Residential Conveyancing

Buying a new home is an exciting experience. At Saracens, our aim is to ensure the process is never stressful for our clients. Our London-based mortgage and conveyancing solicitors have the expertise and dedication to minimise any worries you may have, completing your property transaction swiftly and smoothly.

When buying a property, knowledge is power

Our London mortgage solicitors and conveyancing team will keep you fully informed of your transaction’s progress. We will provide you with a clear, concise report that explains the legal implications in plain non-legal terms. This allows you to make informed decisions before signing on the dotted line.

Saracens’ London mortgage solicitors and conveyancers’ services

To ensure the property you buy elicits no nasty surprises after you have signed the contract, our mortgage solicitors and conveyancers, whose offices are based opposite London’s Marble Arch, will complete thorough due diligence on your new home. We will apply for searches from local authorities and water authorities (wherever necessary) and quickly report back findings. These search reports provide vital information about the property you are purchasing and the surrounding areas. Our partner-led conveyancing team will diligently inspect the documents, and advise you if any anomalies or concerns appear.

Our London-based mortgage solicitors will advise you on the legal aspects of obtaining a mortgage. They will ensure you understand the key terms of your loan agreement and your obligations to the bank.

Partner-led, people focused

Our firm ethos is “building trust through understanding”. Therefore, we are not a firm that conducts cheap, ’push them through’ conveyancing transactions to bolster client numbers. Instead, each file is handled by one dedicated legal advisor who will guide you through the process and our mortgage solicitors and conveyancers are led by our London-based partner, Fraz Butt. Fraz and his teams provide the same level of service to all our clients, whether they are high-net-worth foreign investors or a couple buying their first home. Our entire firm is committed to providing bespoke service at an affordable price.

Our accreditations

Not only have our management processes been accredited and awarded Lexcel status, we also hold a Conveyancing Quality Scheme accreditation. Both these endorsements are given by the Law Society of England and Wales, and demonstrate our London mortgage solicitors and conveyancers’ commitment to providing excellent service to all our clients.
