Our Property Department has over 20 years of experience of assisting with both Residential and Commercial Law.
Conveyancing is an important transaction in your life and it is essential that it is done properly by someone who gives you a good service, is knowledgeable, keeps you updated and explains things in a way that you understand. By doing this, together with our enthusiasm for the job, we are able to ensure that matters proceed quickly with the minimum of stress and strike up an excellent relationship with our clients, which is demonstrated by the amount of repeat business and recommendations that we have built up over the years.
Getting to know our clients is extremely important to us and feedback from them has shown that they find us friendly and approachable, yet professional. We understand that some people prefer the personal touch and the fact that our offices are so accessible means that our clients can quickly see or talk to us directly. We also appreciate that clients tend to like dealing with the same person throughout the course of a transaction.

We can assist in the legal discharge of a mortgage when it has been paid off.

Home owners of mature years can have a large asset invested in their homes. Some decide to down-size to a smaller home thus releasing equity for them to enjoy in their later life. For others, this may not be an option if they wish to remain in the family home. However, there is another option available to them. Some financial institutions are now offering equity release products which allow the homeowner to release some equity from their property but at the same time, remain living in their own home. Equity release has become very popular in the last few years and there are various types of products on offer. We are happy to put our clients in touch with fully qualified financial consultants who can advise on the best product to suit their needs.
