Property Law Solicitors

Our property team can help with anything to do with owning a property or lease.  Below is a summary of the services we provide, but please take a look at the full details of our property law services.

Property Investment

If you are a property investor, or would like to become one, we can provide you with practical advice. As well as the necessary information on buying or selling properties, we can advise on the preparation of tenancy agreements and also, with possible ‘Houses in Multiple Occupation’ issues. Our solicitors can help with tenancy disputes, including court proceedings if required.

Remortgaging Your Property

Are you changing your mortgage to secure a better rate? Or looking to take money out of the property for a project or a holiday?  We can offer a swift and efficient remortgaging service and we are extremely competitively priced.

Equity Release or Later Life Mortgages

The term equity release or later life mortgage refers to a particular type of re-mortgage. This is aimed at those in later life who no longer have the income to make regular mortgage payments, but who want access to the capital in their homes.

Gift to a Family Member

Do you wish to gift all or part of your property to a family member? Perhaps as part of an estate planning exercise, then we can assist you. Our solicitors can provide advice to you on the possible tax implications

Transfers of Equity

If the need for a transfer of equity arises, it is a relatively simple matter to document the change. We can prepare the necessary documents for you and register them at the Land Registry.

Declarations of Trust

Where different people have an interest in the same property, it is always advisable to consider making a Declaration of Trust.  A Declaration of Trust is a private document that is legally binding to all parties. It records their various interests in the property.

Severing your Joint Tenancy

If you need to sever a joint tenancy of your property, for estate planning purposes or otherwise, we can assist with the notices and Land Registry documents.

Altering or Extending your Home

Before you embark on any extensive and costly alteration or extension works to your home, we can review your title.

Boundary Agreements

Boundary disputes can be very disruptive and costly to resolve. If you have any boundaries that are not clearly defined but which are not currently disputed, you may wish to consider the preparation of a simple boundary agreement.

Leasehold Property

There are particular issues that can arise when you own leasehold property or you own freehold property that is subject to a long lease. One of our areas of speciality is acting for landlords, tenants and management companies in dealing with issues specific to leasehold property.

If you own a residential property and the lease term is approaching having only 80 years or less left before it expires you should consider extending your lease now.

Managing or Purchasing your Building

Many flat owners are entitled to take over the management of their building or collectively buy the freehold of the building. There are specific procedures set out in the relevant legislation that must be followed to exercise these rights, which we can guide you through whether you are a flat owner or a landlord.

We also have expertise in dealing with the sale and purchase of freehold properties that are subject to long residential leases. There are specific statutory requirements in certain cases and notices offering the property to the flat owners will be required by the seller, we can ensure that these are dealt with properly at an early stage to prevent delays.
