Buying or selling a house can be a stressful experience that many people worry about. However, at Stormonth Darling we think that moving into a new house or vacating an old one should be an exciting and pain-free experience which is why we aim to ensure that your move is as smooth and efficient as possible.

Conveyancing is the term used to describe the legal process of buying or selling land or buildings.

In Scotland the first stage of a conveyancing transaction (whether a purchase or a sale) is agreeing the terms and conditions of the deal and embodying them in a formal contract called Missives. This is a very important stage in the conveyancing process in Scotland and may require a lot of communication between solicitor and client. It is important that you are aware that the contract is made in writing and usually by solicitors acting as agents for the client and without the client signing any formal document at this stage.

We can arrange your survey of the property, usually within 24 hours, and help you decide on the price to offer. Thereafter, we will submit a formal written offer to purchase on your behalf leading to the adjustment and concluding of Missives as referred to above.

As your solicitor we will examine the seller's title deeds and require him to produce clear Searches to ensure that the title is a valid one and that there is nothing to prevent the seller from granting a good title to you. We will also inform you of any unusual burdens or conditions in the title deeds that may regulate or even limit the extent to which you can use the property.

If you require a mortgage we can assist you to find the best mortgage deal for you and will prepare the mortgage deeds to provide the lender with their security.

The sale process involves the repayment of any outstanding mortgage including the preparation of a formal Discharge of the security, dealing with any enquiries from the purchaser's solicitors regarding the conditions of the title deeds, instructing all the searches and generally doing all that is necessary to provide a good and valid title to the purchaser.

Throughout both types of transaction, we shall keep in regular contact with you to ensure that you are kept informed of all actions taken on your behalf.
