Melinda Giles - Podcast 07

In the seventh episode of the #TVLawyer Podcast, Melinda Giles speaks to Residential Property Client Support Executive Flora Wallace about the important first stages involved in buying and selling a home.

Whether someone is looking to make the move to their dream home, or a family has decided it is time to sell up and move elsewhere, the first question people often want to know is “How much will it all cost?”

Working closely with clients as they begin their journey, Flora Wallace knows better than anyone what steps are involved, and the essential fees to consider along the way. Here, she and Melinda Giles talk through the aspects involved in buying or selling a house, and why trusted, local solicitors are such an asset throughout this process.

In this episode, they discuss:

  • When clients should approach a solicitor for guidance buying or selling a home

  • The costs and fees associated with moving to a new house

  • What the overall procedure for buying and selling looks like

  • The value of working with trusted, local residential conveyancer

  • What details are and are not required when putting a property on the market

  • The risk of fraud and what you should look for in a trusted solicitor
