SELLING For a fixed fee of £720 we will check the title when the property is marketed by your Agent, manage initial transactions and source all documentation relating to your home. We will then negotiate the contract on your behalf with the buyer’s solicitor. We will draw up purchase and sale contract letters of negotiation, referred to as missives.
Property transfers , both selling and buying, involve Disbursements to third parties for reports, registrations and searches etc.. These are extra but we can tell you the likely amounts. VAT is not included in our prices
The missives will set a fixed date of entry which both parties are expected to work towards. After the conclusion of missives we will manage the paperwork involved in the legal transfer of the property to your buyer.
BUYING You need to employ a solicitor when buying a property because of the amount of money being spent and the complexity of contracts entered into. Although solicitors in Scotland are central to much of the property transaction, because they often market the property on behalf of the seller, their key task is in negotiating and checking the contracts and handling the transfer of the Title and cash.
It is useful to employ us early on in the process of buying a property, as we will have more experience in the process than you and we work on a fixed fee of £720 , so the timing rarely affects the cost. An important step in buying a property is setting up a mortgage loan. That may take some weeks.
We complete the transaction by paying the stamp duty land tax and arrange for the signed title deed to be registered with the land registry
