A property team that

Whether you are buying your first house, moving in together or moving home, or selling a home, property purchases symbolise the most expensive transactions that most people will make. Therefore, our property team look to provide straightforward, cost-effective solutions so you can worry about more pressing matters – like where to put the sofa.

Property conveyancing

When looking for a property solicitor, you’re looking for a firm that emphasises great value. This is not only through price, but also through speed, quality, and efficiency.

We work with a number of estate agents, investors, property developers and banks to ensure that our processes are of the highest standards our property solicitors in Birmingham and Nottingham can provide.

Our property team in Birmingham and Nottingham works with the goal to work to your needs and ensure a smooth transaction, no matter the circumstances.

We aim to complete your property purchase within 6-8 weeks, and sales within 8-12 weeks. This can be slowed down if you are part of a chain, or if you are getting a new or amended mortgage.

As a family-focused law firm, we understand the need to be fast, provide great value, and keep a clear line of communication with you in regards to your property transaction, so that everyone is kept informed and finances and living arrangements are planned as best possible.

Property law matters are worked on and supervised by a qualified solicitor (LPC) with 11 years’ experience practising property law, having worked on over 500 property conveyancing matters in that time. Work is also undertaken with the support of a legal executive (LLB, currently undertaking LPC) with over 2 years experience.

The quote calculator will detail expected taxes, fees, and disbursements such as searches being made throughout your transaction. 

The average property transaction takes between 8-12 weeks. It can be quicker or slower, depending on the parties in the chain. For example, if you are a first time buyer, purchasing a new build property with a mortgage in principle, it could take 6 weeks. However, if you are buying a leasehold property that requires an extension of the lease, this can take significantly longer, between 3 and 5 months. In such, a situation additional charges would apply.
