Residential Property

A residential property transaction is something that most people will experience during their life, some more frequently than others. You will often find that the growing sentiment of most parties involved in a residential transaction is one of frustration at the length of time it takes to complete the transaction and the general absence of useful and tailored advice. Real estate law may be complex, particularly to those getting their head around it for the first time, but there is never any reason for those complexities to be passed from lawyer to client.

We understand that what is important to you is having the transaction go through quickly and without a hitch, not having to immerse yourself in the legal detail. The Cripps Life team we will build for you will take the time to listen and understand your needs, so that they can handle everything in the background with as much or little input from you as needed. Our aim is always to provide you with clear, bespoke advice and move the transaction from inception to completion as seamlessly and efficiently as possible. Whether you are taking your first step onto the property ladder, moving home, or starting or growing your property portfolio, our team is here to help.

Our residential team advises on a wide range of services from acquisitions and sales to lease extensions, enfranchisements, inter-family and off-shore transfers including various types of real estate finance. We also understand that transactions often venture further afield, crossing into multiple other areas of your life. In these instances, we have experienced teams within the firm dedicated to offering other legal services including loan agreements, tax advice, co-ownership agreements and succession planning.

We understand that each transaction is unique and requires solutions and advice from an experienced team. For example, if you are looking to build your property portfolio you need to surround yourself not just with trusted property lawyers but also tax planners and financial advisers. We have extensive experience working alongside external advisers, and do so regularly on a day-to-day basis. Our priority is always engaging with them in a positive way with your wishes and best interests at heart, so you receive advice that knits together and makes sense.

Whilst we work with a number of clients on individual transactions, our aim is always to create a relationship that lasts long into the future. We take pride in the number of existing clients we regularly act for and relish the opportunity to give our clients advice they need well beyond just the initial instruction.
