We also understand the stress that can be part and parcel of buying or selling a property. Our specialists will make sure you receive information and updates only when you need them, keeping you in touch with progress and explaining what is happening as each stage is completed.

Remortgaging

Remortgaging is undertaken for a variety of reasons: switching to obtain a better deal or simply to increase the size of an existing mortgage to release funds to pay for home improvements, or other purposes.

An important aspect for many people remortgaging is that it is arranged quickly, especially if funds are required for a specific project. Our specialists will deal with the legal requirements as quickly as possible, while ensuring our first priority is always to protect your legal position.

Buy-to-Let

If you are considering purchasing property with a view to using it for buy-to-let purposes, it is vital that you take expert legal advice. When you purchase a property for renting out you are effectively starting a small business by becoming a landlord. As a result you will need to find tenants, check their references, collect rent and deal with any tenant disputes.

Tenancy and lease arrangements

We provide help and advice on all aspects of Landlord and Tenancy Law and arrangements to terminate leases. We also advise landlords on how to deal with difficult tenants and provide assistance for tenants whose landlords are acting outside the law, or ignoring their responsibilities to tenants. We can also provide assistance in resolving disputes for either party.

For all property and conveyancing related matters please contact Alison Kinnersley or another member of her team, Justine Reeves or Jean Tonna.
