If a seller and a buyer both use Juno for a transaction, we usually complete the transaction 2-3 weeks faster.

Southampton is a desirable city with a diverse range of properties.

The specific property’s history, any potential environmental factors and the results from property searches should also be carefully examined.

What documents do I need to buy a house in Southampton?

You’ll need a photo ID (like a passport or driving licence), a proof of your funds (such as your bank statements), and your mortgage offer when buying a property.

What documents do I need to sell my house in Southampton?

Rated ‘Excellent’ on Trustpilot


I had tried other conveyancers but was not very impressed. Like everyone the internet was next and Juno came up. Checked the reviews and they were positive. So I used them for the sale of my house. I am very impressed with them and the dashboard they use. They kept me up to date with the total experience. Very reasonably priced.

Juno has an online portal updating you every step of the way, it was so convenient and we received emails when there was something for us to do. Their portal is where all the required forms are completed and electronically signed. If we needed to call them our phone calls were answered quickly and if not they will call you back!
