Used Banner Jones for sale and purchase of property. From start to finish 8 weeks. Communication via post, email and telephone. Never made to feel that I couldn’t ask questions if unsure. Sandra Potter very friendly. Would 100% recommend.Miss G, Wingerworth
We opted to use Banner Jones for assistance with our property purchase. We found Sandra and the team to be extremely professional and great with communication. All round impressed, would use again for other services. Thank YouMr & Mrs S, Chesterfield
Sandra was extremley helpful and efficient, she was aware that I wanted to purchase my house as soon as possible so that I could have refurbishments done. She activiely pushed the process forward as quickly as she could. I appreciated the extra time she took answering my questions and concerns. I wouldnt have understood the process without her advice and guidance.Miss D, Clay Cross
Sandra went the extra mile to get us into our new home quickly. I can't thank her enough and would definitley use Sandra again, highly recommended.Mr H & Mrs D, Chesterfield
Thanks so much for all the hard work. Even though the chain wasn't without it's issues, we found you both to be swift in your responses and supportive to us as a family.
You'll be pleased to know we love our new home and have settled in brilliantly.Mr & Mrs H, Chesterfield
Cheryl Bradley helped us with the sale of our property. She was marvellous, nothing was ever too much trouble, always at the other end of the phone when we needed her. I would recommend Banner Jones to anyone, they were brilliant. A very big thank you.Mr & Mrs L, Mansfield
I just wanted to say, thank you so much for all your help and patience with me over the last few months. It took a long time to get there with the mortgage but you helped me out so much to get it pushed through quickly at the end! I would certainly recommend you to any of my friends who want to buy a house in the future. You have done a fantastic job, thank you :-)Miss W, Chesterfield
The service provided by Josh and Emilie was flawles... I did mainly deal with Emilie and I would just like to say the professional service, attention to detail and support provided by Emilie Griffiths with the situation of selling the current family home and purchasing my new property was second to none. The support and understanding helped get me through a dificult part in my life and I can't thank Banner Jones enough for all their efforts.Mr B, Mansfield
Thank you Sandra! You have been the most helpful and have made thus experience so easy and simple for us. Can’t thank you enough!Ms D
Catherine made suggestions for options, but listened carefully to what I wanted, and was calming when I was worried. She was patient although I had to ask her to wait and the process became more complicated than expected. However they didn’t charge me extra and even paid me interest on money they’d help on my behalf.Mrs D, Sheffield
Amazing Lisa - thank you so much for being super efficient and helpful with the whole process - compared to when bought this house (with another company) it's been a breeze!Mrs S, Sheffield
We would like to thank you for your professional service throughout the sale, and the purchase. We feel the communication between yourself and us has been strong throughout, and we will definitely recommend you to anyone we know of who requires a conveyancing solicitor, as well as using you ourselves again in the future.Mr & Mrs E, Brampton
Lisa and associates all excellent and very approachable. Would use again and will recommend.Mrs J, Handsworth
We wanted to write to say thank you for helping us. In particular we’d like to note our gratitude to Hollie Watkins who has not only been most professional but supported and put up with our anxieties, always chasing and keeping us abreast of developments. This has made the whole process slightly less stressful and we really appreciate her help.Mr W, Salford Quays
We would both like to say a huge thank you for all your help! We're aware we probably weren't the easiest clients what with strange addresses, losing the first house and pushy vendors! You've both been great, really helpful and clear with what you were doing for us. So thank you!Miss C, Sheffield
Dear Jamie and Alison, I have checked my account and the payment landed before lunchtime, thank you. I’ve never had a bank balance so big in my life, I may need to frame the Bank Statement!! A great big THANK YOU for everything you’ve done and for all your help, support and patience, it’s very much appreciated. Many thanks and best regardsMrs E, Dalton
I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all your help with the annoyingness you have had to deal with, we understand it wasn't an easy process but we fully appreciated how brilliant you were, we would highly recommend you. Was always a pleasure to speak even through the chaos. Thanks to Jayne also.Mrs S, Wharncliffe
Thanks for your hard work in this I have been very impressed with your efficiency throughout this process.Mr & Mrs D, Calow
Dear Sally, Catherine and Clare, I would just like to say thank you to you all for making our house move remarkably straightforward and stress free. The move went very smoothly on Friday and we are very happy in our new home. Hopefully, we won't be moving again any time soon, but thanks again!Mr & Mrs F, Sheffield
I write in regard to your conveyancing services on our son's property purchase on the Isle of Wight. We are pleased to say he and his fiancé took possession mid September and are happy in their first 'real' home. At the time of your contact with us we had two other unrelated conveyancing processes in play, and I am pleased to inform you we are very impressed with your swift service. I wish I had found you sooner as one of the two - straightforward, no chain property services - has yet to complete (latest projection is late October 2016!) much to our increasing annoyance! We shall be looking to sell our property in the future and will retain your contact details for conveyancing purposes. I would recommend your business to friends and family. Thank you once again for your swift services.Mr & Miss G, Isle of Wight
The service provided during our recent moving house was excellent. We were kept up to date on progress, and the problems that arose were dealt with in a timely fashion. Communication by email was easy and informative. We would definitely recommend Banner Jones.Miss D, Pleasley Vale
Thanks so much for what you have done, and for keeping me updated with everything. I will be sure to recommend you. Take care!Miss B, Calow
Hi Chris, hope you're well! Really pleased to say that we've finally completed on our sale and purchase :) Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks for your help.

