Buying a Property

Buying a property is a significant step in anyone’s life, and can be a very daunting prospect.

Birkett Long will act for you in the conveyancing process, and will help take the pressure away when it comes to the legal work involved. ‘Conveyancing’ is the process which leads to the legal transfer of the property from the seller to the buyer.

At Birkett Long, we have a dedicated team of residential property specialists committed to providing you with the practical advice you need, in order for you to properly understand the process and make informed decisions about your transaction.

There are many things to think about when buying a house;

  • Where do you want to buy?
  • What type of property are you looking for - a house, or flat?
  • What can you afford?
  • Do you require mortgage finance?
  • Have you considered ongoing costs such as council tax, utility bills, service charges or ground rent payments and other general property expenses?

Our fees are simple and clear - a full quote will be provided, with no hidden costs arising later.

What our clients say

  • First time using Birkett Long and I was very impressed. They have broken the old fashioned solicitors image by making themselves available and responding quickly to email, very efficient overall.
  • I have placed four property transactions, two sales, two purchases, with Birkett Long over the last two years and have been highly impressed with the professional and painless way they have conducted each.
  • I have used Birkett Long for matrimonial and family business, property matters and wills and probate and have received good service in all three departments. They are good at providing fee estimates to clients in advance and sticking to them, offering budget-friendly payment arrangements and using email rather than slow and costly printed letters.
