Legal Services

An essential part of any real estate purchase in the UK, it is very important to have a strong legal partner that has proven track record of being able to handle the most complex of situations in the best interest of the clients. The Legal team is an integral part of any due diligence, deal and debt structuring as well as the conveyancing process.

They will carry out the legal due diligence to make sure the seller/landlord has the right to sell the property and identify whether there are any restrictions which may affect your use and enjoyment of the property.

There are three strands to this due diligence:

Investigate title:

Study the Land Registry entries for the property and review other available title documents. If you are acquiring a leasehold property they will also review the terms of the lease.

Searches:

Undertake various searches with the appropriate municipal (local) authorities, utility companies and other bodies to identify matters affecting the property. For example, planning (zoning) restrictions, the availability of sewers and services at the property, whether access roads are publicly maintained and whether there are any proposals that might affect the property. Generally these searches only disclose matters affecting the property itself and not any adjoining property or the surrounding area.

Enquiries:

Make preliminary enquiries of the seller’s lawyers, covering both title matters and more practical matters affecting the property such as the physical state of the property and whether there have been any disputes.
