Buying & Selling Property

Buying or selling a property is one of the most exciting experiences you can have, though it can often be a complex process. Our conveyancing and property solicitors team will be on hand to help support and advise you every step of the way to ensure your transaction proceeds as smoothly as possible. They will deal with all conveyancing legalities and enquiries on your behalf from obtaining searches, drafting and exchanging contracts to ultimately completing the transaction for you. We will liaise with the estate agents, other parties’ solicitors and mortgage company on your behalf throughout. A breakdown of our fees can be found here.


Re-mortgaging your property essentially means when you move your mortgage from your existing lender to a new one. There are various reasons why you might need to do this, such as saving money with a better mortgage deal or releasing money for home improvements for example.

Our team of specialist property solicitors can aid you with your re-mortgage, providing a quick and easy process to ensure that all legal checks and repayments to your existing mortgage provider are complete.

Property Transfers

Our conveyancing and property team of solicitors can assist if you wish to transfer ownership of your property to someone else. This is often required as part of a divorce settlement when someone has died or when gifting a property.

We will consider the legal title of the property, undertake all relevant checks and deal with the Land Registry on your behalf.

Shared Ownership & New Build Transactions

Shared Ownership is another way to buy your own home. You buy a percentage and pay rent on the rest, from 25% to 75%, and most of the homes available for this scheme are newly built. These are helpful schemes for those unable to buy a property outright due to limited borrowing capacity or available deposit.

All shared ownership homes are offered on a leasehold only basis.

Our team has a wealth of experience in dealing with these transactions and can provide comprehensive and professional advice throughout what can often be complex transactions.

New Build Transactions

Buying a new build home is becoming increasingly popular. Our team is assisting more and more clients with the purchase of their dream home.

There are a number of incentives available and additional considerations for your legal team to deal with when buying a newly built property and we have the experience and knowledge to assist with them all. 

There are important differences in dealing with newbuild transactions that our dedicated team will take care of for you.

Equity Releases

Equity release refers to the range of products (such as a lifetime mortgage or home reversion) allowing you to access cash tied up in your home if you are over the age of 55. With equity releases, the money can be released in a single lump sum or over several smaller payments.

It’s important to consider a number of factors before proceeding with an equity release to ensure that it is the best option for you and your future.

You will need a solicitor to help you complete an equity release due to the issues and possible future risks that can be involved. Please get in touch with us and our dedicated legal team can assist you.
