Why choose Stephensons when buying a house?
What we quote for is what we do – other solicitors may ‘appear’ to be cheaper but that is often because they don’t cover all costs. Our quotes include the price of compulsory searches in our quotes, referred to as disbursements so that you are fully aware of the total cost but do not make up part of our legal fees.
Once you instruct us to act for you on your property purchase a case manager will be allocated to your file and you will have their contact details – including direct dial and email address – this will provide you with certainty that your case is being handled by your own dedicated specialist who will be more than happy to discuss your purchase to ensure that you are fully aware of the process.
Buying a property
Once you have found a property that you wish to purchase, our specialist conveyancing solicitors will obtain a package of searches against the house you wish to buy, this will provide you with information about the property and its surrounding area.
Our residential property solicitors will check the title to the property to ensure that you obtain a good and marketable title so that it can be re-sold in the future.
If you are obtaining a mortgage to fund the purchase of the property our conveyancing solicitors will advise you about the terms and conditions of the mortgage offer received. If you are paying for the property without a mortgage you will need to arrange to have those funds available in time for the house purchase to proceed.
Once all of these things are in place our conveyancing solicitors will provide a full report on the property to you and ask you to sign the necessary documents. When those have been signed we can usually proceed to complete the purchase of your property. On the completion day you will be given the keys to your new property.
