What legal advice can we help with?

Buying a Property

Buying a home can be one of the most important  financial transactions for any individual. We understand how stressful moving house can be and you can be reassured that we are right by your side every step of the way and our experienced lawyers are there to advise and guide you throughout the process. We will be in constant contact with your estate agent and are happy to discuss progress with your mortgage broker as well as with your surveyor if you so require.


It is always advisable to have a survey carried out against the property you are buying and the survey carried out by your mortgage lender may be restricted to a mere valuation of the property. We work very closely with local surveyors and will be happy to assist you with finding a surveyor to carry out a suitable survey. The type of survey you choose will depend on the age and condition of the property and we will discuss and advise you on the options available to you.


If you are taking out a mortgage this will need to be in place and official instructions received by us before exchange of contracts.  We are able to put you in contact with local mortgage brokers who may assist you with choosing the right mortgage for you.


If you are taking a mortgage, the mortgage lender will be relying on us to carry out certain searches to protect their interests.  If this is a cash purchase these searches will be carried out to protect your interests unless you give us specific instructions not to. We will discuss the search options and packages with you at the time for you be able to decide which searches are most relevant to the property you are buying.
