Palmers has a large Residential Conveyancing department, whose solicitors and conveyancers have over one hundred years of experience between them. We provide high quality and tailor- made advice – our staff are never more than a telephone call or e-mail away.
We understand the importance of building lasting relationships with our clients and with other professionals such as independent financial advisers to ease the pressure of an often worrying and stressful event in your life – moving house!
Our professional conveyancing staff are here to offer to you practical and clear advice on the legal aspects and the often confusing procedures which need to be negotiated from the point of offer to moving house. Our conveyancers have dedicated support staff who will provide general updates on the progress of your transactions and (sometimes even more importantly) a sympathetic ear when the frustrations of moving house require it!
A combination of professional experience and use of sophisticated systems enables us to offer a speedy and economic conveyancing service.
We are on the panels of the major mortgage lenders, enabling savings to be made in the majority of purchases and re-mortgages.
Our conveyancing team offers advice on:
- Property sales and purchases
- New-build (plot) sales and purchases
Specialist residential property law issues
Our solicitors and conveyancers can also advise on the more complex areas of residential property law, including:
- Leasehold enfranchisement (advice to both Landlords and Tenants)
- Equity release schemes
- Declarations of Trust for family and other joint ownership
- Security for loans
- Land acquisition, Estate development and sales (for commercial property) please see our commercial property page
- Tenancy and licence agreements
Due to the Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) changes by HM Revenue and Customs, the property industry across the country has seen a significant increase in the number of residential property transactions. Meanwhile the ongoing effect of the Coronavirus pandemic on third parties, such as search providers, Mortgage Lenders, surveyors, removal companies and of course the conveyancers in the chain has caused delays to the completion timescales of these transactions. We kindly ask for your patience if we need to manage third party situations which are out of our immediate control. We will do our utmost to process your transaction as quickly as possible.
You will be aware that the Stamp Duty holiday comes to an end on the 31st March 2021. Whilst we will endeavour to complete all required transactions before the deadline, we cannot provide any guarantees that your transaction will complete for the deadline and your instruction of this firm is on this basis.
