First Time Buyers

Quick Links

Buying your first home is a very exciting time, but is likely to be the most important decision you will ever take in your life.

Not only will you have to pay the costs and expenses in completing the purchase of your first house, but you will be committing yourself to paying a mortgage for many years after you have moved in.

At Spratt Endicott Solicitors we have seen virtually every scenario possible in first-time buying, and are committed to using all of our experience and expertise to help your move go smoothly and get you into your dream home.

What is conveyancing?

Conveyancing is the legal process that a property goes through in order for the ownership titles to change from one person to another. This includes legal and administration work and the process starts once you have had an offer accepted on the property that you wish to buy. The conveyancing process only ends when the final contracts have been signed, monies have been transferred and the purchase is complete.

Who can do conveyancing?

Conveyancing can be carried out by a licensed conveyancer or any solicitor. To ensure that your conveyancing is carried out by experts, it’s essential to choose a firm which is experienced in residential property transactions.​
