  • Moving home can be exciting for you, but it can also be stressful, confusing and complicated. This is something that our team of property solicitors in Beverley, Lincoln, Alford, Horncastle,  Grimsby and Louth are well aware of. This is why our whole process has been organised and simplified to give you one thing less to worry about.

    Our step-by-step approach makes any legal requirement and red tape of mortgage procedures far easier to follow and understand. Whilst our expert conveyancing solicitors apply their knowledge and allocate the best advice, our Client Connect service allows you to track your case online at all times, making the entire process flow from start to finish.

    Selling Your Property

    Once a buyer has been found, your solicitor will prepare a contract to go to your buyer, which will include a property information form. 

    If you are engaging your solicitor to undertake your sale and purchase, then once you have found a property to buy and made an offer, you will need to contact your solicitor who will obtain the contract from the seller’s solicitor and effect searches if necessary. 

    First-Time Buyers

    If you are a first time buyer, then before viewing properties, it is advisable to visit your bank or financial advisor to obtain a mortgage certificate to find out how much you can borrow. Once you have found a property to buy, contact our property solicitors and we will guide you through the legal process. 

    The Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme

    We are members of the Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS), which provides a recognised quality standard for residential conveyancing practices. Since inception in 2011, the CQS has created a trusted community which has helped year on year to deter fraud and continually improve standards across the residential conveyancing sector.

    The buying and selling of a home is usually the largest transaction that most people undertake in their lives. By being a member of CQS, you can be assured that our moving home team has the necessary skills and expertise to provide residential conveyancing advice, and will provide all the information you need to understand the process, optins, costs and timescales.

    I can't comment highly enough on the service received from Rupert and all of the team at the Alford office. This was a long drawn out sale and purchase with many complications that at times left us all tearing our hair out with frustration and I don't think I would have got my house without Rupert and the teams determination and hard work. A big thank you to them all.

    Sheila Biskup was supportive, caring and professional and kept me sane throughout the selling process of my property. She was a steady rock in a river full of turbulence over the past few months and I'll be forever grateful for the calm, steady and competent way in which she dealt with me and my sale.

    Sheila has dealt with all my legal affairs since Summer 2010 and I will be returning to request her help again in the future.

    It is not often that I have reason be express my gratitude but, despite the fact that most of our communication has been at a distance, I would like to thank you most sincerely for your patience and assistance during this whole process.

    We were a bit apprehensive in engaging with the British Legal System when we first arrived in this country as we were led to believe that buying a property would indeed be to travel on a long and torturous journey but I am glad to say that, apart from a couple of small hiccups along the way (caused, I must add, by third parties), our journey has proven to be quite a pleasant and uneventful one.

    Again, thank you for your most professional and continued support and I will be happy to recommend your services to other deserving clients.

    I feel I never really thanked you for your excellent support for our conveyancing. I found you very professional, your promptness and availability both in email replies and on the phone was exemplary and unexpected.
