Buying a Property

At SAS Daniels we understand that buying a house or flat is likely to be the most expensive purchase of your life. The right legal advice can provide you with all the advice and information you need to not only make sure the purchase is right for you but also ensure the transaction runs as smoothly as possible.

What’s the process of buying a house/flat?

When you purchase a property, you are legally required to go through the conveyancing process where a Solicitor (also known as a Conveyancer) will process the transaction with the other side. Ensuring all legal requirements are met and all aspects of a property and its land are investigated.

To help you understand what happens during the conveyancing process and who is responsible for each element of the transaction, we have put together a guide to the conveyancing process for buying a property.

What’s the cost of buying a house/flat?

In any conveyancing process you will have to pay legal fees for the conveyancers work and also a number of disbursements. Disbursements are any expenses incurred by us on your behalf and will include searches and registration fees. To give you an idea of the costs we have detailed these on our conveyancing costs page, here.

There are also useful calculators provided by the government to help you calculate how much Stamp Duty Land Tax you will have to pay and what registration fees you will have to pay.

  • A dedicated, qualified conveyancer for whom you will have a direct telephone number and email address;
  • Regular email, text or phone updates throughout the purchase, whichever is your preferred method of contact;
  • We will provide you with clear cost breakdown at the outset so that there are no hidden surprises;
