Residential Property Solicitors
Buying or selling your home is exciting. Our specialist conveyancing teams in Lincoln and Newark are qualified in all aspects of property law and are here to help your transaction go as smoothly as possible.
Our Services For You
Our residential property team, headed by Joanne Sworder, is responsive, efficient and smart. You can be confident that Jo and her team will make sure you avoid any property purchasing pitfalls and will protect your interests at every stage, from making an offer to receiving the keys.
Whether you are buying your first home, moving property or purchasing a holiday home, the excitement has to be balanced with the need to ensure that the legal requirements and processes are dealt with correctly and thoroughly. But you can let us worry about that. At the outset you will be told who will be dealing with your transaction. They will explain everything you need to consider and collect all the information and documentation needed to set the process in motion. Our team will also inform you of all the costs and expenses involved in residential property purchases, such as Stamp Duty Land Tax, VAT, Land Registry and search fees.
Making Moving Home Simple
We understand the stress that can be part and parcel of buying or selling a property and our residential property team make it go away. You can rely on us to make sure you receive information and updates when you need them; keep you in touch with progress and explain what is happening at each stage.
Although we try to use plain English, you may come across terminology you are unfamiliar with. To help you we have put together a handy guide to the jargon and legalese you may come across which you can access via the link on the right of this page. You will always work with one dedicated solicitor from start to finish; you will have a direct line number to them and always know your point of contact.
No Hidden Costs
We offer a fixed fee based on the price of your house, whether you will be taking a mortgage or not, and other variables. There is no need to wait until an offer has been accepted and all fees will be explained and agreed up-front. One of the advantages of our services is that we offer 'no exchange no fee' meaning if your sale or purchase does not proceed for any reason, you will not be left having to pay the fees of our legal service.
Please ring 01522 512123, (Lincoln) 01636 673743 (Newark) and ask for a no-obligation quote as soon as you decide to move home. Jo and her team will be happy to help you.
