Our experienced team can help current leaseholders negotiate and complete the purchase of their property’s freehold, either individually or as a group. Alternatively, we can help you extend the length of your leasehold term, adding value to your home or future-proofing your investment.
We can help if you are interested in joint-ownership of a property – our experts are well-versed in specialist co-ownership conveyancing and liaising with multiple lenders, and experienced in drawing up deeds that will protect your interests, a declaration of trust, for example, to establish and clarify each co-owner’s legal and financial responsibilities.

We just wanted to take the time as well to say a personal thanks to the pair of you for your excellent service and support during our move. We had used you before but, like many people, we were tempted to go this time with one of the low cost on line conveyancing quotes we received. Had we done so we are now sure we would have regretted it as we feel that the exemplary service we got from yourselves was true value for money. In particular, towards the end of the process when we had to deal with a very demanding buyer for our house we felt very well supported by you not just in the technical elements of your service but also in the responsiveness and personal support we received. We have heard numerous stories from friends and colleagues of how they have struggled with conveyancing services during property transactions and have enjoyed telling people what a positive experience we had with George Ide.Jeremy & Nicky Mills
Nick, Sally and Maddie were excellent throughout the whole process. We are very happy with the service they provided.Nichola Swan and Graham Cropley
Thank you so much Nicholas for the brilliant service you have given is throughout the selling and buying of our properties. You, and Maddie, have been exceptional.Mr and Mrs Holder
Nick was always very quick to respond to any queries and made the whole process a lot less stressful, especially as it was my first property purchase. Guidance documentation was very helpful too. I can’t fault the service.Teresa Durrant
It is hard to improve on an existing, excellent service and I have no suggestions to make. I will definitely recommend you and would use your services again.Mr. Philip Oliver
“Just a very quick, but nonetheless very sincere and heart-felt thanks on behalf of J and myself for your highly professional and sympathetic help in the house sale/purchase saga – you certainly saved our respective sanities on several occasions when your wise words proved to be the right course of action.”
Maddie was always calm, efficient and prompt in her responses, for which I am very grateful.Mrs Marilyn Young
An outstanding week – thanks for the speed and efficiency on the two deals you’ve acted on. I just wish all solicitors were as proactive as you.
It doesn’t get much better than this.
You have been a pleasure to deal with and have been so competent, patient, organised and professional. I still cannot believe how stress-free the whole procedure was with you. In stark contrast, I completed today on my house in N Ireland after five (!) months of legal wrangling. I am delighted with the house and, although still surrounded by packing boxes, am making progress. Once again. Thank you for all you did. Kind regards,Elaine Young
I would like to take the opportunity to thank you and your team for your friendly and efficient manner when carrying out the conveyancing of my late Grandmothers property. Other than the delays caused by our buyers it went very smoothly and I am grateful to you for pushing it through so quickly once their issues had been resolved and have pleasure to attach our client satisfaction questionnaire. Kind regardsJon Sargent
Just a note to thank you both very much for your help during the sale of Betty’s apartment. I was pretty stressed about it all, especially after the first sale fell through. But your kindness and efficient follow-up on everything really helped me. I have total confidence in your services and would not hesitate to work with you again. Very best wishes.Sandy
Nick was at the very top of his game (again). If there is a better lawyer out there, I’ve yet to meet him. A giant amongst men. Respect.Pete Cunningham
