Buying a house

Buying a house is exciting for the purchaser. There are many things to consider – the location, the price and when you’ll move in are just some of them. We understand these things are all important to you. It is also a stressful time for you having to deal  with lots of paperwork and negotiation as well as trying to understand the conveyancing process.

We will take the time to explain every stage in the process to you, discuss the Home Report with you and talk you through the Offer process. We will deal with the technical aspects of the title  right through to registering the title to confirm  your ownership of your new home.
