About our legal conveyancing services

Our dedicated team of conveyancing lawyers and supporting paralegal progressors provide an unrivalled level of attention, treating each transaction with care and consideration.

We recognise that no two transactions or clients’ requirements are the same and we seek to match our services to meet every need, mindful that this can be a stressful experience which we seek to offset wherever possible. It is this level of care and attention that is reflected in our status as amongst the Law Society’s largest firms accredited with the Conveyancing Quality Scheme.

Our expert team progress our clients' instructions for 10,000 properties bought and sold each year, while our clients include private individuals, property investors, developers and lenders.

We were also the first ever professional services firm recognised with ‘legal partner’ status by Which? the Consumer Association. Yet, we are most proud of the feedback we consistently receive from our clients, evidenced by our 5-Star Trustpilot rating.

Our approach

For everyone who engages with us, you should find us:

  • Easy to communicate with: we all offer our direct dial phone numbers for straightforward access to us with advice in plain English;
  • Approachable: up to seven days a week and weekday evenings;
  • Personal: with every transaction benefiting from a dedicated adviser and progresser; and
  • Transparent: with secure access to transaction milestones and our pricing committing to a fixed price project cost wherever possible, only accounting for our fees on successful completion of a transaction.

For these reasons, we are increasingly a recommended firm of choice for clients, estate and land agents, mortgage brokers and financial advisers, housing developers, lenders and housing charities with a growing client following each year benefiting from and subsequently recommending us to friends and family. Failed transactions are wherever possible avoided as we seek solutions to overcome some of the challenges encountered as titles, planning history and contract negotiations are navigated.
