward.
