The legal process relating to buying and selling a property is called conveyancing.  Having a good solicitor who is knowledgeable about local procedures can be critical to a smooth property transaction. At Aikman Bell our solicitors are highly experienced locally and provide a personalised, one-to-one service. We will assist with every aspect of finalising your contracts, including key points such as:

  •     Title deeds: Your solicitor needs to get hold of your title deeds and check them in the course of the transaction
  •     Land register: The solicitor will search the Land Register carried out to confirm there are no impediments to the sale of the property
  •     Missives: Your solicitors will draw up purchase and sale contract letters of negotiation, referred to as missives.
  •     Date of entry: Agreeing concluded “missives” with fixed date of entry which both parties are expected to work towards
  •     Paperwork: After the conclusion of “missives” the solicitor will manage the paperwork involved in the legal transfer of the property
