Step 6 - Appointing a Solicitor

Everyone who buys a home needs a solicitor to do the necessary legal work. We will recommend a panel of experienced solicitors who specialise in Shared Ownership. You should make sure that your solicitor has experience of Shared Ownership.

Your solicitor will:

  • Check the lease and speak to your mortgage lender and our solicitors
  • Confirm there are no planned developments (such as new roads) that will affect your home;
  • Check that all the paperwork and your mortgage are in place;

Your solicitor will help you to progress to the next step, exchanging of contracts.
