selling a property

Sellers benefit from being well prepared before offering a property for sale. It is worthwhile to plan ahead to speed up the process.

You will need guidance on what a buyer will expect in terms of title, planning and building regulation documents, certificates, indemnities and insurances.

If you are buying a property, you will usually want your sale to be co-ordinated with your purchase at contract stage and completion.

If you are retaining land, we can give advice on reserving and granting appropriate rights for access and services, covenants restrictive of how land can be used and making arrangements for new boundaries.

We offer guidance on all legal rights and obligations attaching to the property before you commit to the purchase. You also need to know that you will get good legal title to the property you are buying.
