Residential Property

For most people, buying or selling their home is the biggest transaction they will ever undertake. Getting it right is critical to your happiness in your new home. Working with you we can help meet your specific needs and help you to understand every step of the transaction.

We can guide, help and act for you by:

  • Explaining the processes simply and clearly so you understand what is happening throughout your transaction
  • Keeping you fully advised and informed of progress at every stage
  • Undertaking the legal work quickly and effectively to ensure you get value for money

We are experienced in all aspects of property work

Our Services

  • Purchase and Sale of Freehold and Leasehold
    We offer a fixed-fee service for residential conveyancing and pride ourselves on our high level of client care and satisfaction. Routine matters will be dealt with efficiently and any problems identified quickly so that we can work on a solution to give you peace of mind. We also have experience in acting for buyers of new build properties. We understand that these can seem particularly stressful as there is often a much stricter deadline. Our experienced team have worked for developers, housing associations and buyers of new build properties so you can rest assured that we understand the process.
  • Transfers of Equity
    A transfer of equity means adding or removing a person from the ownership record of the property. A sole owner may wish to add their spouse or a child or a separating couple may need to remove a former partner.
  • Re-mortgaging
    There are many reasons why you might wish to remortgage your home and, when you do, our team at Neale Turk Rochfort can help you through the process by providing independent and professional advice.
  • Planning and Development
    Obtaining planning consent or the necessary permissions to carry out developments on your land can be a long and confusing process. You may be considering making structural changes to your home or might even have already finished them: if so, there is a good chance that you will need planning permission.

Without planning consent it can be difficult to sell your home when you final want to move without the extra cost of obtaining planning permission retrospectively or insuring against enforcement action. So we believe it is important to work with you as soon as you start considering any changes.

We can also give advice on:

  • Right to Buy Council and Housing Association Properties
  • Shared Ownership: purchases where a buyer pays a reduced price to buy only a part of the full value of the property. A landlord or housing association usually retain the remaining share.
  • Option Agreements: conditional contracts to sell or buy a certain property usually between a private owner and a developer
  • Lease extensions
  • Declarations of Trust: Along with other types of agreements between co-owners these are designed to protect capital contributions between joint purchasers
  • Family Loan Agreements: non-commercial loans between family members aiding in the purchase of a property

 What Does It Cost?

An important question and we think you’ll like the answer.

  • Just over three years ago I decided to take the big plunge into the property market as a first time buyer. Having heard various stories about the process I was ‘slightly terrified’. However I had the great back up and help through out the process from NTR which was greatly appreciated for a first time experience. I am about to move house and will be using them again. I would highly recommend them to anyone buying and selling.

  • Keren Morgan acted for the purchaser of the sale of a property my company put together. Throughout the process Keren was efficient, proactive and above all communicated with me, always taking my calls. I would highly recommend Keren who is an asset to the conveyancing industry.
