  • Proceeding to raise necessary enquiries and conduct property searches
  • Checking the details of your mortgage offer, then allowing you to sign the mortgage deed and the contract

Leasehold purchases and sales

Purchasing a flat or another type of leasehold tends to be more complicated in comparison to a freehold transaction. It is necessary to obtain a significant amount of information related to the lease, as well as the property management. The type of information required includes, but is not limited to:

  • A copy of the lease
  • A copy of the freehold title
  • Management company accounts
  • Evidence of the amount held in a sinking fund
  • A copy of the buildings insurance policy
  • Planning consent and building regulations approval, where necessary
  • A copy of the landlord’s consent to any alterations

If you are preparing to sell a leasehold property our conveyancing solicitors will collect all of this necessary information, communicating with the management agent or company to obtain all of the documents you will need.

Newbuild purchases

It is not uncommon for developers to set tight deadlines for newbuild buyers. Our expert solicitors are accustomed to this, capable of working efficiently and swiftly, ensuring that you will be ready for the contract exchange by the date required.

The documentation required when purchasing a newbuild property includes, but is not limited to the following:

  • A newbuild warranty
  • Building regulations approval
  • Planning consents
  • A transfer document containing numerous restrictive covenants

Our conveyancing experts have much experience in newbuild conveyancing processes. We will ensure that you understand the processes, and are always kept in the loop.


If you are planning on remortgaging a property, you will need conveyancing lawyers to represent both you and your new lender. We have much experience conducting the necessary due diligence work, so you can rest assured you’re in safe hands.

We will obtain a mortgage redemption statement at the earliest opportunity, providing you with an idea of how much you will receive on completion. When the completion date is agreed upon, we will then obtain the final figure.

After completion day, our conveyancing solicitors will discharge the existing mortgage, provide a balance of funds, and ensure that your new loan is registered with the Land Registry.

Transfers of equity

If you need support to transfer a property into joint names, or from joint names into sole names, our expert conveyancing solicitors can handle this for you. We will ensure that you understand how this works, as well as the implications.

We can inform you of the different types of joint ownership, making sure that you choose the right option for your circumstances.
