Buying a house or flat

Buying a house or flat is an exciting time, Ansons residential property lawyers in Lichfield and Cannock can help make the conveyancing experience as stress free as possible.

Once your purchase has been agreed, we will guide you through the whole process, acting on your behalf from the pre-contract enquiries to exchange of contracts and finally to completion.

Our friendly and experienced conveyancing solicitors can advise you on which searches need to be carried out and recommend what survey should be carried out on the property for your mortgage offer.

If you are buying a leasehold property, we will make sure that you understand the terms of the lease and any covenants (obligations) contained in it. We can also help you extend the term of the lease.

If you are not married, we strongly advise you to consider a cohabitation agreement to avoid disputes if you should separate at a later date.

We will take care of all the necessary paperwork in relation to stamp duty land tax and registering the legal title of the property to you as the new owner with the Land Registry.

Our comprehensive approach means that we will liaise with estate agents on both sides and your mortgage lender to ensure that your property purchase is completed as soon as possible.

If you are buying a property with someone else, we will also discuss with you how you want to own the property together; as joint tenants or tenants in common. We will advise on the different legal implications when you come to sell your home or leave it in your estate.
