The legal process when selling your home can be both time-consuming and costly.

The longer a sale takes to progress, the greater the risk that a sale could fall through due to someone in your property’s chain experiencing a change in circumstances.

With this is mind, David James encourage all their sellers to be Legally Prepared. The idea is to complete much of the legal work when you first market your home and before you have found a buyer; with the idea of eliminating many of the pitfalls in the conveyancing process before they arise and avoiding lengthy delays in the progress of a later sale. Under our Legally Prepared scheme, we get you on board with one of our panel of solicitors when we bring your property to the market, allowing the conveyancer time to send out their initial paperwork in advance and allowing you time to complete this and return it without losing valuable time once your sale has been agreed.

Not only will this legal work be carried out in advance, this service is NO SALE, NO LEGAL FEE and you can rest assured that the conveyancers operate on a fixed legal fee guarantee, so the price quoted to you at the outset is the price you will pay irrespective of the complexity of the transaction.

We work closely with our conveyancing partners to ensure a smooth transition through the sales process. Given the strength of our relationship, we can rely upon them for regular updates or demand for a matter to be progressed more quickly if necessary; something that can prove difficult with other conveyancers with whom we do not have this relationship.
