Moving Home

Psychologists tell us moving house is one of life’s most stressful experiences.

Our highly skilled property lawyers offer you a complete legal service to ensure everything runs smoothly. At each stage you will be kept up-to-date with the progress of your transaction, leaving you free to get on with your life.

At the outset of each matter, we shall provide you with an estimate of our fees relating to your particular transaction. These will be based on a number of factors relating to your individual transaction which reflect in particular the amount of work we anticipate as necessary and the value of the transaction.

However, please note that we reserve the right to amend that estimate to take into account any unforeseen issues we identify as the case proceeds (although, in practice, this happens in less than 1% of our cases). It is open to you to decide when provided with a revised estimate whether to ask us to stop working for you at that point, whereupon you are only responsible for the costs to that time, or to agree the new estimate. You will not be charged in excess of any estimate, revised as appropriate, that we agree with you.

Work involved

We are happy to discuss with you the individual steps to be taken by us in a matter. However, by instructing us, you are entitled to expect that we shall deal with all the necessary legal formalities in your transaction from start to finish. In basic terms, this involves us identifying precisely the property you are dealing with; what matters such as rights and obligations attach to it; drawing up the necessary documents to be approved by you to reflect this; and then acting for you in the contractual requirements to bring the transaction to the required conclusion.

We are occasionally asked to deal with matters outside the legal formalities (eg chasing up other parties / their solicitors to proceed, putting your non legal queries to the other side, liaising with third parties on your behalf and dealing with post completion concerns). As part of the overall experience we offer our clients, we may be able to do so without charge. However, where we believe this may detract from the service we can offer you or our other clients, we reserve the right to limit our work to the legal formalities and / or only proceed if you agree to meet our additional costs involved.

We can offer help with any legal aspect of your transaction including:


  • Buying or selling your home
  • Buying or selling investment property
  • Tenancy agreements
  • Remortgages
  • Transfers of equity
  • Equity release plans
  • Deed of gift
  • Planning issues
  • Lease extensions
