We will guide you through the legal aspects of moving house and help you understand your rights and liabilities, making sure that the transaction runs as smoothly as possible. We also offer no-move-no fee insurance which protects you from legal costs if the transaction falls through.

You will be given the direct contact details of the person handling your case and we will keep you informed about the progress of your case every step of the way.

We can also help you to put in place arrangements for the future, such as a co-habitation agreement or will, because everyone needs the peace of mind that comes from knowing your investment is protected, no matter what the future brings.
