Ron Prior manages the domestic conveyancing, assisted by a team including Sheena Norris. Our dedicated team process many of the actual exchanges and ensure that your completion arrangements go through smoothly on the day.

Our computerised Case Management system (hosted by DPS Plc) means that all our offices are linked to the same network, ensuring that if you contact us with a routine query, this information can be accessed and passed onto you by our reception staff.

We try to make our fees competitive, and unlike some other solicitors, pass on any fee discounts to you, rather than paying introducer’s fees to brokers or estate agents. We nonetheless have a good rapport with most local agents, and work in conjunction with them to ensure the smooth running of your transaction.

We aim to deal with matters promptly and wherever possible try to ensure that any incoming mail is dealt with on the day it is received. Your file is looked after by experienced personnel who are dedicated to helping you with your move as expediently as possible, without on the other hand detracting from the thoroughness of the investigations we need to make on behalf of yourself and your Lender.

On the day of completion we make every effort to process monies as quickly as possible, again by use of computer technology via our own direct terminal link to HSBC to process payments as swiftly as we can once incoming monies are received from third parties.

Finally, once you have completed your sale, our post-completion departments process any Stamp Duty payments and registration of your Title to the new property you have purchased. This finalises our task, since not only do we need to make sure that you complete your move, but also to ensure that next time round, or in the event of a future re-mortgage, your deeds etc are in order to enable the successful conduct of such later transactions.

For more details of the day to day matters we investigate on your behalf, please also feel free to refer to our Conveyancing Fact Sheet.

Buying a brand new home can be a slightly different process. If you need more detailed information in that , please refer to the Brand New Homes page. Our aim at all times is to facilitate a smooth move as economically as possible for you.

Common Questions

Q: What if I have no money for a deposit?
A. If this is the case, please let us know as soon as possible. It may be that you are borrowing more than 90% of the purchase price, or that your money is all tied up in a sale or re-mortgage of another property. Our staff can advise you as to what course of action to take.
