Buying or selling a home

Buying or selling a home is one of the largest financial transactions you are likely to undertake.  It can also be one of the most stressful.  Purchases and sales will often involve a chain of linked transactions, all of which must be coordinated to ensure smooth and timely completion.

Our approach is rigorous, intelligent and diligent, but that seriousness of purpose can be combined with a sense of humour where it helps to smooth the path.  We communicate proactively with you throughout so that we minimise concerns.

Our specialist solicitors have many years’ experience and can guide you through the transaction process quickly and confidently. From period, picturesque country properties to contemporary new builds, our team are experienced in helping clients from all walks of life to buy and sell all types of property, [whether freehold or leasehold, including those with complex title issues].

Our sophisticated case management system ensures that routine paperwork is handled smoothly allowing our lawyers to focus on keeping you abreast of progress and answering any questions you may have.  Our attention to detail means that we uncover the issues that really matter in any property sale or purchase. We know the pitfalls to look out for and ask the right questions to ensure your transaction progresses as smoothly as possible.

No two transactions are alike and complications can arise from issues such as wills or tax.  Within our firm we have the expertise to handle any such issues as part of a complete, end-to-end service.


Examples of our work:

Buying a flat and extending the lease to improve mortgage eligibility.

Buying an unfinished new build house and arranging that the sale of the clients’ existing home should be delayed until their new home was ready.
