The Law Society - Conveyancing

Easing the Burden

Buying or selling a property can be a stressful and complicated experience; whether your home, part of a commercial or buy-to-let transaction. Our specialist legal team will take care of all aspects of the process for you, whatever the focus of your transaction, providing a detailed estimate for the cost of the work involved.

We have extensive experience in all areas and can provide a comprehensive and efficient service, ensuring that all aspects of the transaction run as smoothly as possible, and that you are not left with any undisclosed problems once completion has taken place. We will work closely with your estate agent to ensure that your chain runs smoothly, and can also act for your mortgage lender in most cases to make the process as cost-effective and efficient as possible.

We can provide you with advice on all related issues – whether different forms of joint ownership and their tax and legal ramifications;  Lease or tenancy agreements;  schedules of condition or dilapidation; or even adverse possession, easement or Lease extension applications for your new property. We can also check for you that your Wills properly provide for the onward inheritance of your new property.

Our team of conveyancing experts have been accredited by the Law Society as part of the Conveyancing Quality Scheme, and are proud to have met, and continue to meet on an ongoing basis, the requirements imposed by the Law Society.

  • Buying & Selling Residential Property
