As you embark upon purchasing a new home or selling your existing property, it is prudent to take professional legal advice at an early stage in the process. Quite often one’s emotions take hold and what should be an objective decision making process becomes shrouded in subjectivity.

It is extremely important to remember that once you have signed the agreement, a legally binding contract comes into force with the ensuing legal obligations.
