Conveyancing & Property Law
Purchasing, selling, mortgaging or leasing residential or commercial property is an important step in anyone's life and it is one of the strengths of our law practice. Conveyancing, the process of transferring the ownership of the title to a property from one party to another, is complicated and requires the services of a specialist solicitor.
