Buying or selling a home? Either way we know a house purchase is one of the most important events of your life and our aim is to make it as simple and as easy as possible. As a buyer we will guide you through the following conveyancing process:-
• Pre-offer questions.
• The offer process.
• Tying up the contract (“concluding missives”).
• Title information including title conditions and property rights.
• Your mortgage paperwork.
• Paying the price on settlement day and ensuring you get the keys to your new house.
• Arranging for your title and mortgage to be registered in the land register and thereafter sending the relevant documents to your Lender.
Please contact us for further details on our services and fees.
There is a useful Scottish Government guide to the legal process of house buying and selling. It is a good summary but note that it does not mention “additional dwelling supplement” – second home tax. If ADS is payable, it is the buyer who pays it and is charged at 4% of the full purchase price as well as LBTT.
