Buying or selling your house is often described as a simple process! However, at Catchpole Law, we know that more often than not the “simple” process can be complicated by jargon and pitfalls that you don’t really understand.
What do exchange; completion; covenants; planning restrictions; rights and reservations; pre-emptions; flying or creeping freeholds all mean? Should I have a survey? What are searches? Why are my neighbours allowed to come onto my property? Is my property connected to mains water and electricity? Does the property have access to the Public Highway?
Why is the purchase of a rural property different to that of a house on a modern estate? What is the difference between registered and unregistered title? What is The Land Registry? Why do you have to exchange contracts and then complete the sale? What is happening with your money?
The bottom line is that these are all considerations that our property lawyers will take in to account to allow you to achieve what you want:
A simple process that delivers a sale or purchase.
