Residential property transactions are on the rise, with the latest data from HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) revealing that 1,231,120 home purchases made their way past the completion stage in 2016 – that’s 5,150 more than in 2015.
Furthermore, data suggests an upward trend towards the end of the year, while separate studies suggest that a record number of first-time buyers managed to get a foot on the property ladder in 2016. In fact, according to high street mortgage lender Halifax, the number of first-time buyers completing on home purchases hit a nine-year high last year.
But whether you are purchasing a home for the first-time, downsizing or moving on to bigger and better things, buying a property is one of the most important – and stressful – purchases any person is ever likely to make, and it is important to have experienced, expert advisers on hand to guide you through the complex conveyancing process step-by-step.
Palmers Solicitors has a large Residential Conveyancing department, whose solicitors and conveyancers have over one hundred years of experience between them. Our team specialise in advising people in and around Essex, South East England and beyond on property purchases, residential conveyancing and more.
This month, we will be welcoming new conveyancing executive Caroline McCullagh to our team, who will be bringing her extensive background in all aspects of conveyancing – including particular experience in advising on complex leaseholds and unregistered titles – to Palmers’ South Woodham Ferrers team.
Caroline is widely experienced in dealing with high value private client matters and clients referred from agents both in the local area and nationwide. In her spare time, she enjoys combat sports such as Airsofting – a pellet-based variation of paintball.
Palmers Solicitors advise on all aspects of conveyancing, property sales and purchases. Our experts are also able to advise on the more complex areas of residential property law, including leasehold enfranchisement and land acquisition.
