About Buying and Selling a Property
Typically, a transaction can take between 6-8 weeks from the offer being accepted to completion and the handing over of the keys. Our solicitors can ensure that transactions are concluded as expected and without any stress or delay being placed on the client.
For purchases, it is important to obtain up-to-date official searches that relate to the property and the surrounding area. These searches are very informative and ensure that title is clear and marketable to the property being purchased. If you’re buying a flat, enquiries need to be made with the landlord and management company to ensure that you are well aware of their obligations at the property moving forward.
For sales, it is crucial to prepare a comprehensive sales pack at the earliest stage for release to the buyer’s solicitor. This pack should contain evidence of the seller’s title, various property questionnaires and associated guarantees. By providing a complete bundle early in the transaction, delays can be avoided when it comes to completion.
