"Thank you for the exemplary level of service received when purchasing our new home. You made a normally stressful situation feel like a stroll to the nearest pub.

  • Letting Your Property

    If you’re planning to buy-to-let, we can check if there are any legal restrictions on letting the property.

    If you’re buying a freehold house then there should be no such restrictions.

    If the property is leasehold, especially if it is a flat or apartment, it may be subject to a restriction on letting. We’ll advise you on the exact effect of any restrictions on letting, and the legal implications if you were to let in breach of covenant.

    When you’re buying a leasehold property we know it is important that any notices or correspondence from the freeholder or managing agents are sent direct to you and not to the property. We work hard to ensure all legal issues are handled seamlessly while keeping you informed and up-to-date at every step of the way.

    There are set laws and regulations landlords must follow when it comes to dealing with tenants. Our commercial property team are with you all the way and can provide legal advice to landlords on all areas including rent arrears, tenant eviction and enfranchisement and leasehold extension.

  • Releasing Equity in Your Home

    Equity release is a scheme that lets you turn the equity tied up in your home into disposable cash. If you’re a homeowner aged 55-95 and own a property worth at least £50,000, you can take out equity release. There are two main schemes: the lifetime mortgage and the home reversion scheme.

    Lifetime mortgage

    This is the most popular type of equity release scheme. It involves taking out a loan secured on your home, which doesn’t need to be repaid until you die or go into long-term care.

    Home reversion

    This scheme involves selling all or part of your home to a home reversion provider. You can choose to have this as a cash lump sum, regular payments, or both.

    Whichever scheme you choose, we can handle the legal details, make sure everything goes to plan and protect your best interests along the way.

  • Remortgaging Your Home

    In simple terms, remortgaging involves switching your current mortgage to a new deal, arranged either with your existing lender or with a new lender.

    As a current homeowner you may want to consider taking this step for a number of reasons, such as to save money, raise money, consolidate debts or avoid moving home.

    We can guide you through the process and introduce you to reputable independent financial advisers and financial authorities who can help you make the right choice for you.

    What’s involved?

    The lender will require a valuation to ensure the value of your property is sufficient for them to lend on.

    You'll be required to make an application in the same way as when buying a property. The application has to be underwritten by the lender, who will require evidence that the loan/mortgage to date has been maintained. They'll then issue you with an offer. This is when we can do the conveyancing work.

    During the conveyancing process, local searches will be conducted and a report and title will be sent to the new lender. Finally, we will ensure your previous lender is repaid when the new lender releases the new mortgage funds. If you're borrowing additional funds, we will release these to you on, or shortly after, completion.

    Is this more expensive than moving?

    The legal fees and legal process for remortgaging are less complex than purchasing. But there are other costs that will apply such as early repayment charges, lender's arrangement fees, brokers fees etc that you will need to consider.
