Your purchase

We will guide you through the purchase of your property by:

  • Sending you a plan of the property at the start of the purchase so that you can check the boundaries before we carry out searches
  • Explaining the contract and title documents to you in writing
  • Providing you with a written report on the searches that we carry out
  • Advising you in writing on what your mortgage offer means
  • Co-ordinating with you, the sellers’ solicitor and the estate agents to agree a completion date
  • Providing you with a detailed breakdown of the monies we will need from you in order to complete your purchase
  • Sending you a copy of your title to the property once it has been registered with you as the new owner.

Your sale

We will help you with the sale of your property by:

  • Asking you to complete information forms for the buyer at the start of the sale
  • Discussing with you any enquiries raised by the buyers solicitor
  • Providing you with a detailed breakdown of the monies we will need to pay on your behalf in order to complete your sale. For example money due to your lender to pay off any mortgage on the property
  • Co-ordinating with you, the buyers’ solicitor and the estate agents to agree completion date
  • Sending any monies due to you on the completion date.

How long will it take?

How long it will take from an offer being accepted to the actual move will depend on various factors. On average it takes between 6 to 12 weeks. It can be quicker or slower, depending on the complexity of the legal work required, people in the chain and their circumstances.


Carrying out your Identification check

As part of the work we do for you we will need to carry out photographic ID & proof of residence checks as this is a legal requirement.

We can see you in person at any of our offices with your passport or photo driving licence plus an original utility bill not more than three months old showing your name and address.

If it helps we have an after hours drop in facility at our Wilmslow office on a Thursday from 5 to 6pm to take your ID from you.

Alternatively, for a small fee we can also offer you the use of a third-party app via Thirdfort. Using the app is a secure and easy way to verify your ID if you can’t call to see us in person.



Wills, Trusts & Estates

What else should you think about when buying or selling a property?

Moving home is a good time to think about making a Will or reviewing it if you already have one. A house is often the largest purchase you will ever make so make sure that you consider what you want to happen to it in the event of your death.

You can also protect your future by putting in place Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA’s). There are two types: a Property & Financial Affairs LPA and a Health & Welfare LPA.

If you are thinking about making your Will or putting LPA’s in place, when your sale and/or purchase completes with us, we will offer you a discount on the preparation of these as a thank you.*

    • 10% discount on your Will or Lasting Powers of Attorney
    • 15 % discount if you prepare both a Will and Lasting Power of Attorney
  • Terms and conditions apply

To find out more about making a Will, visit our Wills and Inheritance page.

Your remortgage

If you are remortgaging your property we can help by:

  • Providing you with a written report on what your new mortgage offer means and finding out from your existing lender how much will need to be repaid to them
  • Co-ordinating with you about the best date to complete your remortgage
  • Sending any monies due to you on the day of completion
  • Sending you a copy of your title to the property once your new mortgage has been registered by us

Transfer of property

From time to time you may need to transfer property for other reasons such as for tax planning purposes, on separation or after a death.

Call one of our conveyancers to discuss your requirements in more detail.
