According to the UK House Price Index, 15,536 existing properties and 840 new builds were bought in these boroughs over the past year. In all boroughs, detached properties increased the most in price, rising by as much as 14.8%.

    Instructing your conveyancer as soon as your offer is agreed upon will ensure that your process is more efficient. Here is what to expect from the conveyancing process:

    • Liaising with mortgage lenders
    • Checking through the contracts and raising any enquiries
    • Arranging the exchange of contract
    • Paying disbursements such as Stamp Duty
