Pick which office you wish to use:



Pre-contract stage

  • Firstly you must instruct us to begin work. You should do this as soon as a buyer is found to avoid delay. Details about the sale will be obtained from you and you will also need to supply the original forms of identity to meet with the strict money laundering requirements. You will also need to complete various forms which provide basic details about the property being sold. If there is a mortgage on the property you will also be asked to supply your mortgage account details.
  • Your estate agent will forward us details of your buyer’s legal representative. If you don’t have an estate agent you must supply us with the contact details of your buyer and which firm of solicitors are representing them.
  • We will check your title deeds and prepare draft contracts. The contract will state the land being sold and on what terms you are prepared to sell. These documents will be sent to your buyer’s solicitor for consideration and approval.
  • Your buyer’s solicitor will raise enquires in relation to your property, which must be answered to their satisfaction.
  • The contract will then be forwarded to you for signing in readiness of ‘exchange’.

Post contract – pre-completion stage

  • Only when the seller and buyer are ready to commit to the transaction will contracts be exchanged. These confirm what the parties must do and mark the stage at which the contract becomes legally binding. This ensures that neither party can withdraw without incurring penalties.
  • The transfer deed will be forwarded to you once received from the buyer’s solicitor. The contract states what the parties must do, and the transfer deed carries it out.

Post completion stage

  • Completion occurs when all the terms of the contract have been satisfied. The money is received from the buyer’s solicitor and any existing mortgage/secured loan is repaid.
  • You must leave the property on or before the day of completion and ensure that it is cleared of all personal possessions other than those included in the sale.
  • The keys to the property must be handed to the buyer directly or through the estate agent once instructed to do so.
  • The transfer deed is dated and forwarded to the buyer’s solicitor with the deeds enabling the ownership of the dwelling to change hands.

Would just like to mention your Bridlington branch is so highly recommended. We have had the most efficient & fast legal work done by one of your brilliant Solicitors called Lauren. Can I add no stress what's so ever. Thankyou Williamsons Solicitors & thankyou Lauren.

Have used this firm for both buying and selling properties and would use them again. They've always been fair and reasonable in what they charged and done their best to keep me informed on developments in above transactions.

Carey has been really good throughout the process. Always responds quickly on emails and is always on the end of the phone if I needed her. I would highly recommend this firm and Carey.

Mrs Kathleen A

Excellent relationship management, clear and concise advice including option analysis. Very happy with all aspects of the service provided and the outcomes achieved. Friendly professional service.

Mr & M

Carey Robinson acted as our Solicitor on a recent commercial purchase and she was brilliant. Carey was super efficient and we were kept up to date on every aspect of the purchase. From start to finish our "Property Auction" purchase only took 7 working days to complete. We will definitely be using Carey again and can highly recommend her 5 star service.

I have nothing but praise for Gordon Sewell at the Hull office. He conducted my unusual and difficult civil case with great care and understanding. Gordon also injected the right amount of sympathy for my plight without being unprofessional. I would recommend him to anyone needing a clued up civil litigation lawyer.

Richard K

very helpful and efficient. thanks to all

Peter R

Mr Nick Gray was assigned my enquiry and worked with me throughout. He made himself available at all times and was always supportive to me on numerous occasions when I found myself unsure and admittedly nervous. He never let me down. I believe his advice was always good and I relied on it throughout. I think the award was the best I could have obtained and in conclusion I can honestly say that I am happy. The other contact I have had over the years was your receptionist, the face of your company. I was always greeted with a smile and the offer of a cup of coffee. On the occasions I visited your Hull office I was always made to feel important. Thank you.
