Buying & Selling Houses

Whether you’re moving home, selling up to move abroad, buying your first home or a holiday home or selling an investment property, one thing it’s not going to be is stressful, providing that is you engage the help of the experts at Pickering & Butters.

We’ll take care of absolutely everything on your behalf, working proactively all the way through and keeping you up to date on all the major steps. From preparing contracts and carrying out searches to paying off your mortgage and settling your estate agent’s bill, everything is covered leaving you free to focus on the rest of your to-do list, which we know is going to be vast.

With Pickering & Butters, you can always rest assured of a hands-on service that works to protect you. The benefit of using us is that everything is dealt with by specialist solicitors with the experience and insight to know what to be on the lookout for. For example, we’ll examine all search reports and contracts meticulously, raising questions where necessary and making you aware of anything that could affect your transaction or future enjoyment of your property.

Buying or selling in a chain? We are with you on the fact that life would be far simpler if there was only one buyer and one seller. Unfortunately, there are often several in a chain and one buyer may be ready to exchange contracts much sooner than the others.

This can be quite frustrating since all the buyers and sellers in the chain have to be ready to exchange contracts on the same day and complete on a later agreed date. However, with Pickering & Butters’ experts on your side and their wealth of experience, you can rest assured we'll make sure things run as smoothly as possible.
