With over 45 years of experience in property and conveyancing, we provide an excellent conveyancing service at a competitive price.

As a buyer trying to purchase a property or a landlord attempting to prepare a lease agreement, you will find that the laws concerning property and conveyancing can be challenging to comprehend. Ensuring that you are adhering to the law and ticking every legal requirement can take the excitement away from special experiences, such as moving into a new house.

Employing the services of our dedicated property and conveyancing solicitors means that we will handle all of your property matters, saving you time down the line. By drawing on our years of experience in property law, we will work tirelessly to help you without making any compromises on quality.

The property matters that we can assist with:

Buying and selling properties

Buying a property, especially if it is your first one, is an exciting but not entirely stress-free experience. For those wishing to sell a property, the experience can be equally as daunting. At Foys, our conveyancing solicitors help to liaise with the other party’s solicitors, initiate a string of searches, examine your mortgage offer, set a date for completion, facilitate an exchange of contracts, supervise the transfer of funds, finalise the stamp duty payment to HMRC and register the title at the Land Registry, to name but a few. Our property and conveyancing team also deals with New Builds, the Government HTB scheme and Freehold and Leasehold properties and can check Lease requirements. We work closely with you, explaining every step of the process without legal jargon, allowing you to fully understand what exactly is going on.

Renting and letting properties, including buy-to-let

Becoming a landlord will see you obtaining a number of certifications and meeting regulations, as well as managing lease agreements and tenants – so let us work with you to ensure that you comply with the law and that your tenancy and lease agreements protect your investment. With years of experience in helping landlords in South Yorkshire, North Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, you can rest assured that Foys’ expert solicitors will safeguard your rights as a landlord.

Declaration of Trust (Deed of Trust)

When buying a property with another person as joint owners, or buying one with the help of someone else, a Declaration of Trust, or Deed of Trust, is useful as it stipulates who is entitled to receive what or a specific share held in the property. At Foys, our property solicitors can advise you on how to protect yourself and your investment with an appropriate Declaration of Trust.

Buying a council house (Right to Buy)

The Right to Buy scheme is a policy in the UK which allows the tenants of councils and some housing associates the legal right to buy the council house in which they live in, at a discounted rate. The council will first determine whether or not you are eligible for the Right to Buy scheme before helping you to apply for the scheme. Once that has been dealt with, our team will step in to assist with the transaction.

What does conveyancing involve?

Conveyancing is the transferring of a legal title of real property from one person to another. Our specialist, conveyancing solicitors will represent you throughout the process, ensuring that you receive a secure title to the property.

Our professional solicitors will assist you with:

  • Drafting the contract, which describes the terms and conditions of the sale agreed upon by both the buyer and the seller.
  • Exchanging contracts when both parties are satisfied with all the terms of the contract before committing to a transaction. The exchange will set a date for the legal completion of a transaction.
  • Handling completion day – the most critical day of any property transaction, which involves overseeing the transfer of funds to pay the balance of the purchase price and the releasing of keys.

Throughout the process of a transaction, your conveyancing solicitor will serve as your legal representative, negotiating on your behalf, guiding you through every step while continually updating you on the progress.
