Solicitors

Solicitors

With any property purchase a solicitor/conveyancer is required to take care of the necessary legal work on behalf of yourself and possible mortgage lender.

At Chequers, over our 27 years in business we have established good relationships with local solicitors who are efficient and whose customer service is in line with our own standards. You are looked after and they will keep you updated on the transaction from initial instruction all the way through to completion. As with anything in life there can be issues that arise with your sale/purchase and this is where having a local solicitor that we work well with is vital. You can visit and discuss any arising situation and that personal touch is there. It is always easy to be led by cost and going for the cheapest option i.e. online companies may seem good, but you just have a team to deal with and can't visit them and therefore lose that personal touch. The solicitors we recommend are local and available for you to visit whenever required. Please feel free to contact us for a free cost of moving and details of the solicitors we recommend.

YOUR HOME MAY BE REPOSSESSED IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP REPAYMENTS ON YOUR MORTGAGE OR A LOAN SECURED ON IT.

Surveyors

Surveyors

In most cases pending your property purchase you will have a mortgage valuation set up by your mortgage lender. However, in some cases, depending on the age and condition of a property, you may want an independent surveyor's report on the property you are purchasing. Whilst a little more expensive in some instances it is money well spent.

Chequers have had a great working relationship with Creswell Associates set up by Tim Dunkley M.F.R.I.C.S over 11 years ago. With over 27 years experience surveying in the Basingstoke and surrounding Hampshire you are employing a quality surveyor with great knowledge and attention to detail. For details and a quote for a Homebuyers or more in-depth full structural survey please contact us on 01256 810018 and we will get Tim to contact you.

Auctions

Auctions

Our marketing is extremely proactive and in most cases very effective. However in some cases your timescales/situation or type of property may benefit from being put to auction. This is a superb way of achieving the optimum price but you know once the hammer has fallen a sale is agreed and guaranteed.

We have a number of high profile auction houses we are in touch with and will be more than happy to assist should an auction be the way forward for you.
