Buying your home is often the biggest investment you are likely to make so it’s important that you have expert advice to ensure the process runs smoothly. You need a specialist conveyancing legal team who want to get you into your new home, just as much as you do.

We help a wide range of people, from first and second time buyers and investment property buyers to savvy owners of wide property portfolios, with prime residential properties in England and Wales varying from one bedroom flats to multi-million pound properties and everything in-between.

We make the most of our local knowledge and connections with local property professionals, including agents, auctioneers, surveyors and architects, to make sure they understand what you want, as they often have a different set of priorities. We also have a dedicated team of planning lawyers who can help you with the best way of securing planning permission if you need it.

Our conveyancers, who manage the legal process of moving ​land or ​property from one ​owner to another, are accredited by the Law Society Conveyancing Quality Scheme, a recognised quality standard for residential property buying and selling.
