When you’re buying a house, it’s an exciting time. You’re investing in a home for you and your family, but it may well be the biggest transaction and financial commitment you ever make. As conveyancing solicitors in Maidstone and Gravesend, Gullands are here to help.
We understand the procedures involved can appear complicated and unnecessarily time-consuming. The team will cut through jargon, and explain every step of the way. We aim to make your life easier.
What is conveyancing?
Put simply, conveyancing is the legal transfer of property from seller to buyer. It starts with someone making an offer, and ends with the keys being handed over. Everything in between – including local authority searches and the transfer of a deposit – is handled by conveyancing solicitors.
What we can help you with
Our qualified team will do the legwork for you. We offer a complete conveyancing service for buyers and sellers. Here’s a brief breakdown of how what we do differs when you’re buying or selling a house.
