Residential Property

Buying or selling a property is always an important decision – but it needn’t be a stressful one.

Napthens’ property specialists make things easier for you by giving you the support and plain-English advice you need – in the way you want it. You can talk to us face-to-face, by phone or online, whichever you prefer.

Our industry-leading, user friendly online system gives you instant access to your case so you can easily log in and keep an eye on progress. And that’s backed by our rapid response policy ensuring that when you have a question, it’s answered fast.

It doesn’t replace our face-to-face service though, it supports it – we still love to talk to our clients. Just pop in or call us and find out for yourself. From our experienced and friendly team you’ll be assigned a dedicated conveyancer who will deal with all your needs from start to finish.

We were delighted when our residential property team won the 2018 LFS Regional Conveyancing Firm of the Year Award.  This is the third time Napthens has won this prestigious award (previous winners in 2017 and 2014).  In 2017 the judges commented:  The firm is extremely staff and client focused and this showed in the application and Shopper Anonymous client feedback scores. Great IT department, constantly keeping up to date with the changing times. This firm is adaptable and ready for the challenges and changing times to come.”  

Who will deal with your matter?

Your matter will be dealt with by a specific conveyancer within the department, and this will be one of the property specialists.  We have over 20 specialist conveyancers in Residential Conveyancing whose individual names appear below.  By clicking on their biography, you can see their experience and information.  They will deal with your transaction from the time your file is opened, until completion takes place.

Timescales

Every transaction is slightly different, depending upon a number of factors, such as the length of the chain, other parties’ circumstances and the time taken to obtain mortgage offers, search results and surveys.  On a freehold transaction, we would anticipate exchange of contracts to take on average, 10-12 weeks from the receipt of or issue of, the contract papers.  If the property is leasehold, this may take slightly longer, as we may need the cooperation of landlords and management companies.

Factors which could increase or decrease our overall costs estimate

  • If a lease extension or a deed of variation is required to your lease, in order for your matter to proceed, but was not initially anticipated
  • If you are purchasing a property and your mortgage lender wishes to instruct separate solicitors to act on their behalf
  • If a title defect is revealed during the transaction and needs to be remedied by way of drafting further documentation, such as a deed for a right of way
