Why use Milwyn Jenkins & Jenkins?

To gain CQS status, we underwent a rigorous assessment by the Law Society. The CQS standard is awarded in recognition of excellent standards in residential conveyancing. For what is the most expensive purchase of anyone's lifetime, it is vital that you are able rely on a quality service, high standards in conveyancing including: the integrity of all our conveyancing staff at Milwyn Jenkins & Jenkins, adherence to good practice management standards as well as prudent and efficient procedures through the scheme protocol.

What is Conveyancing?

Conveyancing basically means the transfer of title to property – e.g. when you sell or buy your home (whether that be a freehold or leasehold title). This may or may not involve a mortgage. It could be by way of gift. Our lawyers at Milwyn Jenkins & Jenkins use a tried and tested set of procedures and forms to make this process as stress-free as possible for you, fully recognising that this will be one of the most important decisions you will ever make.

Buying by auction is quite different from a normal conveyancing transaction for the buyer and seller. For example, there is no “cooling off” period with an auction. As soon as the hammer falls on you bid, there is a commitment to buy, no matter what problems may later be found with the property. We can provide expert pre-auction advice to avoid such risks

The work will consist of the following:

(a)       investigating the title to the property, to include:

 (i)        carrying out searches with respect to title and local government information for the property;

(ii)        reviewing replies given by the seller to pre-contract enquiries, search results and title to the property;

(b)       confirming the terms of the purchase contract;

(c)        drafting a transfer deed;

(d)       advising you in respect of your mortgage offer;

(e)       preparing a report for you;

(f)        exchanging contracts and then completion of the purchase;

(g)       calculating stamp duty land tax (SDLT) on the purchase and preparing and submitting to HM Revenue & Customs the appropriate SDLT forms;

(h)       and transferring funds by telegraphic transfer to the seller’s solicitors; and

(i)         registering the purchase (and any associated mortgage) at the Land Registry.
