Buying or selling a property is often the most significant transaction that anyone will enter into. The residential conveyancing solicitors at Montecristo LLP appreciate that this process can be a stressful one. As such, we aim to provide our clients with a service that is both efficient and responsive, offering comprehensive legal support from the earliest stage of your transaction all the way to its conclusion.

We pride ourselves on our reputation for exceptional communication – by instructing a residential conveyancing solicitor from Montecristo LLP you can be sure that you will be kept fully appraised of any developments as we work towards settlement, whether you are based inside or outside the UK. When buying or selling a property, you can rely on our residential conveyancing team to ensure that your transaction is completed as quickly and as smoothly as possible.

Our residential conveyancing lawyers provide the following services:

• Sales and purchases of freehold and leasehold property – pre-owned and new build
• Lease extensions
• Assignments of new build contracts
• Transfers of equity
• Remortgages
• Plot sales
• Option agreements
• Grants of lease

When you have identified a property that you would like to buy, the specialist residential conveyancing solicitors at Montecristo LLP will undertake all relevant searches relating to the house to give you detailed information about the property and the surrounding area. We will carry out a check of the title so you can be sure that there are no issues that would prevent you being able to sell the property in the future and to satisfy your lender. When it comes to obtaining a mortgage, our residential conveyancing lawyers can advise on the terms and conditions of your prospective mortgage so that you are fully aware of these and can make an informed choice about which offer to accept. If you are purchasing your property without a mortgage, we can support you to ensure that funds are ready and available for when you need to transfer these to the seller.

Our residential conveyancing solicitors are on hand to provide you with all the support and guidance you need when selling your home. We will work closely with you to make sure that all property information forms are filled out accurately. These are the documents which list the important information about the house, as well as details about what fixtures, fittings and contents will be included as part of the sale. We can liaise on your behalf with solicitors acting on behalf of prospective buyers, answering any questions they may have. Once a buyer confirms that they are willing to proceed with the purchase, we will ensure that any existing mortgage is paid off, arrangements are made handing over the keys and that all proceeds from the sale are transferred to you.

Our residential property solicitors can offer essential legal support for those seeking to release the equity in their home to allow them to have a more comfortable retirement, to make improvements to their home, to provide financial support for children or grandchildren, or for any other reason. We can advise on the equity release scheme that is right for you and your circumstances.
