UK Law places all the responsibility of researching a property onto the buyer. It’s known as ‘caveat emptor’ or ‘buyer beware.’ Our expert conveyancing team work on your behalf to make sure all of the research is carried out swiftly and that you’re kept up to date with all of the results. Our goal is to provide you with expert, caring and candid advice throughout one of life’s most important transactions.
Do you have a new project in mind? We understand that commercial property conveyancing can be particularly cumbersome due to the number of parties involved in a transaction; such as the Landlord’s solicitors, the superior landlords, the seller`s solicitors (outgoing tenant- if leasehold), the buyer’s solicitors (incoming tenant- if leasehold), the sub-tenants and the guarantors. This is why it is important when choosing your commercial conveyancing solicitor, to ensure they have the time, expertise and experience in your area.
Examples of an equity transfer could be adding a spouse to the deed after marriage, removing a friend’s name after buying them out their share, or even changing ownership entirely (such as a parent transferring a property to their child).
To remortgage, it’s always the terms and requirements of the new lender that are met. The old lender will simply be paid off with the new borrowed amount. If there’s no lender, a new charge is registered on the property.
A simple will is under the inheritance tax threshold or simply leaving their assets to a few family and friends or charities. With no will in place, the division of your estate falls to intestacy rules which can cause significant problems for loved ones and leave intended beneficiaries completely out of the picture.
Our approach to clients is to offer a full service which is speedy and efficient whilst being empathetic to your needs. We understand that during probate transactions clients appreciate a clear and concise approach and will guide you through the process.
If you have owned a leasehold property for more than 2 years you will often have the right to extend the term of the lease. Properties with short leases are often harder to get a mortgage on, and subsequently difficult to sell, if your lease is coming to 85 years or below, it may be something you wish to consider.
