Buying or Selling a House
Whether you are a first-time buyer or have moved before, buying or selling a property can be a complicated and stressful time. But it doesn’t have to be that way. At Woodgrange Solicitors, we understand both the complexities of the law and our clients’ needs – helping them tackle the formalities of a house sale or purchase as smoothly and quickly as possible.
You will be allocated an expert advisor as your single point of contact during every stage of the process, ensuring a worry-free and seamless transaction, from offer right through to completion. This includes dealing with your estate agent and mortgage lender, as well as organising surveys and home reports on your behalf – and explaining clearly what the results mean.
And because we know that this can be an expensive time, we’ll make sure there are no nasty surprises, by providing you with a clear and accurate estimate of all costs – including your legal fees and stamp duty.
Remortgaging Advice, Equity Transfer and Lease Drafting
There are many reasons why you may want to remortgage: perhaps you want to borrow money against the value of your property to put towards something else; maybe you wish to change lender; or it could be that you simply want a better deal. No matter what your goals are, we can help you achieve them. Our conveyancing experts will make the process painless and straightforward, ensuring that your interests are met at every step of the way.
We can also offer advice on equity transfer, when one or more joint property owners wish to sell their interest to another, either due to marriage, divorce, tax planning or adjustment of financial shares. Our residential property experts also advise on shared ownership property and Right to Buy or Housing Association schemes (including staircasing – when you purchase a further share in your home).
On occasions when freeholders or leaseholders want to make changes to a lease – including lease extensions and leasehold enfranchisement – we can handle all negotiations and drafting, as well as ensuring that our clients are fully aware of their rights and obligations under any new lease terms.
Islamic Mortgage Transactions
Financing the purchase of your home with an Islamic mortgage (also known as a ‘halal’ mortgage) can be complicated, as this requires economic pragmatism whilst remaining compliant with principles of Sharia law. Fortunately our team is fully conversant with all aspects of Islamic mortgage law and Home Purchase Plans (HPPs) – including the Ijara, Musharaka and Murabaha models – so you can rest assured that we’ll progress things smoothly and achieve the best outcome on your behalf.
For clear and helpful advice on buying or selling, as well as any other residential property queries, call us today and we’ll be happy to discuss your requirements.
