Can’t speak highly enough about the staff efficiency- friendliness- and how professional they are. Would absolutely recommend to others.
Numerous polls have ranked moving home as one of the most stressful things you can do in your life. Not surprising really as our homes are so important to us, there’s so much change and so many things going on at once and for most it is one of the largest financial transactions of their life.
Choosing the right solicitor is crucial. We’re trusted by thousands of home movers every year. We understand that every move is different and that you need a service that is tailored to your individual circumstances.
Your case will be handled by a small highly skilled team headed by one of our very experienced conveyancers (each head has 20 years’ experience at least).
Aside from our expert conveyancing experience, we offer a whole host of other benefits for house movers including:
Quick, Secure and Easy Sign Up, ID and Property Forms: If you would like (it’s your choice), you can sign up, go through the required identity checks and do all the necessary forms using our secure online portal. Depending on your preference (we totally understand lots of people still prefer paper) this can be easier, quicker and more straightforward.
You’re kept in the loop: Whenever you are dealing with other people (e.g your buyer, lenders, others in the chain if there is one) things are rarely seamless and go exactly as you want them to because some compromises must be made (take agreeing a completion date for example).
We do what we can to make things as straightforward as possible, keep the process on track, give you as clear timescales as possible and work hard to eliminate all foreseeable delays before they happen. If there is a delay we’ll tell you about it so you know where you are, you’re not chasing us and you don’t have to put your life on hold.
You are dealing with people like you: Our people are friendly, down to earth and approachable who recognise that everyone is an individual and do their very best to help you get what you want.
You’ll get a fair deal and you have the option of choosing No Completion, No Fee: Our fees are very competitive and are completely transparent.
Beware of hidden fees! With our Clear Price Guarantee, what you see is our all-inclusive service fee. For complete peace of mind, we’d be pleased to compare a competitor’s quote at no cost so you’re comparing like with like and don’t get any nasty surprises later down the line when you no longer have a choice.
You can’t say fairer than that.
I was recommended Locking’s from my mother and I was not disappointed. They kept regular contact throughout my whole purchase, they were kind and answered every query quickly. Adele was a pleasure to work alongside and made the process of buying my first home very stress-free and easy. Couldn’t recommend Adele and the team enough. Will definitely be working with them again in the future. Thank you!
When Moving Home conveyancing means the legal side of things and the practical arrangements that go with that.
So on your sale its making sure everything the buyer’s solicitor will need to see is sent to them, on a purchase its checking out everything that is sent by the seller’s solicitor and asking the right questions so you know what your buying and your lender will lend on it and when you’re doing both at the same time coordinating the two things to make sure you move on a date this is acceptable to you.
It depends on so many factors that our advice is to think in terms of about 8-12 weeks from when the sale is agreed but realise things could be a bit quicker but could also take longer (and sometimes a lot longer). The length of the property “chain”, the types of property involved (newbuilds and flats usually take longer) and the circumstances, position and wishes of everybody in the chain and their searches, surveys and mortgage applications are some of the main factors but there are others too.
A good moving home solicitor will ensure that your home move is legally sound by dealing with all the necessary checks and paperwork and the practical arrangements so everybody involved can move at a time that is acceptable to them. With lots of things going on at once the best home moving solicitors not only keep on top of all this but keep you in the loop throughout the process so you always know where you are.
Moving home is a big deal and getting the right legal support can make all the difference to how it goes. Make sure you’re happy that you’re going to get good communication, clear pricing and a solicitor who specialises in conveyancing. Also check out those all-important reviews.
Often there can be pressure to pick a solicitor quickly particularly if the sale has just been agreed but just a few minutes research can save you a lot of heartache (and cost) further down the line.
