Our Residential Conveyancing Department is particularly successful and we expect it to continue to grow and develop its combination of personal contact and use of technology, even in the current slow property market.

The way in which conveyancing services are provided to buyers and sellers continues to change quickly.  Now, many people conduct their preliminary search for properties online rather than through estate agentsí windows.

Sites such as are much in demand.  They in turn refer you to local agent members of the scheme.  A combination of modern technology and local knowledge/expertise works well.

We believe that our combination of technology and personal approach works well too, not only for our local clients but for clients who are out of Cornwall or even overseas, who need our help.

We will see you to discuss your home move without any commitment by you before you instruct us.  We particularly recommend that you contact us before putting your house on the market or making an offer for another house, or instructing a distant, large-volume Conveyancer recommended by an Estate Agent.

We place particular emphasis on keeping you informed by taking calls quickly and not making you listen to long recorded messages.  If the person handling your matter is not available he or she will also return your call as quickly as practicable. We also enable you to move on the date you choose rather than that which is most convenient to us.

We have good links with local estate agents in the West Cornwall area and you can approach them for their view on the service we provide.

We are not cut-price but believe that we give you very good value particularly in comparison with some of the centralised Conveyancers, which may be recommended to you by national firms of Estate Agents. You'll find our friendly, personal approach highly refreshing.  You are a Person, not a File. 

While much of Conveyancing is routine, you need to know that we will be watching out for difficulties and, if they arise, helping you through them sympathetically and efficiently.

The usual stages of buying or selling a property are:

  1. The buyer and seller agree a price (usually through agents)

  2. The Sellers' Solicitors send papers to Buyers' Solicitors. Searches and enquiries are made by the Buyers' Solicitor and finance arranged for the Buyers.

  3. When everyone is ready (4-5 weeks) Contracts are Exchanged. You are then committed to your sale or purchase on an agreed date (usually 1-2 weeks later).

  4. Completion day i.e. money is paid and you actually move.
