Sale of Residential Property

The time to sell a property can come for many different reasons. At Leadenhall Law Group we know that what it is important is to listen to your reasons so we can fully understand your requirements. There are some initial steps that you as the seller can take to get the transaction off to a quick start. The initial documentation we send to you with our Client Care Pack, will need to be filled out and returned to the best of your knowledge. This forms part of the contract pack, so the sooner we have it, the sooner we can send the contracts to the buyer’s solicitors. If you need any help with any of the paperwork, our conveyancing team will be more than happy to assist. Or you can make an appointment at one of offices to go through it with someone in person.

If you are selling a Leasehold property, we find it is usually quicker for you to make contact with the Management Company or Landlord to obtain their sellers pack directly. Once again, the sooner it is received, the sooner we can send it to the Buyers Solicitors for investigation. This can save valuable time later, so if you have any queries or concerns about this, we will always be happy to assist.

Purchase of Residential Property

Purchasing a property is a big investment, whether you are a first time buyer or the owner of an extensive property portfolio. At Leadenhall Law Group we treat each purchase with the respect that parting with a large sum of money deserves. We investigate the legal documentation diligently and efficiently so you can buy your property in full confidence. We report to you comprehensively and explain everything in a simple straightforward manner. We offer impartial legal advice and guidance throughout the transaction, to make sure you are as informed about the process as possible. If you are a first time buyer, we help you to understand the conveyancing process to give you peace of mind. It is important to us that you feel reassured that you have an expert legal team on your side, willing to help and answer all of queries. If you are buying with a mortgage it is important to note that we act for your Lender as well as yourself. Where there are conflicting instructions, we will normally be expected to act in the Lenders best interests, as they are providing the majority of the funds.

Remortgage and Transfer of Equity

We handle all types of Remortgages and Transfer of Equities. A Remortgage involves paying off an existing mortgage with a new mortgage. This is normally done to ensure a better rate or just to release some equity.

A Transfer of Equity can happen for a number of reasons. Most commonly we find it associated with matrimonial matters, where one party is being removed from or added to the legal title. If there is a charge on the title (usually a mortgage) you will need to obtain consent from your Lender first. These transactions can happen a lot quicker than standard conveyances.
