About Us

Our firm was established in September 2009 and our focus has always been on providing an excellent service that ensures your interests are protected.

Buying and selling a property is a major undertaking and, for most of us, a big life event – so make sure you instruct a conveyancing firm that suits you - at Specialist Property Lawyers you will have a dedicated lawyer acting for you, throughout the transaction, supported by a support team that you will get to know from the moment you instruct us. You will be a person, not just a case number and you will be able to speak the same people every time you contact us.

We encourage you to visit our office – meet the team and put faces to our names and we like to do the same with you.

We aim to meet you face-to-face before an exchange of contracts to explain any complexities but also to make sure you are happy to proceed with the transaction.

Don’t take our word for it… with a stated focus of providing a conveyancing service that incorporates excellent customer service we are delighted to say that since 2009 we have built a reputation for just that. The result is that we have an increasing number of clients that have used our services before or that have been recommended by friends, family and colleagues.
