"Just wanted to let you know how pleased my sister was in how your firm dealt with her recent house purchase. I'd recommended your firm to her and she told me recently how well you acted in terms of keeping them advised and updated at all times and how professional you were - she will definitely be recommending you to other people too!"

Have You Made A Will?

More than two thirds of the adult population of England and Wales have not made a Will.  If that includes you, you should consult us now.

Making a Will enables you to ensure that on your death your property and money will pass to the people whom you want to benefit.  If you die without a Will, the State effectively writes one for you, and your property may pass to a distant member of your family with whom you have never had any contact.  Even worse, if no family members can be found, your property may pass to the Government!

If you live with someone who is not your spouse or civil partner, and you do not make a Will in their favour, they will have to go through the stressful process of making a claim against your relatives in order to inherit any of your property.

If you have young children you should include in your Will details of the person(s) you would wish to be guardians of your children to ensure that the Courts would be aware of your wishes relating to the care of your children.

If you have made a Will, this should be reviewed regularly and particularly if your financial or family circumstances change.

Do I Need a Survey Report When Buying a House?

You may think this is just another expense that perhaps you could do without, but Beware!!

Here are a few reasons we always recommend the buyer obtain a Survey Report, even if their lender is carrying out a Valuation Report for mortgage purposes.
A Survey Report will reveal any extensions and/or improvements to the property which require Planning Permission/Building Regulation Approval, position of  boundaries, subsidence, structural defects, dampness, dry rot, rotting timber to name but a few.

We have contact with specialist Surveyors who will advise you which level of Report you will need and also the prices of those Reports.

If you do not need mortgage finance, a Survey Report is absolutely essential.
