Residential Property

Simply put, buying or selling a house can be one of the most stressful times of your life, but it never needs to be. We specialise in taking the stress out of buying and selling property. Our responsive systemised and dedicated team are here to make this new chapter in your life a happy experience.

Sale Audit Service

If you are selling a property wouldn’t you invest a little to make sure that the property looked well, that it was nicely presented and that it was attractive for a buyer? Why not take the same approach to your legal title. So many times the excitement of finding a buyer can turn sour because a sale can fall through for unforeseen legal problems. We have developed an innovative solution to deal with this issue and for more information on this exciting service click below.

We also pride ourselves in the efficiency of our first registration service. This is the service where clients apply for title in the Land Registry based on adverse possession or squatters. We have extensive experience in these cases and have brought many to a speedy and successful conclusion.

The people are warm and there are plenty of indoor hideouts to shelter from the weather. We have acted for many US citizens in the purchase and sale of property and provide a full suite of services to include advices on, not only, legal arrangements on buying a property but also residency issues, will drafting and any other legal support you may need.
