Residential Property

The process of buying or selling a house can be complicated, confusing, stressful and time-consuming. It’s highly recommended to seek legal advice and get familiar with your legal rights whenever you’re dealing with:

  • First registrations
  • Shared ownership purchases
  • Small scale developments
  • Residential property conveyancing
  • Purchase of property (freehold or leasehold)
  • Lease extensions
  • Sale of property (houses, flats)
  • All types of tenancy agreements: short term lets, bare tenancies or assured tenancies
  • Mortgages and re-mortgages
  • Gift properties and related tax implications such as
    inheritance tax
  • Divorce-related transfers of equity
  • Leasehold enfranchisement
  • Equity release schemes
  • High-value transactions
  • Planning applications


The legal transfer of a property from its owner to another party is called “conveyancing”. It comprises two major parts:

  1. Exchanging contracts (the process of passing the equitable title)
  2. Completion (the passing of the legal title).
