If you are moving house, buying your first property or investing in property then
protecting your investment (particularly in the current climate) should be a priority for you.

Whilst conveyancing may be the least expensive part of buying a house, the information it discloses will remain the most important consideration for a buyer before contracts are exchanged.

Conveyancing deals with the transfer of land, which is unlike the sale of other assets. Land is permanent and may become subject to rights and obligations over a period of time. Some of these rights may be evident upon inspection of the property, but others will not.

When acting for a buyer, the investigations we carry out will establish, for example, the full extent of the property and that the seller is the true owner. We will undertake a thorough investigation of all relevant areas and we will always be on hand to provide support at each stage of the purchasing process. We strongly believe that personal service is vital and ensure that our clients have one point of contact throughout the purchase process. That person will be familiar with the matter and can deal with queries as and when they arise, providing practical advice and guidance.
