Our in depth local knowledge and our strong relationships with developers and estate agents means that we are able to liaise seamlessly and provide you with the best service we can.

We will allocate you with one of our team of friendly professional conveyancers, who will handle your matter from start to finish. We realise that buying and selling property can be very stressful, that’s why we keep you fully informed at all times with all the relevant information and developments. Your dedicated conveyancer is constantly on hand to answer any questions or queries that may arise. We are also able to offer you access to your matter and its progress online, via our secure log-in panel on our website. We can also keep you updated via text message or email, specifying important developments and updates that occur during the transaction; this means that you can keep up to date with your matter wherever you are in the world.

The expected time for the buying process is usually up to 16 weeks. From the time your offer is accepted, it can take up to 12 weeks to exchange contracts. From there, it can take another 4 weeks to complete, and get your keys. However, it’s worth noting that this process can take more or less time depending on searches, the number of people in the chain, any issues or queries arising from the sale, or many other factors which may come up during the process. Further guidance from the gov.uk website on the buying and selling process can be found here.

We are proud to have achieved the Legal Eye Quality Standard which sets us apart in the conveyancing field.
