Transfers of Property

Sometimes you may want to change who owns your property and on what basis. This can sometimes happen when two people move in together and want to own the property in joint names, or perhaps following a marriage breakdown, when the matrimonial home is transferred into the wife or husband’s sole name. Whatever the situation, you need the right advice to establish whether there will be any tax liability or to obtain the mortgage company’s consent to the transfer. Our team of property solicitors can help.


For most people, buying a house with the aid of a mortgage is essential. But sometimes our clients want to change their mortgage, for a variety of reasons. Your legal adviser has to be fully accredited by mortgage lenders to carry out work for them as well as for you. You can rest assured that we are accredited under the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme and approved by all of the main mortgage lenders.

New Build Purchases

Often our clients buy their dream home when it hasn’t yet been built or is still in the construction phase! You need a lawyer who understands all the complexities these transactions carry. Whether that’s planning permission implementation, road and drainage adoption or dealing with the added regulation on a purchase, we have the expertise to help.

Help to Buy Schemes

The government’s Help to Buy Scheme was introduced in April 2013 in order to help those on the first rung of the property ladder. There are a number of additional hoops to jump through, distinct from a normal conveyancing transaction. We can help you to take advantage of the Scheme and provide you with up to date advice.
