What you need to know about buying a property

Buying a property can feel daunting and stressful at times. This is why, at TV Edwards, we make the process as smooth as possible so you don’t have to worry about the legal side. Buying a property is one of your most important purchases and it is important to pick a Solicitor who will look after your interests but who you also feel comfortable with.

“You have been really kind and helpful from the day I met you. I wish all other solicitors behave and act like you, not just driven by fees. My pleasure to be your client.”

–       Client recommendation for Naomi Jones, Property and Probate Partner

There are numerous different ways of buying a property:

  • You might have found a freehold house or a leasehold flat.
  • The property might be a new build, or you may be starting out with a shared ownership property.
  • Where you are purchasing a flat with a long lease, there could be a Management Company or you could also receive a share of the freehold.

Each transaction will have its own particular aspects and considerations. Whatever the transaction, we have a range of specialist Solicitors who can assist.

There are also numerous ways of financing your property purchase

Whether it’s a standard mortgage, a gift or loan from a friend or relative, your own savings or some combination, we will sensitively guide you through what you need to provide to evidence the available funds.

We act for a full range of clients from first time buyers to experienced property investors and we tailor our service to our individual client, based on your needs and expectations.

There are numerous legal steps involved in buying a property which can feel overwhelming.

As soon as you instruct us, we take care of everything on your behalf, communicating with the Seller’s Solicitor, the Estate Agents and your mortgage broker to make sure that we work with everyone to progress the purchase as efficiently as possible. We take care of your mortgage, paying your stamp duty land tax and any other matters which crop up. We talk you through the steps involved at each stage, so you know exactly where we are in the process and what the next steps are.

Sometimes, issues do come up.

We carry out a thorough investigation of title so that you are fully aware of any potential issues with the property you are purchasing before the purchase goes through. We talk through and explain any issues with you and advise you on how they should be dealt with. We are proactive and come up with solutions to enable you to progress. We are experienced in all aspects of property law, not just conveyancing so can assist with any other required ancillary matters such as Declarations of Trust and Lease Extensions.

So, why us?

We are friendly, experienced Solicitors who care about your purchase.

With up-to-date expert knowledge of property law, we build relationships with our clients throughout their transactions and as a result, many of our clients are repeat clients or referrals from family/ friends.

We take on a select number of cases so that we can be fully attentive to all our clients. We think this is a winning combination, demonstrated by some of our feedback below:

“Thank so much for all your assistance with this – it would have been even more difficult without your help and advice. It was so reassuring to know that you were dealing with everything and were always available.”

“I have very much appreciated your quick and precise views given with every step all through.”

“We could not have asked for a more professional, astute, thorough and personable relationship.”
