Welcome to The Law Superstore legal guide
When buying or selling property, you'll rely on your solicitor to handle important documentation and financial transactions.
One of the first things your solicitor or licensed conveyancer will do after you’ve had an offer accepted on a house is organise all the relevant property searches, or conveyancing searches.
When purchasing a house or flat in England or Wales, you may need to pay Stamp Duty Land Tax to the government.
Before committing to buying a property, it’s strongly recommended that you arrange a house survey. If you’re unsure what this involves and don’t know which type is right for you, read our house survey guide.
