You want to buy, they want to sell. What could be simpler?
In an ideal world, it would be simple to buy and sell property. In principle it is. In practice, however, there are a huge number of things which must happen before the keys are handed over.
For example, you need to make sure the seller actually owns the property. You probably need to organise finance to buy it. It is the seemingly unending series of things which need to be checked that make the process sometimes seem endless. It is a process that will only move forward as quickly as the slowest part.
We think the key issues in making sure our clients come back to us everytime they move (and they do) are:
- Keeping our clients informed about what is happening on a regular basis;
- being organised so we drive the process on behalf of our clients - chasing up other parties in the process;
- and offering good advice and a sympathetic ear at all times.
Have we just completed a residential property matter with you?
At Batchelors we constantly strive to improve the service we offer. We would be grateful if you could spare a few moments to complete a survey using the link below.
For residential matters we believe we are unique and stand out from the bulk conveyancing type firms because we provide individual service to clients with a named lawyer assigned to each case and access to that lawyer by a direct telephone number and email. Those lawyers are either qualified or in the process of obtaining qualification unlike the bulk conveyancing firms who employ unqualified staff.
The residential team acts for clients on:
- Residential sales, purchases and remortgages of both freehold and leasehold properties.
- Transfers of equity including by gift and on divorce.
- Right to buy and right to acquire purchases from Councils, Housing Associations and other registered social landlords.
- Shared ownership and home buy leases.
- Acquisition of freehold reversions by flat owners and the formation of flat management companies.
