Buying & Selling a House

Buying & selling a house

Whether you are moving locally in Bedfordshire, or further afield, when you decide to put your house on the market (or, as a first time buyer, you have found your first home), please make sure you contact us.

We will provide a fixed fee estimate, with no hidden charges, and, if you decide to instruct us, we can proceed with the initial stages of the buying/selling process immediately. Much of the transaction can be handled by post, email or telephone. However, it is necessary on most occasions for clients to visit our office at least once to deal with any identification requirements.

We will undertake all the legal work to achieve an early exchange of contracts and complete your transaction. Our local knowledge and contacts can be very helpful. If difficulties arise, we will work with you to resolve them to keep your transaction on schedule.

We deal with the following transactions:

Buying / Selling your home

Freehold / Leasehold residential property

Buy to Let

Transfers of Equity



We do not pay referral fees. Any recommendations from Estate Agents, Mortgage Brokers, Banks, friends or relatives, we believe are given because of our quality of service.

We are part of the Conveyancing Quality Scheme CQS

The Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS)

The Conveyancing Quality Scheme is awarded to practices that have achieved the recognised quality standard for residential conveyancing. It is based upon the integrity of the conveyancing staff, the firm’s adherence to good practice management standards and efficient conveyancing procedures through the scheme protocol.
