What does my solicitor do?
Your solicitor performs a vital and invaluable role in the process – they are there to guide and advise you on the legal aspects of the purchase.
If you are not buying a property outright, it means that you are entering into a Lease Agreement with the relevant housing association or developer and your solicitor will check the terms of the lease and the title of the property to ensure that there are no areas that would compromise your ownership and enjoyment of your home.
Your solicitor also undertakes work on behalf of your mortgage company, reporting to them from a legal perspective that the property represents good security for the money they are lending you.
It is essential for the smooth passage of your purchase that the firm that represents you is customer focused, highly competent and also knowledgeable in the Property Sector. For that reason we have a panel of firms that we recommend our clients to use.
These firms have a proven track record and have entered into a service agreement with Censeo Limited, ensuring that you and the appropriate housing association/developer receive consistent levels of communication and that their work is completed promptly and accurately.
