First time buyer? Don’t worry! Buying a home can be easy

Would you love to buy your first home, but feel a bit baffled and overwhelmed by the paperwork and legal requirements?

There’s no need to worry: all you need to do is partner up with a mortgage solicitor in London who has your best interests at heart.

Here at Saracens Solicitors, we believe we do. That’s because we pride ourselves on our client-centred approach to mortgage advice:

  • We are recognised for excellence by peers: the Law Society has awarded us Lexcel status and accredited us as part of the Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Only first-rate firms receive these awards.

How does conveyancing work?

Conveyancing is simply the word used to describe the process of changing the ownership of property, which in England, must be carried out by a licensed professional, such as a solicitor.

Once instructed, the mortgage solicitor in London will carry out a conveyancing report on the home you want to buy. This involves asking the relevant local authority and water company for information to find out if your home or the local environment is likely to be affected by any structural or environmental issues in the years to come.

As your mortgage solicitor in London, we put this information into a report, in plain language, so you can easily understand if there are any issues likely to affect your potential new home and we also outline your responsibilities to the bank in taking out a mortgage with them.
