Buying a house

Efficient, dependable and reliable legal and conveyancing services coupled with expert advice when you are buying a house, flat or other property.

For most of us buying a house or a flat is the single biggest financial outlay we'll ever make, so  it's no wonder that the process is often described as being one of the most stressful things in life – up there with marriage, childbirth, redundancy and bereavement according to some studies.

Smoothing the path

We make sure we do everything possible to minimise that stress and anxiety and protect your best interests throughout the transaction.  You'll be allocated your own individual case handler and supervising conveyancer responsible for progressing your purchase as quickly as possible and proactively keeping you advised of progress at all times.

Personal and efficient conveyancing service

We can accept your instructions for buying a property over the phone, online or through the post so you don't need to suffer the inconvenience of taking time out to come and see us.  Although we provide national coverage and help hundreds of people to buy houses across England, Wales and Scotland every month, our service is intensely personal and delivered using the latest modern communications technologies so we're available and on-hand when you need us.

We have also produced a comprehensive guide to conveyancing outlining the process of buying a house from start to finish, as well as what we hope is a useful buying a house infographic.

Transparent pricing

Whether you're looking to buy a mansion or a studio flat, you'll want to keep your costs to a minimum and within a fixed budget.  We help you achieve this by providing you with a fixed fee quote up front and completely transparent pricing so there are no hidden extras or nasty surprises.

No move – no fee

In the unfortunate event that your transaction does fall through for whatever reason, we may have to pass on any disbursement costs incurred but we won't charge you a penny in fees.  All that we ask is that you use us next time round for your next house purchase or sale.

Keeping you informed

We understand that when buying a house you'll want to know what's happening.  You need reliable information and progress reports so you can make all the other arrangements necessary for moving home.  That's why we provide all our clients with proactive calls, email updates and letters advising of progress.  And if that's not enough, you can track your move online 24/7 to see how things are going.

Delivering confidence

We aim for certainty in your house purchase which is why we focus on achieving exchange of contracts as quickly as possible.  Under England and Wales property law, until contracts are exchanged either party can change their minds and the whole deal can fall through.  It's only when you've exchanged contracts that you are fully protected and can be confident of moving into your new home.  That's the outcome we aim for.

Market-leading conveyancing solicitors

We pride ourselves in delivering the best house buying legal services in the business.  Don't just take our word for that.   At the prestigious 2008 National Customer Service Awards our buying a house service was highly commended by judges and we were the highest rated law firm. In addition we are the largest firm of conveyancing solicitors to be accredited under the Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme.