Polite and friendly. Very professional. Excellent service.Mrs D, Old Whittington

Thank you once again for everythingMr & Mrs H, Chesterfield
Hello Gemma, thank you for your help and assistance in both completing the sale and purchase.

You made it easy for us.Mr A, Chesterfield
Thanks so much to you and Jayne for all your help and hand holding - it has been very much appreciated!Ms W, Sheffield

Mr & Mrs A, Chesterfield
All interactions with Banner Jones staff have been very friendly and efficient.Mr J, Chesterfield
Now that the dust has settled I just wanted to thank you for your dealing with the coveyancing for the sale of our Mother's flat. I know it was rather more protracted than expected but thanks for your perseverence and professional approach.Mr G & Mrs B, Sutton
We are most grateful to you for all your hard work and diligence in seeing through this sale to a conclusion.Mr R, Chesterfield
We were extremely happy with the quick, efficient way that our house purchase was handled by Karen Askew. Time was very important as we were in danger of losing the property if we had not completed the purchase within a few weeks. Thank you very much Karen,Mr & Mrs C, Worksop
We just want to express our sincere thanks for the professional and efficient way in which you and your team have dealt with the conveyancing following the sale of my late Aunt's property.

A big thank you to you and your team for the excellent advice, guidance and service provided for our sale/purchase.
We have thankfully never had any concerns that you and the team were always with us, providing 100% support.
In particular the way you have embraced electronic communications and process shines out when compared to the 'dictate, type, post' methods hung on to by other solicitors in our chain.
You have provided not only responsive guidance and process but an experienced and sympathetic counselling service when the frustrations set in.
We are already recommending you to friends.Mr & Mrs W, Chesterfield
Sincerely thank you for your support, insight and expertise in helping me to get most of what is due to us.
You and Banner Jones will always be recommended by me to anyone who is in trouble (and better still, to deal with conveyancing in an appropriate manner).
You’ve been a rock and I can’t thank you enough for getting me here.Ms L Sheffield
I just wanted to say a big thank you for all of the work you put in on our aborted purchase. We both really appreciated how awesomely efficient and friendly you are, how prompt you were in getting back to us every time we got in touch with you, how we got a clear answer to every question we asked and the moral support we derived from your excellent advice. Having you as our solicitor was a pleasure and an enormous help.Mrs S, Tylwch

I just wanted to say Thank You for the work that banner jones have done for me over the last few months. You have just completed registering the Deeds to the house in my name. Everyone I have dealt with from obtaining letters of administration to the registration of the Deeds have been efficient and so easy to deal with. Your two receptionists dealt me in a very kind and professional manner. You seem to have excellent staff and I had no hesitation in recommending you to other people.Mrs. B, Chesterfield
Thank you very much for your service which has been excellent in this unprecedented time. I was expecting delays due to Covid-19 but have been pleasantly surprised that you and your team have dealt with the sale in a professional and timely manner.Ms M, Chesterfield
Once again, Thank you
I just wanted to say thank you for completing our house move. We are surrounded by boxes, but very happy to be in and hopefully we will now be settled before Christmas.
Many people have commented on how quickly the move went through and that is thanks to you both, it is much appreciated.Miss N, Sheffield
The current market and national economy is so uncertain that people may choose to wait and indeed remove their risk by pulling out of the transaction. Although there is no reason not to carry on as normal in terms of the legal process we have to consider slower transaction times or hesitant investors or buyers.
You can withdraw from a sale or purchase up until the point contracts have been exchanged. Any deposits paid after exchange of contract will then by non-refundable. After contracts are exchanged you are then responsible for the property you are buying and should arrange suitable insurance from this date.
A local authority search completed for a house purchase is valid for 3 months.
We usually say 4-6 weeks for an average sale or purchase. Queries and concerns can often come out of the local authority searches which need further investigation and sometimes this leads to re-approval from the Mortgage lender. This can add further time into the process.
Unfortunately, in this situation the seller will not be able to give vacant possession, which will lead to completion delays. As a preventative measure, as per question 1, we can offer to exchange contracts and complete on the same day, which ensures that contracts are only exchanged if all parties in the chain are able to move on that day, thus reducing the risk to all parties. This can be more stressful so we ask that clients be sensible and accommodating of the situation.
If banks or mortgage lenders are unable to move funds around due to staffing shortages then this will disrupt your completion, however, be reassured that they will be doing everything they can to prevent this scenario.
Unfortunately, in this situation the seller will not be able to give vacant possession, which will lead to completion delays and penalties. If this situation arises, we ask that clients be sensible and accommodating of the unprecedented situation. If contracts have been exchanged then usually it would result in interest and compensation being paid to you, however if you are in a chain the same will apply to your buyers, so to keep the chain going it may be better just to accept the delay. As a preventative measure, we can offer to exchange and completion on the same day which ensure that contracts are only exchanged if all parties in the chain are able to move on that day.
Under normal circumstances, we would not recommend simultaneous exchange and completion as it does have its risks, since there is no guarantee, until the day itself that you will actually be moving. This means that if you are paying deposits to removal companies or arranging for services to be disconnected when we have no legal assurance that you will move. Please be aware that if you do instruct us to carry out a simultaneous exchange and completion this is done entirely at your own risk and Banner Jones Solicitors cannot be held responsible for any losses that you might incur if the transaction does not complete.
At Banner Jones, our highly trained experts offer support and care to all of our clients. We also offer a sensitive approach to each case whilst also ensuring that all of our services are fully confidential. We will provide you with informative house conveyancing advice that will help you through the conveyancing process.
So why choose Banner Jones as your conveyancing solicitors?
