New Build Conveyancing Fees

Please call us to discuss your new build sale or purchase. Our fees will be very much be dependent on the site, whether it is a leasehold or freehold and if we are one of their panelled solicitors. This will not only effect the price but also the our ability to achieve the typical 6 weeks to exchange deadline many developers like to aim for.

Have you thought about Declaration of Ownership?

A Declaration of Ownership (also known as a “Declaration of Trust”) is a legal document commonly used to set out the interests of individual parties where an asset is held in joint names with others. When a couple, for example, purchase their home, they may decide to put in place a Declaration of Ownership to set out their property interests. They could, for instance, decide that the property should be held equally or specify unequal proportions.

There are a number of benefits to putting in place a Declaration of Ownership. It not only clarifies the way in which the property is to be owned but also confirms the responsibilities of each of the co-owners, thereby avoiding complications from arising in the future.

Cohabitation Agreement or Living Agreement

A Cohabitation Agreement records the arrangements between two or more people who have agreed to live together. It records each parties’ rights and responsibilities in relation to the property, financial arrangements during the relationship and any arrangements to be made if they decide that they no longer want to live together.
