Main Areas Of Practice


Our team of residential property experts and conveyancing solicitors are highly experienced in advising clients on every legal aspect relating to residential property sales or purchases, including:

Conveyancing

We deliver a highly personalised residential conveyancing service with the professional expertise and knowledge that can only be provided by an appropriately qualified lawyer acting on your behalf. Our conveyancing solicitors will deal with your residential property sale or purchase efficiently and effectively, taking time to explain the transaction to you in plain English. We will provide a clear and competitive quote for the process at the outset. We are accredited under the Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS).

Buying property at auction

When the hammer falls at a property auction a binding contract is concluded. This means all legal checks need to be completed before bidding. Our residential property lawyers can give you piece of mind.

Shared ownership/shared equity

We have specialists experienced in acting for both individuals and Housing Associations who can and advise you on the requirements and ensure the correct procedures are followed.

Extending a lease and/or buying the freehold

For tenants who may have the right to enfranchise (purchase the freehold) or to extend their lease, we advise on all aspects of the process, from whether you qualify, to approval of the necessary documentation.

Transfers of equity/deeds of gift

It may be necessary to change the ownership of your property, for example following a separation or divorce. In these instances, and many others, a transfer of equity will be required and we can prepare this for you.

Financial arrangements

We can assist in connection with all mortgages (redemption of an existing mortgage, re-mortgage with a new lender, or the taking of a new mortgage when buying a property), private loans and Home Equity Release Schemes.

Residential tenancies and licences

We can prepare Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreements or licences.

Granting and terminating rights of way and other easements

Rights of way and other easements include rights of access to and from a property, parking area or common area; rights of drainage and other services; rights of repair and many more.

Residential property services for businesses

These include: acquisition and disposal of businesses with residential property attached; relocation conveyancing schemes; residential property services for new developments; and farm land sales and purchase and agricultural tenancies.

Second homes/investment properties

We have significant expertise in advising clients on residential property portfolio sales and on buying residential properties for buy-to-let, investment or development purposes, or simply to help the next generation onto the property ladder. Specifically, we can advise on Stamp Duty Land Tax and the wider tax implications, on HMOs (Homes of Multiple Occupancy) and Local Authority planning requirements.

Highlights


Purchase of a leasehold flat in London W2 as a second property. The sale was on a strict 7 day exchange deadline, there were a large number of documents to review and the landlord had various requirements to be attended to prior to a licence to assign being issued. We exchanged contracts within the deadline with time to spare.


Purchase of a freehold property in London. It was a grade II listed building which had been converted into a single dwelling house and we had to ensure that all the necessary planning consents and permissions had been obtained.


Purchase of a freehold property in Oxford. The property had previously been used as a lodge for schools before becoming a residential property. Clients have purchased with the intent to carry out renovations of which our Construction team has been instructed to advise on the build contracts.


Purchase of a riverside property in Berkshire. This was a complex purchase of a residential property, with no clear access and services rights for the property. The client is likely to part demolish and rebuild the house, which is on a wonderful site with mooring rights.
