WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY

Residential Property Conveyancing Experts Eccles Heddon Solicitors Yorkshire & Cumbria

Conveyencing made easy!

We recently used Sarah at Eccles Heddon to sell a property and purchase our new house. Sarah was responsive, polite and detail orientated - straight away we knew she was acting in our interests to progress everything as quickly as possible. Communications were clear and detailed the steps we needed to take at each stage of the process. Sarah was always there to answer any queries and was very prompt with her communications. We have no hesitation in recommending Sarah & Eccles Heddon for conveyancing.

Excellent conveyancing service

This is the second time we have engaged Carole Wood for conveyancing work. Professional, experienced, very efficient and always available for clients. The purchase was not straightforward and occurred at a very busy time for the housing market; Carole's expertise guided us through to completion. We would highly recommend Eccles Heddon from our experience and would certainly instruct the firm to act for us again.

OUR SERVICES EXPLAINED

Buying Property

Eccles Heddon provides residential conveyancing services to a number of differing clients, from private individuals (be it in the acquisition of a family home or buy to let property), to business owners, property developers and builders. We have both the experience and knowledge to assist you with your transaction and have worked hard over the decades to obtain an excellent reputation in the services we provide. We also enjoy strong working relationships with many local professionals, including estate agents, accountants and independent financial advisors. Whether it is a newly built home to a 17th century farmhouse, a city centre apartment to coach house, we have come across all forms of property, be it freehold or leasehold and will be familiar with their nuances. We enjoy local knowledge of the area and approach every transaction with a positive, proactive, and pragmatic attitude. You will have a designated lawyer to guide you through the transaction and you will receive a tailored and efficient service. You will be able to speak to and contact Eccles Heddon for regular updates and answer any queries you may have. In a typical purchase, we would normally do the following work as standard: - We will advise you of any SDLT (Stamp Duty) liabilities associated with your proposed purchase from the outset. Review the initial contract papers received from the Seller’s Solicitor. This would include amending the sale agreement, a comprehensive review of the property’s title and review of any other forms and documents that may have been disclosed. Once a plan of the property is to hand, we will submit any required searches on the property (for instance, a Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Enquiries and Environmental Search). We will provide a comprehensive report to you on the initial documentation that has been disclosed. Where appropriate, we will raise additional enquiries with the seller’s solicitor, keeping you informed of the responses that are subsequently received. Prepare the necessary SDLT Forms and Transfer Deeds. Attend to the necessary exchange of contracts and the subsequent completion. Again, we have both the experience and knowledge to assist you with your transaction and have worked hard over the decades to obtain an excellent reputation in the services we provide. Contact a member of our team today to see how we can help.

Selling Property

Selling property is often perceived as a stressful and daunting process. Instructing Eccles Heddon to act on your behalf (even before a buyer is found) will help ensure this is not the case and that you enjoy a smooth transaction. We have both the experience and knowledge to assist you with your sale and have worked hard over the decades to obtain an excellent reputation in the services we provide. We also enjoy strong working relationships with many local estate agents ensuring good communication throughout the process. You will have a designated lawyer to guide you through the transaction and you will receive a tailored and efficient service. You will be able to speak to and contact Eccles Heddon for regular updates and answer any queries you may have. In a typical sale, we would normally do the following work as standard: - Prepare the initial contract papers. This includes working with you to understand the extent of the property being sold, a review of the property title and advising you on how to complete any necessary questionnaires. Once a buyer has been found, we will send the contract papers over to the buyer’s solicitor. Request a redemption statement from your lender. Attend to any additional enquiries raised by the Buyer’s Solicitor, taking your further instruction on specific matters where appropriate. Attend to the exchange of contracts and the subsequent completion. Again, we have both the experience and knowledge to assist you with your transaction and have worked hard over the decades to obtain an excellent reputation in the services we provide.

Selling Property

Deeds of Gift

A deed of gift of property is a legal way of documenting a transfer of legal or equitable interest in an asset, such as a property. It is often used to transfer ownership from a parent to child. Once you have taken advice from our Private Client Team and your accountant, we can ensure that any gift is documented by deed and is legally binding.

Deeds of Gift

Transfers of Equity

A Transfer of equity is the legal process of removing or adding someone to the ownership of a property. This will typically be required where you wish to add a new partner or family member to the title or wish to remove someone from the ownership, owing to a divorce. It may also be required where the shares of ownership are changed. There are many potential pitfalls with a transfer of equity (including Stamp Duty) and it is important to seek the advice of a professional. Contact a member of our team today to see how we can help.

Transfers of Equity

Registration of Land

It is common to see land / property that has been held by a family for generations. With no recent dealings in the land, the legal title may not be ‘registered’ at the Land Registry. By way of background, the Land Registry holds an online register documenting what land is held in whose name up and down the country. Where land is registered, each parcel of land is given its own unique title number. That title will describe the property, show an outline of the boundaries on an up-to-date Ordnance Survey plan, confirm who owns the land (including the full name and address of each legal owner) and where appropriate, detail what rights and encumbrances the land has the benefit of or remains subject to. Where land remains unregistered, there is a gap in the Land Registry’s records and unless you own the land in question and have retained your title deeds, it can be very difficult indeed to establish the boundaries of a title and who the current owner is. There are other advantages too, including helping ensure a property can be sold without title complication, to helping combat a squatters claim of ownership via adverse possession. Telephone a member of our Property Team today and see how we can help.

Registration of Land
Mortgages / Re-finance

Mortgages/Re-finance

We are on the panels of many banks and act regularly in the refinance of property, whether it is on behalf of the bank or borrower. We know how lenders operate, how best to communicate with them and most importantly, what issues are critical to them. There might be fundamental issues with a property (such a flying freehold) that we know is unacceptable to a particular bank, and we can pick up on such points with you from the outset before incurring substantial cost. There are differences between each bank's lending criteria and individual requirements need to be read and understood by your solicitor from the outset (for instance, are property searches required and will this have a bearing on any intended completion date you have in mind). We have dealt with the individual refinance of individual homes to large property portfolios. Telephone a member of our Property Team today and see how we can help.
