Establishing the chain
We first help establish that the chain of transactions is complete and will let you know how far the chain extends and make sure that all parties appear to be ready to proceed before you instruct us to undertake any work. This helps ensure that you avoid any unnecessary expense.

Preliminary Enquiries
The seller’s solicitor will send us a contract which includes details of the Sellers ownership of the property (known as “title”) and any other relevant documents for the property you are purchasing. We examine the contract to ensure that it agrees with your instructions and does not contain any unacceptable provisions. We check the title documents to confirm that the seller has the right to sell the property and send any enquiries to the seller’s solicitor and carry out any necessary searches. We will report to you on the documentation received and discuss with you any areas of concern.

Exchange of contracts
Once we have satisfactory responses to our enquiries and searches, the contract can be approved. You will need to ensure you have obtained any necessary mortgage at this stage. Contracts can then be formally exchanged so that all the parties involved in the chain are committed to complete their transactions on an agreed date.

Completion
After exchange, we make any final searches and prepare any relevant documents for you to sign. We request the mortgage funds and let you know if we need any balance to complete the purchase. On the completion date, we transfer the purchase money to the bank of the seller’s solicitor, using our own secure electronic payment terminal. After completion we deal with any stamp duty land tax requirements and register your ownership (and any mortgage) at the Land Registry before sending the deeds to your lender who retains them for the duration of the mortgage. If you have no mortgage, you may choose to store them, free of charge, in our security vault.

I would like to thank you for the way in which you dealt with this matter all the way through. Particularly I would express my thanks for your prompt replies to all enquiries that I raised and for keeping me so well informed of the progress of the case.

Natasha Kelt, Litigation

I must say her handling of the transaction was first rate and very professional. Always available and she was never afraid to pick up the phone and share information when it was better to communicate that way rather than just email, a blessing in this day and age. Though both parties were keen for a quick exchange she never allowed that pressure to mean she cut any corners with her enquiries and was always working in my best interests.

I will be more than happy to work with her again in the future and will certainly recommend her to friends and associates who require similar services.

Amber Day, Property

We would like to thank you and your team so much for all the help and advice we received and for acting in a courteous and professional manner at all times. Thank you also Lee for patiently addressing all the issues we raised and for explaining everything to us so clearly, sometimes repeatedly, until you were satisfied we fully understood the more complex issues with our Wills; you personally, were highly recommended to us by one of your grateful clients. Likewise, we too would not hesitate to highly recommend you to anybody planning to make a Will.
