Residential Conveyancing

Residential Conveyancing is the legal process of purchasing or selling a house.

Solicitors are often hired to help with the sale or purchase of a house because the buyer / seller is not sufficiently familiar with the process. Where mortgages are involved, the lender will require a solicitor to be appointed to act for and on their behalf.

Our expert property lawyer, Robert Swinburne, is always happy to talk to clients and provide guidance throughout the process of buying or selling a residential property. We can advise in the complex area of residential property law, offering friendly and dependable support and legal advice.

We are committed to giving you as much help and guidance as you need, helping to ensure the sale or purchase proceeds without any complications.

Whether you are in the process of selling your home or buying a new home, we are well positioned to deliver market-leading services in a practical, cost-effective way.
