Property sales and purchases
Our highly experienced, specialist residential property solicitors are ideally placed to help you with buying or selling property, offering proactive, strategic and cost-effective advice from start to finish.
We have excellent relationships with local property agents in Fulham, Chelsea and beyond, as well as with other professionals such as surveyors, brokers and managing agents of leasehold properties. We do, however, maintain our independence by never requesting or accepting referral fees.
We can help you with:
- buying a new house or apartment
- selling your property
- remortgaging your property
- buy-to-let investments
- transferring property for tax planning and probate
We will ensure the process is as smooth and stress-free as possible, outlining all the stages involved and keeping you up-to-date every step of the way. Please read our Preparing Your Home for Sale guide for more information on selling.
Leasehold houses, flats and maisonettes require particular care when issuing, selling or taking on a lease. Woodfords has particular expertise in this area, advising our wide range of clients on all aspects of leasehold properties including:
- the grant of a new lease
- lease extensions or variations
- applying for consent under your lease
- leasehold enfranchisement
- the transfer of a freehold interest
- advice on management companies
- landlord and tenant disputes
We maintain an up-to-date database with details of most leasehold properties within the area, as well as the managing agents/landlords requirements. This enables us to quickly answer any enquiries raised and move to exchange of contracts without delay.
Remortgaging, transferring or releasing equity
We know that speed is key when remortgaging a property or transferring or releasing equity. Our attention to detail and efficient case-management technology ensures that we progress your matter in a way that suits your needs as fast as possible.
As the owner of a leasehold property, there are a number of steps that can be taken to maximise the return on your investment, including lease extension or enfranchisement. We can help you assess what works best for your business.
