Conveyancing is the process referred to as transferring ownership of property or land, from buying, selling and transferring equity in properties.
Selling and transferring land and property can be extremely complex and there are strict rules in place that regulate how these transactions should be handled. Therefore, it is important to seek proper legal advice from the outset, by speaking to Conveyancing Solicitor.
Our experts will also help you identify any potential risks or pitfalls along the way, by conducting the required due diligence.
How can we help?
Whether you need guidance with buying your first home, or you are already an experienced buyer, we are on hand to help regardless of the circumstances.
Our Conveyancing Solicitors are experienced in all areas of buying and selling property, including:
- Auction property.
- Buy to let.
- Buying a house or flat.

- Selling a house or flat.

We can also liaise with Mortgage Brokers, Lenders and Estate Agents on your behalf, minimising the amount of work you must do and making sure there are no unnecessary delays or important details missed.
Buying a House or Flat
If you are buying a house or flat it can be an exciting chapter in your life, but the process must be handled properly.
Our team will help you throughout the process, from pre-contract right through to completion. We support our clients in purchasing a variety of properties, including rural, agricultural, urban, leasehold, freehold, new build, auction and listed properties.
Exchange of Contracts
Our team will help you with the Exchange of Contracts. This is the process that makes a buyer and seller legally bound to the transaction and aims to set out the date of completion.
Once an Exchange of Contracts has been finalised, penalties can be imposed on any party that withdraws from the transaction.
You must seek appropriate guidance from the outset and ensure that you are fully aware of all the facts before you exchange the contracts.
What Happens on the Day of Completion?
Once all the monies owed to the seller are paid, you will then be able to collect the keys. This is known as the day of completion.
This date is usually a pre-arranged date agreed at the time when the contracts were exchanged with both solicitors.
On this day, the legal ownership of the property is transferred from the seller to the buyer. The buyer will then become the new owner of the property.
Where possible we will offer a fixed fee, so you will know what the costs are from the start. For more complex or uncertain projects, we will provide you with an estimate of the likely fees involved and keep you updated throughout the matter.
