Our service and Your free estimate

For most of us, our home is the largest financial investment we will ever make.

This alone can make buying property a stressful situation. When you add into the mix, dealing with estate agents, banks, building societies, local authorities, surveyors and others in the chain, it can also become a difficult and complicated process.

Whether you are buying, selling, re-mortgaging or have landlord and tenant issues, our Residential Property Team will provide a hands-on local and accessible lawyer to guide you through the process,

Our team will ensure that your transaction is always dealt with speedily, efficiently and professionally  — this is particularly important where completion is required as quickly as possible.

We don’t cut corners

An individual, qualified, professional property lawyer will deal thoroughly and carefully with your legal work. It is essential you have a specialist working for you to protect your investment and ensure that everything goes as smoothly as possible.

Although we recognise cost is important to our clients, we won’t compromise the quality of our service by cutting costs to the minimum, perhaps by taking less individual care, or having non-qualified staff do the work in an automated way.

You will know the name of the lawyer handling your case and that of their secretary, and one or the other will always be available to answer your questions.

We are members of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. This means that we meet the high standards that the Law Society requires when providing conveyancing services.

We will keep you up to date

We do not expect you to log on to our website to find out what is happening with your transaction — we encourage you to keep in contact through telephone or email.

We will keep you regularly informed, especially when some delay occurs beyond your or our control — this is all part of our normal service, without any extra charge.

We will help guide you through all aspects of your sale and/or purchase and we’re readily available at the end of the phone, by e-mail or fax and, of course, in person if you want to pop in and see us – whether you need a general chat to point you in the right direction or the reassurance as to how the conveyancing process works with all the estate agents, mortgage advisers, other solicitors and surveyors that could be involved.

We may also be able to advise you in your negotiations over the price and other matters..

Use our local knowledge

We enjoy excellent relationships with all the local estate agents and others with whom we have to deal and this can certainly help in keeping things on track.

We can introduce you to a reputable surveyor and help obtain the necessary Energy Performance Certificate.

We will Protect your investment

We will also point out any potential problems, for example a major infrastructure project that could affect the future value of your new home.

Other issues, such as a right of access or a restrictive covenant, which you would like removed, can be dealt with by our specialist lawyers.

We especially pride ourselves on putting our clients and their needs first. This, we believe, helps to achieve what we hope will be a stress-free move.

  • Dear Lisa, Maria and Tessa,

    Thank you all for your amazing support throughout last year. It really was a hideous experience, but every time I got to the point I couldn’t breathe and I spoke to one of you, I felt instantly strong again. You really are a fabulous team.

    When Margaret left, I was really worried, but Maria you picked up the baton and ran with it brilliantly. Then when Maria you obviously had to put your own family first, Tessa picked up the baton and just kept running for me. Lisa you made me giggle and reassured me whenever I was about to cry or hide in a cupboard, often picking up the phone to check I was ok – so very kind. Crackerjack will now forever remind me of you!

    I will recommend you to any of my friends who decide they need to take this brave step. You are simply the best. I hope you all enjoy your acorns, and remind you of how much you’ve helped people like me get out of unhappy situations. As they say, from acorns mighty oaks grow.

    Many thanks to you all,

    I kind of miss you!!
