Leasehold Sales and Purchases

Selling or buying a leasehold property involves additional legal work before exchange and completion. Our specialist team can guide you through this process, with all the advice you will need.

Shared Ownership Sales and Purchases

Shared Ownership gives first-time buyers and those that do not currently own a home the opportunity to purchase a share in a new build or resales property. The purchaser pays a mortgage on the share they own and pays rent to a housing association on the remaining share. These can sometimes be complex and our team of conveyancing experts have a wealth of expertise dealing with these transactions.

Auction Sales and Purchases

As a buyer at Auction you need to be aware that you will be bound by the Contract you sign in the Auction room. Our conveyancing team in our Sutton Coldfield, Walsall and Cannock offices, can guide you through all the processes and requirements of buying and selling property at auction.

Review of Auction Packs

We act for many property investors and our team have experience in advising clients who wish to have an Auction Pack reviewed prior to making an offer at Auction.

An auction pack will provide a prospective buyer with the information they require to enable them to enter a legal binding agreement with the seller.

Great care is needed in this type of transaction to understand what the Auctioneer needs and how Auctioneers work.

Right to Buy Purchases

The Right to Buy Scheme is a great way to get onto the property ladder and own the home you and your family are already settled into.

Right to Buy law can be quite complicated so it is important you speak with an experienced property solicitor or conveyancer at the earliest opportunity. Our team can explain all your options and ensure all aspects of your transaction are covered.

New build purchases can be complex and require specialist knowledge of the sector. Our team work collaboratively with many property developers. They are experienced in this type of work and provide a comprehensive service on all types of new build properties, working to timescales to exchange Contracts that are usually set out at the outset of the transaction by the builders.


Re-mortgaging can be an intricate process filled with paperwork and homeowners often need professional advice. Whether you want to renegotiate with your current lender or change the mortgage on a property, contact us for specialist legal guidance.

Our team will ensure that the necessary legal checks are carried out and will deal with the repayment of your existing mortgage. They recognise that most people who are re-mortgaging wish to complete the process as quickly as possible and will endeavour to provide a speedy yet professional service to ensure that you receive your re-mortgage funds as quickly as possible and with the minimum of fuss.

Title Defects

A title defect is a situation in which there may be a legitimate, contrary claim to the true ownership of the property. A title defect can prevent the sale of a property.

Our team of conveyancing experts can help remedy title defects before the seller completes the sale of their property to a buyer.

Lease Extensions

As a leaseholder, extending your lease places you in a stronger position. It makes the property more valuable and if you are e looking to sell, it makes the property more appealing to potential buyers.

If you wish to extend and amend a lease agreement, our team can draw up lease extensions and ensure that the terms between the two parties are fair and transparent.

Boundary Queries

When buying a home or property, any question of a disputed boundary between the property being purchased and its neighbours is an important issue which should be resolved before the contract is signed.

Our residential conveyancers in our Cannock, Walsall, and Sutton Coldfield offices can support you in resolving any queries and avoiding any disputes.

First Registrations

If you own property that is unregistered with HM Land Registry, then our conveyancing team can help you with ‘first registrations’. Registering it with a title will have a number of benefits and will provide you with stronger protection as a property owner.
