We aim to offer our clients a professional and personalised service, providing legal expertise which is both tailored to the individual and competitively priced. We place a strong emphasis on high quality customer service, focusing in particular on speed of transaction and quality of information.

We specialise in dealing with mid to high-value residential conveyancing transactions including the sale and purchase of estates. Typically the properties that we deal with are in Hampshire, Surrey and London.

Residential development
We deal with the acquisition of sites usually for residential use and the subsequent plot sales. We advise on option agreements and conditional sale and purchase contracts. Typically our clients are smaller-scale developers who enjoy the personal attention that they receive from us.

Commercial property/conveyancing
We deal with the sale and purchase of freehold and leasehold commercial buildings and offices.

Landlord and tenant
We deal with commercial tenancies including the grant, renewal and termination of leases, licences and related matters. Contentious matters are dealt with by our litigation department.
