Solicitors are very busy between Contract and Closing.  Much of the work you will not see.  Among the matters we attend to are:

  • Preparing and negotiating the final form the transfer documentation, including the Deed, certificates and declarations, will take.
  • Corresponding with your lender including sending a professional undertaking to the lender to furnish the deeds, when they have been stamped and registered, and to certify the title as a good marketable.
  • Complying with the lender’s legal requirements to allow drawdown of funds
  • Obtaining proof of payment of property and household taxes.
  • Liaising with the seller’s solicitor and you to agree a closing date
  • Arranging for closing searches
