Looking for expert legal advice?

Leading Conveyancing Solicitors in Reading, Henley-on-Thames & Wokingham

Our highly experienced team of solicitors and conveyancers handles freehold and leasehold property sales and purchases of all sizes and levels of complexity, from auctioned properties to high-rise apartments, buy to let investments to executive family homes, new builds to listed buildings. Whether you are a first-time buyer, a growing family or a property investor, going through a divorce or dealing with a probate sale, climbing the property ladder or downsizing, we are here to help.

The saying “you get what you pay for” has never been truer than in the case of conveyancing and choosing a solicitor or conveyancer can sometimes feel like a difficult and daunting decision.

We never pay referral fees to estate agents or other parties, so if we are recommended to you, it is because that professional adviser or individual believes that we will provide an excellent service and value for money.

Choosing a Conveyancing Solicitor

Your solicitor or conveyancer is there to ensure that, as a seller or buyer, you and the other parties meet all of the required legal obligations and your rights and interests are protected during this transaction. Failing to identify any issues or risks may leave you exposed, financially and otherwise, immediately or in the future.

At first glance some conveyancing quotes may appear cheaper than they actually are , with hidden or additional fees added at a later date. Be comfortable that you are comparing like for like when making a fi nal decision, and that any quote includes a comprehensive breakdown of both fees (the amount charged by the conveyancer or solicitor for their services) and disbursements (costs paid on your behalf, including property search fees, registry fees and Stamp Duty (SDLT)).

First impressions can never be repeated. It is important that you can speak to an experienced solicitor or conveyancer when obtaining an estimate and that this is accurate, easy to understand and received promptly. How well things are handled at this early stage is likely to reflect the level of service and the overall experience that you can expect throughout your move, and this may help you to decide whether you feel that you would be in safe hands.

When contacting our team, you will receive a clear and detailed quote, allowing you to review and understand our fees and any associated costs. We will of course be happy to discuss and explain the quote provided and the conveyancing process that follows if needed.

You will continue to enjoy direct contact with the dedicated member of our team dealing with your file on a day-to-day basis and they will keep you informed or answer questions you may have at every stage. This approach will also help to ensure that contracts are ready early to allow you time to carefully review things and ask any questions.
