Frequently Asked Questions
We can help every step of the way.
When you find a property you’re interested in, the next step is to request a copy of the Home Report from the estate agent. This provides important details about the property, including its energy efficiency and running costs.
We can talk you through the information provided in the Home Report and advise on its implications for you. Once you’re happy, we can note interest with the selling agents on your behalf; this means the seller won’t sell the property without first advising you of any other potential buyers and allowing you to make an offer.
We will discuss the terms of the Qualified Acceptance with you in detail and determine if there are any amendments to be made before sending the updated terms back to the seller’s solicitor. The offer/acceptance process can take some time and involve a lot of communication between our team, you and the seller’s legal team.
This is necessary to ensure the contract reflects exactly what has been agreed between you and the seller. Once the agreement has been reached on every point and the final version of the agreement is signed, the missives are concluded.
Once these missives are signed by us on your behalf, a binding legal agreement will be created, and you must go through with the sale. It’s important to note that if either party wishes to withdraw from the sale after the contract has been signed, the other party may be able to claim compensation for any loss incurred.
When we receive the acceptance from the seller’s solicitors, we will also receive the title deeds, along with the various reports and searches. These form an integral part of the Conveyancing process. Our role is to check the documentation thoroughly and ensure the property is free from any problems.
This is usually a quiet period in the process. Don’t worry if you don’t hear from us as frequently during this time, it’s the nature of the Conveyancing stage, and we’re busy making sure everything is in order.
If anything unusual comes up during our checks, we’ll be in touch. We’ll also contact the seller’s solicitor on your behalf to find out more and, where necessary, work out a solution.
On the date of completion, we will forward the settlement price to the seller’s solicitors, and in exchange, you’ll receive the keys to your new home. Our team will do everything we can to complete on time. Please note circumstances, complexities and timescales vary because each case is unique. We will do our best to keep you updated throughout.
Helping you move with confidence
My wife and I couldn’t be happier with the service we received from Scullion LAW in the purchase of our new home during a very competitive period in the property market. Polite, friendly, fuss-free efficiency; a personal touch of genuine sympathy and encouragement when one of our bids failed and genuinely pleased for us when we were successful. Stacey Hamilton and Gemma Miller were particularly great with us. Highly recommended.
Gemma and all Scullion LAW staff that we had contact with were very professional at all times during our house purchase. We appreciated their constant communication and updates during the purchase process. We would highly recommend this Solicitors.
Our 2nd conveyancing transaction using Scullion LAW & all very stress / hassle free. Nothing is an issue to this team, they just get on with it & let you know the bits you need to. Farrah had a short break just as things started moving on, Stuart seamlessly took over for a few days to keep things bubbling away. No hesitation to recommend for any type of legal assistance at all.
