A house move is often high on people’s list of stressful events. It can be one of the most expensive purchases you will make in your life. Most people choose a lawyer to do the conveyancing work (the legal work) on their behalf. This is because buying and selling a property involves many legal requirements which need taking care of.
Among some of the most important legal tasks are making sure that:
- The proper planning permissions are in place for any development works carried out at the property;
- Making sure that the seller has the legal right to sell the house;
- Ensuring that financial obligations will have been paid prior to completion;
- Preparing and agreeing contracts with the other party and then exchanging contracts.
