Reduce the risk of your transaction falling-through by benefiting from a 20% higher rate of success

Those using Holmes & Hills' conveyancing services benefit from a materially higher successful completion rate compared to the national average. Your transaction has an increased chance of successfully completing when Holmes & Hills is advising and representing you in your property transaction.

Why do property transactions fall-through?

Your transaction might fall-through for a number of reasons, most of them outside of your control.

These include:

  • your buyer finding another property;
  • being unable to secure their mortgage;
  • or a change in their circumstances which means they can no longer proceed with the purchase.

Benefit from fixed fee packages

As well as an increased chance of your transaction successfully completing, Holmes & Hills provides fixed-fee residential conveyancing quotes with no hidden charges. When you obtain conveyancing quotations from other law firms you may find charges for completing Stamp Duty Land Tax forms, dealing with lenders and leasehold fees.
