Residential conveyancing solicitors
The administrative and legal process
Conveyancing is essentially the entire administrative and legal process necessary for the ownership of a property to transfer from one person to another.
When you decide to buy or sell a property, transfer equity or apply for a re-mortgage, you need expert solicitors to take care of the paperwork and protect you throughout the process. Our conveyancing solicitors will be by your side every step of the way, no matter what you need.
We understand that buying or selling property can be stressful and complicated. That’s why we take great care to guide you through the entire administrative and legal process as clearly and easily as we can.
We believe in transparency, and will be clear from the start about exactly what fees will be charged and what guidance you can expect.

Sale and purchase
Transfer of equity
As a property owner, you may wish to give or sell part of your property to a spouse or child as your life changes. You may also wish to remove someone from ownership of the property, for instance if you separate from your partner.
A transfer of equity is also known as a transfer of title and occurs when someone is added or removed from the title deeds of a property. It is not an overly complex process, but it does require the assistance of a solicitor to make sure everything goes smoothly.
Our conveyancing solicitors generally spend most of their time with sale and purchase processes, which start with ‘searches’. Searches are the enquiries made to local authorities and utility companies to check the property is registered to the seller. Searches are also a chance to map out any potential risks to the value of the property in the future.
Searches expose things like planning permissions for future projects close to the property, the proximity of public sewer pipes and environmental factors likes contaminated land and flood risks.
The exact searches you need depend on the property and location.
Many searches are optional, so you may decide not to carry out all of them.
We always recommend that you instruct your solicitor to carry out every available search that’s relevant to you. Searches give you great insight into any threats to the value of your property.
The local council could be planning on introducing new extra-large billboards in your street or may have given planning permission to businesses that could harm the area’s image. If so, you would want to know that now, not after you’ve bought the property.
Why searches are so important
If a factory, car garage or betting hall was going to be built down the street, it could radically affect the appeal of your property to you. External factors outside of your control can cause serious harm to its future. Costs involved – such as legal action or moving again – are far greater than the small charge of a search.
Your solicitor will be able to give you a clear understanding of the type of searches you should include and what risks you would be taking if you don’t.
