We ensure good communication at all times with our clients, the legal representatives of other parties in the transaction and the Estate Agents. The usual stages of a residential purchase and sale are summarised below.

CQS has the support of the Council of Mortgage Lenders, the Building Societies Association, Legal Ombudsman and the Association of British Insurers.
Buying a Home
Establishing the chain
We first help establish that the chain of transactions is complete and will let you know how far the chain extends and make sure that all parties appear to be ready to proceed before you instruct us to undertake any work. This helps ensure that you avoid any unnecessary expense.
Preliminary Enquiries
The seller's solicitor will send us a contract which includes details of the Sellers ownership of the property (known as "title") and any other relevant documents for the property you are purchasing. We examine the contract to ensure that it agrees with your instructions and does not contain any unacceptable provisions. We check the title documents to confirm that the seller has the right to sell the property and send any enquiries to the seller's solicitor and carry out any necessary searches. We will report to you on the documentation received and discuss with you any areas of concern.
Exchange of contracts
Once we have satisfactory responses to our enquiries and searches, the contract can be approved. You will need to ensure you have obtained any necessary mortgage at this stage. Contracts can then be formally exchanged so that all the parties involved in the chain are committed to complete their transactions on an agreed date.
After exchange, we make any final searches and prepare any relevant documents for you to sign. We request the mortgage funds and let you know if we need any balance to complete the purchase. On the completion date, we transfer the purchase money to the bank of the seller's solicitor, using our own secure electronic payment terminal. After completion we deal with any stamp duty land tax requirements and register your ownership (and any mortgage) at the Land Registry before sending the deeds to your lender who retains them for the duration of the mortgage. If you have no mortgage, you may choose to store them, free of charge, in our security vault.

Selling a Home
Once a buyer has been found we prepare a contract which we send to your buyer's solicitor and deal with any subsequent enquiries and obtain your detailed instructions as necessary.
Exchange and Completion
We arrange the exchange of contracts and deal with any requisitions raised by the buyer's solicitors. we approve the transfer document, arrange to redeem any current mortgage you have and account to you for any balance due.
This is a brief summary of the work we carry out on your behalf. If you would like to know more, we would be happy to explain any of the stages in more detail.

This put our mind to rest

As mentioned before, me and Natalie are extremely grateful for the work that has been done throughout the process, with me and Natalie being first time buyers we didn't really know anything about how to buy a house, and we thank you all our questions that was answered throughout the process. This put our mind to rest as we progressed through to our completion date.

On the ball

Hi Natalie. This is just a note to say what a fantastic job you did for our conveyancing. Professional, efficient  and generally an amazing service..

An asset to their team

Hi Natalie May I take this opportunity to say a massive thank you for all your hard work and dealing with this efficiently. You're a fantastic professional and I hope Paul Robinson realise that they have an asset to their team. I know it's a small transfer of ownership but I am really impressed with the way that this has been handled and that is credit to you.

The best solicitors we have used!

Francesca, Just wanted to say, you have been absolutely brilliant, especially with the short time scale.......the best solicitors we have used!

You've been by far the best solicitor I've ever worked with!

“Thank you Samantha and again to you Natalie!!! You've been by far the best solicitor I've ever worked with!” I was impressed from start to finish and being based in the U.S. before entering into this process I was concerned it’d be difficult keeping up to date with proceedings with the added pressure of dealing with a government 2nd charge on the property. Natalie you were excellent and on the ball from day one, kept me in the loop for each and every stage, helped ease the time zone and communication challenges and was hugely important for the sale of this property going smoothly and keeping us calm! I cannot thank you enough, a true professional who made this experience seamless. Thank you Natalie!!!!!
Testimonial from Rikki Wood

Easy Move

I have recommended you to anyone that will listen. You are making a fairly stressful procedure a lot easier, it is greatly appreciated. I know I am paying for it at the end of the day, but the levels of service I receive from yourself and your team are always excellent.
