Buying and selling property is neither as complicated as some lawyers make out, or as simple as others would have you believe. I see our role as that of a project manager, explaining the process and highlighting the difficulties that may arise. We’ll respond quickly to your enquiries and deal with any developments which need prompt action or will affect the timing of your house move. You need advice, answers and support and you want us to act as quickly as possible.
I believe we do.
House-buying may be a common activity, but it can leave you frustrated when things don’t go to plan. We believe that a proactive approach and constant liaison are key to success in any house sale, or purchase. By working quickly to make sure contracts are exchanged, we always give you the earliest possible date for moving, and keep you informed at each and every step of the way.

Legal Ombudsman Guidance
The Legal Ombudsman has recently published guidance for buyers. Whilst this is intended for first time buyers we think it includes useful guidance for all prospective purchasers, whether a first time buyer or not. Please click on the link below to read the guidance. If you have any queries about this, please do not hesitate to contact us.
