Residential Conveyancing

We guide you through buying and selling your home

Buying (or selling) your home is likely to be one of the most important, high-value and potentially stressful transactions you are likely to make. 

That’s why we take time to listen to what’s important to you and make sure that it is reflected in the legal negotiation and drafting of documents.   

We are different from unqualified conveyancers. They care about process, whereas we care about people. Our experienced, specialist property lawyers will act for you efficiently, effectively and without drama.  We will keep you informed of progress at every stage and guide you through the process to make it as painless as possible, as we have done for generations of clients over two centuries.

Our specialist residential property solicitors have a broad experience dealing with all kinds of properties, ranging from listed buildings to new build properties, and from country cottages and mansions to townhouses – throughout the UK.   

We help clients from all walks of life with:

  • Buying and selling your home
  • Re-mortgages
  • Holiday and buy-to-let investments
  • Residential property and building disputes
  • Shared ownership
  • Transfer of equity


Meet the Head of Residential Property – Chris Pease

Chris is the Joint Senior Partner, Head of the Private Team and Head of Residential Property.  Chris trained with a Cambridge firm with whom he remained after qualifying as a solicitor in 1986. He joined Longmores in 1997 to develop the firm’s residential property work. He became a partner in 2000 and Joint Senior Partner in 2017.

What does he like about working for Longmores?

“The experience of the Longmores team is unrivalled, both locally and nationally. There are not many things that crop up that we have not seen before. We are here to listen to problems and worries, and advise on them. My team and I always try to find a solution to problems, talk about the pros and cons, rather than leaving our clients to try to work out something for themselves.”


Examples of our work:

Acting on the sale of a listed country home, complicated by the discovery of a potential planning application to develop a neighbouring property and possible "gazumping".

Acting for a landowner in a land valuation arbitration to determine the fair sale price of a parcel of land to a developer.

Resolving a property dispute between two neighbours through mediation.
