Oglethorpe Sturton & Gillibrand were proud to support NatWest Bank last week with their First Time Buyer event at NatWest’s Lancaster branch.

The event was designed to help those about to take their first steps on to the housing ladder by providing information on the house buying process. The bank staff were on hand to provide mortgage advice, alongside local estate agents Houseclub to help with the initial house search and our team from Oglethorpe Sturton & Gillibrand to give details on the legal process once you have an offer accepted.

We fully understand that this very exciting time for new buyers can also be worrying. Our property team at Oglethorpe Sturton & Gillibrand are happy to answer any queries on the conveyancing process, from what happens when an offer is accepted, right through to the moment you receive the keys to your new home.

Support for First Time Buyers has increased recently, with new Government initiatives such as ‘Help to Buy’ mortgages and ISAs seeing more and more people taking their first steps on to the property ladder. Oglethorpe Sturton & Gillibrand are experienced in these schemes, and our expertise is recognised by our inclusion on the panel of solicitors for a large number of banks.

Our property team at Oglethorpe Sturton & Gillibrand will be happy to answer any property related queries and provide a bespoke quotation for any potential house purchase, with no obligation on your part.
