Investment and buy to let properties
More and more people are enjoying the rewards of investing in property. And buying-to-let is a great way to ensure that your property provides a regular income and strong return on your investment. The key to successful property investment is to do your homework and seek expert legal advice before investing in a property.
At Silks Solicitors we can help you with every stage of the property investment journey from choosing the right property to finding suitable tenants. We’ll also help ensure that your investment is sound and take care of all the legal aspects from arranging searches and surveys to drafting a sound tenancy agreement. When buying-to-let there are different legal requirements to buying your own home and so it’s always worth speaking with a solicitor that specialises in this area. Our property solicitors provide friendly, common-sense advice for all aspects of property investment and are experts in landlord and tenant law. We’ll explain what rights you have as a landlord and help you understand the responsibilities you have to your tenants. For first-time landlords, our advice is invaluable, providing the peace of mind that everything is in place and legally sound. For advice about investment and buy to let properties, call one of our experts today on 0121 511 2233.

Remortgaging
As a homeowner, at some point you may wish to consider remortgaging – either to take advantage of a better mortgage deal or to release money from your property. And with different mortgage providers offering different deals, you may wish to consider changing to a new lender.
At Silks Solicitors we make remortgaging as quick and simple as possible. We’ll guide you through the process, taking care of any paperwork and legal checks. We’ll also review the terms of your existing mortgage so that you don’t uncover any surprises further down the line. Our friendly solicitors are experts in all areas of property law but will always speak your language – not legal jargon, giving you the confidence that you’re making the right decisions at every stage. With our free initial telephone conversation and no hidden costs policy, finding out more about your remortgaging options is straightforward. Call us today on 0121 511 2233 to arrange a chat with one of our experts today.
Planning Law
If you are looking to make changes to your home, there are planning laws that say what you can, and cannot do. There are also certain processes to follow. Silks Solicitors take away many of the worries as we know you have enough on your plate.
Planning law ensures you don’t change your property, or build a new one, without thinking about the wider community. You need to know what these legal controls are. Planning laws are complex. If you want to change the use of your property or your gardens, you will need to do this properly. If you wish to object to changes made by your neighbours, there is a way to do this too. And for anyone living in a listed building or conservation area, you need to know what laws apply. We explain planning laws as simply as we can. Our lawyers are experts, so you have the comfort of knowing we won’t knowingly let you upset your neighbours. You will be kept in touch with throughout the process. We promise that any queries you have will be dealt with promptly. Make contact with Silks Solicitors and together, we can plan the best way for you to achieve your property dream. Call us today on 0121 511 2233.
Leasehold Properties
If you’re looking for advice about leaseholds, we’re here to help. Leasehold is a particular type of property ownership that comes with its own unique legal rights and responsibilities. Many flats in the UK are sold on a leasehold basis but leasehold can apply to other properties too.
Because leasehold is a specialist area of property law, it’s a good idea to seek legal advice before entering into any leasehold agreements. Leases vary from one property to another and so it’s important that you understand all of your legal rights when buying a leasehold property. You’ll want to know details such as how long the lease has left to run, whether you are allowed to make any improvements to the property, and who is responsible for ongoing maintenance costs. At Silks Solicitors we advise on all the legal aspects of leasehold properties – whether you are planning to buy or sell a leasehold. We can also advise you on your rights and provide help if you’re experiencing difficulties with a current leasehold property. Our friendly solicitors will explain the process clearly and answer any questions you may have. We offer a free, initial over-the-phone conversation, so you can find out about our service, timescales and costs with no obligations. So for advice about leasehold property law, contact one of our experts today.
Tenancy Agreements and Deposits
Whether you’re a landlord or a tenant, it makes good sense to have a solid tenancy agreement in place. Not only will this highlight your rights and responsibilities but it will also help maintain a positive relationship between you and your landlord or tenant.
A tenancy agreement is a contract between a tenant and a landlord. It should clearly explain what is expected of each party, providing everyone with the peace of mind that they know where they stand. As well as asking a tenant to sign a tenancy agreement, landlords are also legally entitled to request a deposit before letting a property to a tenant. The deposit provides security to the landlord but should be returned to the tenant at the end of the lease, providing that the terms set out in the tenancy agreement have been met. Landlords are now legally required to place the deposit in one of three government-backed tenancy deposit schemes. Silks Solicitors offers expert advice regarding tenancy agreements and deposits for both tenants and landlords. So if you have a question or would like to find out how we can help, give us a call today on 0121 511 2233. Our friendly and knowledgeable property solicitors are here for you and our free first advice promise ensures that it won’t cost you a penny to see how we can help you. With no hidden costs and our same day response promise, you can get answers to your questions quickly and easily.
Transfer of Title
Are you looking to transfer the ownership of a property from one person to another? Although this is a fairly straightforward process, it’s important that it is completed correctly to ensure everything progresses smoothly and to avoid unexpected problems in the future.
Our expert property solicitors can help with every stage of a transfer of title, providing the support to complete your transfer efficiently and correctly. We’ll contact the Land Registry on your behalf and ensure that all the necessary documentation is completed properly. We will also explain any factors that may arise from the transfer – giving you the peace of mind that all the legal details have been covered correctly. We’ll keep you informed throughout every stage to help ensure that your transfer process is swift and straightforward. So if you’d like to chat with our experts about a transfer of title, call us today on 0121 511 2233.
Buying at Auction
Buying property at auction can be an exciting experience and is often a great way to get a good deal. However, it can also be a step into the unknown – particularly if it’s your first time. By talking to a legal expert before buying at auction you can approach the process with confidence and avoid costly mistakes.
Silks Solicitors can advise you on all the important aspects to consider before bidding at auction, helping to ensure that any property you do bid on will be a sound investment. We can also take care of all the legal practicalities of the sale/purchase, from checking property ownership to arranging surveys and searches. Our friendly and knowledgeable property auction solicitors will give you all the guidance you need to be able to enter the purchase with confidence. With our help, buying a property at auction can be very rewarding. Call us today on 0121 511 2233 to speak to a property solicitor. With our same day response promise and no hidden costs policy, we make property law straightforward and hassle-free.

From myself and my wife, we would like to thank you for your work and time in helping us to purchase this property.
