FAQFrequently Asked Questions

How does this service work?

Once you instruct us we will telephone you to confirm the details you have given and to introduce ourselves. We will then send you all the literature we need you to fill in. We shall then operate just like any other solicitor dealing with conveyancing work on your behalf.

Who will carry out my conveyancing?

The introductory letter will set out who will be dealing with your case. All matters are supervised by an experienced conveyancing Solicitor and you will be able to speak directly to the person dealing with your case.

How do we communicate?

It is entirely up to you. We can deal mainly by post or by email (although we do need to send some documents to you through the post at the end of the matter) and of course you will be able to speak to us by telephone throughout.

Is your quote guaranteed?

Yes. Unlike some other firms, once we have spoken and confirmed the quote to you our legal charges will not increase unless we have to carry out work not usually involved in a conveyancing transaction. We do not control the cost of disbursements (items paid to other people) and therefore if the cost of these rises (or falls) then this will be passed on. In Leasehold purchases there may be additional sums payable to the Landlord which we will not know about until we receive the paperwork.

We will be pleased to help you in any property matters.
