Howells complete over 25% of Help-to-Buy-Wales Purchases

Howells Solicitors are delighted to announce that we have completed 294 of the 1000 purchases of new homes in Wales using the Help-to-Buy-Wales scheme.

First Anniversary of Help-to-Buy-Wales

On the first anniversary of the Help-to-Buy-Wales scheme, the initiative celebrates the completion of the purchase of the 1,000th home bought through this scheme. The law firm responsible for completing the first sale using this scheme in February 2013 has been appointed by a further 293 clients to represent them in the sales process.

A Year of Success for Howells

This achievement is the culmination of a record and awarding winning year for the conveyancing department of the law firm. On average they have completed 800 residential purchases each month and in September were named as the Best Regional Conveyancing Firm of 2014 for the Wales and West Midlands region at the prestigious Law Firm Services Awards.

Mark Hobbs, managing partner of Howells Solicitors said, “We’re delighted to have been chosen to represent a record number of clients in 2014 and receive the award as recognition of the quality of work and high level of customer service provided by the conveyancing teams.”

Mr Hobbs continued, “When the Help to Buy-Wales scheme was announced we researched the details of the initiative, what was required from sellers and their legal representation and then undertook a marketing campaign to promote our knowledge base and expertise.”

“Our Swansea office completed the first Help to Buy-Wales new home purchase and our conveyancers in all six of our office have been busy since then working on others. The scheme has proven to be very successful for buyers and other parties involved in the residential market including homebuilders who are committing to build new houses to meet the increased demand.”
