First-Time Buyers

Our team of expert property lawyers will make the purchase of your first home as straightforward and stress-free as possible. Securing the right property lawyer is vital; we provide a highly personalised service that meets your needs and exceeds your expectations.

Buying your first home is an extremely exciting time but it can also be a time of uncertainty.

At Biscoes, we will guide you through the process. We understand that as a first-time buyer, a lot of the legal jargon and the conveyancing process itself will likely be completely foreign to you. We are happy to take the time to step you through the process and answer any queries you may have.

Crucially, we are proactive on your behalf and will communicate with your mortgage lender, your mortgage broker, estate agents, and other parties to complete the purchase as quickly as possible.

Every client benefits from a designated lawyer to guide you through the process  and oversee the transaction from the point of instruction through to completion.  We also have an internal locum who provides cover in the event your designated lawyer is unwell or on holiday, to ensure there is no delay to your matter.

Our Residential Property Team has many years of experience supporting first-time buyers across Portsmouth, Hampshire, the Isle of Wight, and beyond. Biscoes is a member of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS), which is a recognised quality standard for firms in the industry undertaking Residential Conveyancing.  The scheme is recognised by various financial bodies, such as The Council of Mortgage Lenders and Building Societies Association, meaning that we are able to deal with the vast majority of Mortgage Lenders on your behalf.

We will provide a full breakdown of the likely costs of the transaction at the outset.
