All aspects of residential conveyancing are covered
Why use us? – Moving home is undoubtedly a stressful time for everyone. Our clients tell us that they prefer dealing with one person from start to finish rather than a team of people. So when you instruct us you will be told who will be acting for you and it is that person you will be speaking with throughout the transaction. This means that they will be fully conversant with the transaction and will be able to update you as and when needed. We will ensure that all paperwork is taken care of for you, so you can concentrate on making preparations and enjoying your new home. We offer a prompt and efficient service from our specialist lawyers, so whatever your residential conveyancing needs, you are in safe hands. See our Testimonials for our some of our clients comments.

The law surrounding the process of buying and selling property is complicated. It is vital that the buyer is aware of all the issues with the property before the purchase is complete, as the seller has no duty to disclose information regarding the property. It is the role of a conveyancer to investigate the title and conduct searches on the property you are buying. Once the purchase is completed, the buyer has little legal recourse against the seller for any problems they may encounter and this is where it pays to have experts dealing with these matters for you.

Legal help and a quick service for your remortgage
If you already have a mortgage then it is always worth looking at the remortgages available, to see if money can be saved with a better rate. Many homeowners use remortgaging as a way of cashing in on the equity growth on their properties, by increasing the amount they borrow.

Before making the decision to remortgage, you should check your existing mortgage’s terms and conditions. Some mortgages, particularly those with discounted, capped or fixed rates of interest carry redemption penalties which can add up to thousands of pounds, while most will have some form of administration fee to pay if you switch to another lender. Make sure you do your sums to ensure the savings of remortgaging outweigh the costs of changing lender.

Expert, cost effective remortgage conveyancing services
Hopkins Law remortgage conveyancing team provide highly efficient, fast and competitively priced remortgage advice and service. Our team of specialist lawyers are experienced, friendly and provide the highest levels of service.

The legal process of remortgaging is relatively straightforward, though speed and accuracy are key to making the process run smooth. Legal checks such as bankruptcy searches, land registration and title checks, all have to be completed correctly and on time to meet the proposed lender’s requirements. With years of experience providing legal expertise to the residential property market, you can rest assured you are in the safest of hands with Hopkins Law.

A J Testimonial

We chose to use Hopkins Law for our property transaction as a bit of an unknown, we had been referred their details without knowing a huge amount about them but we are so pleased we instructed them! Clare & Katherine from the Chepstow office were incredibly efficient, professional and helpful. They were able to talk us through our many queries and the occasional concern – we were able to build a great rapport and work together as a team to ensure everything went smoothly. Being huge believers that communication is key to achieving anything in life we were very anxious that our solicitors may take ages to respond to us, however Hopkins Law communicated with us fantastically through the sale and purchase and this took a massive amount of stress off our shoulders. We’ll be continuing to use Hopkins Law for all of our future legal matters as a result of this initial interaction and we would not hold back in recommending them to anyone.
