We're here to help every step of the way.

Buying a property is one of the biggest investments of your life, our estate agents can help you at every stage of your property purchase. It is a legal requirement to have an EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) carried out on your property before its marketed.
If you’re selling a property as well as buying, speak to us about your EPC needs. The experienced and qualified solicitors we recommend can help with the conveyancing for any sale or purchase.

  • Mortgage arrangement fee
  • Mortgage indemnity fee
  • Lender's valuation fee
  • Conveyancing
  • Land Registry fee

  • Stamp duty land tax
  • Removals (unwanted things on the property)
  • Contingency fund (there are always unexpected costs along the way)

  • How far are the local parks?
  • Where are the closest shops?
