Buying & Selling Your Home – Conveyancing
Buying and selling your home is considered to be the most important financial and possibly the most stressful transaction that most of us undertake. At Blanchards Bailey our conveyancing solicitors fully understand this.
The aim of our Conveyancing Solicitors
Our professional and knowledgeable conveyancing solicitors are committed to ensuring that your move is completed as quickly and painlessly as possible. By explaining the ‘legal jargon’ to you at the outset and keeping in touch with you throughout the conveyancing process.
We appreciate that it is crucial to keep in touch with not only you as our clients but also all other parties involved in conveyancing process. With our continued investment in technology and case management system, we can communicate quickly and effectively throughout the transaction. We are also very happy to see you in person to discuss any aspect of the transaction.
Our Conveyancing Specialists
Our Buying and Selling Your Home team comprises only of highly experienced legal and conveyancing professionals who deal with a full variety of property matters. Attention to detail and knowledge of the local area are essential and help avoid problems in the future.
We are also able to advise on matters relating to property transactions such as co-habitation agreements, tax issues and holding property in trust.
We will always give you a full breakdown of the legal costs and expenses involved in your sale and purchase and would encourage you to look carefully at any others you may have been given and the extras that you may find thereon. We offer value for money with no hidden extras, for example, our quotes include acting for the mortgage lender and we do not charge extra fees for Stamp Duty. We also offer a free document storage facility.
More and more often we are finding that multi-national estate agents are persuading prospective sellers to use their “recommended solicitors” to act. Many of these agents are financially linked to these large conveyancing firms, who operate on a mass production level thus offering minimum personal contact without local knowledge. Never sign your agent’s Terms of Business until you have spoken to us: it is your choice who acts for you. Our housing solicitors will look after your best interests as we do not have vested interests with estate agents or insurance companies.
Energy Performance Certificates
We are able to offer the Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) at a very competitive rate. Please call us to arrange this for you.

Protection against fees if a sale or purchase does not complete
The majority of sales/purchases that our clients are involved in are completed smoothly, however for various reasons sometimes sales/purchases can fall through.
To protect our clients from paying our fees when their sale/purchase does not complete we offer an abortive costs protection scheme.
By paying an additional non-refundable sum of £50 plus VAT for a sale and £50 plus VAT for a purchase in addition to the fees on our estimate (you can chose either transaction or both), we GUARANTEE not to charge anything for our time if the matter does not proceed in the following circumstances:-
- Your buyer/seller decides to withdraw
- Your buyer/seller loses his related sale/purchase and has to withdraw
- Your buyer/seller withdraws for any other reason apart from unreasonable delay or unreasonable conduct on your part
