Energy Performance Certificates
You no longer need a HIP to sell your property but must provide an energy performance certificate (EPC). We can organise these for you, working with local EPC surveyors – simply contact our property Lawyers for more information on this.
Free Deed Storage
Our Conveyancing Lawyers can store your house deeds free of charge in our fire-proof storage.
Buying a Property
Once you find your dream home and have your offer accepted, instruct your property Lawyers immediately. If you need a mortgage, make getting that your priority – or risk being delayed later. Once instructed, your Lawyer will obtain the estate agent’s Memorandum of Sale giving details of the sale and a Seller’s Package (including the draft contract, details of title and property information). Your Conveyancing Lawyers then makes a local search – dealing with issues including planning permission and whether your property is in a conservation area etc.
Selling a Property
The first step is to find your buyer. Don’t forget if you use an estate agent to consider how commission will be paid. Our Conveyancing Lawyers can advise whether sole agency, multiple agency or joint sole agency is right for you.

Transfers of Equity
When partnerships or marriages end, often one owner buys the other’s share. The value of this share (known as equity) is the difference between the outstanding mortgage and your home’s current value. It is essential that the property transfer is recognised in law to ensure the owner selling their share is released from any commitment and mortgage on the property.
