Should you not have instructed a solicitor we are able to assist you in providing recommendations. We have a list of reliable solicitors who we often use and feel confident in recommending to our clients.

Once a sale has been agreed we will send out a ‘Memorandum of Sale’ to the buyers and the sellers solicitors instructing them to begin the conveyancing process. During the sales process our friendly and proactive staff will ‘hold your hand’ so to speak. We will have constant communication with both parties’ solicitors and are here to drive the negotiation and buying process forward and will keep you updated and informed throughout.
