Purchasing a new home can be an extremely time-consuming and complicated experience if you don’t have the right help. Irrespective of whether you are a first-time buyer or have bought property previously, you will need an experienced conveyancing solicitor to help you through the process.

As experienced conveyancers we’ll discuss each of the steps to be undertaken when buying your home, so you can have all the information you need to make the best-informed decisions. So, if you’re looking for a solicitor for buying a house, get a quote for your property purchase you can call us on 0343 507 5151, e-mail us at, fill in our online form or use our conveyancing guide to obtain a quote.

By acting for the buyer in the conveyance of a registered freehold/leasehold property our buying property solicitors will:

  • Check the validity of the title to the property you’re buying
  • Prepare the contract for purchase
  • Search for possible restrictions or problems attached to your new property
  • Prepare all the transfer documents that give you legal ownership of the property
  • Co-ordinate your mortgage requirements
  • Complete the necessary property registration work
  • Manage the exchange and completion of contracts

What else do I need to know about buying a house?

If you are completing your purchase using a mortgage, then it’s essential that this is arranged as soon as possible. While many prefer delaying the mortgage valuation until they are happy with the seller’s documentation, quite often the conveyancing transaction will be a drawn-out process due to the lender’s requirements. We explain the home buying process in more detail on this page.

By sorting out the offer first, any initial issues can be resolved before becoming more complex further down the line.

So, if you’re looking for a solicitor for buying a house, get a quote today for your property purchase by calling us on 0343 507 5151, e-mailing us at, filling in our online form or using our conveyancing guide to obtain a quote.
