Residential Property

By working in partnership with clients, estate agents and mortgage brokers our residential property lawyers ensure a smooth transaction whilst protecting your legal interests.

Your choice of property lawyer (conveyancer) will be the single biggest factor in determining how stressful the experience is for you, particularly when it comes to buying or selling. Our residential property lawyers offer expert advice and representation. We provide fixed-fee conveyancing quotes with absolutely no hidden charges, covered by our No Sale, No Fee Promise as standard. As would be expected, conveyancing services from Holmes & Hills include professional advice and regular updates throughout the process.

No Sale, No Fee Promise

When you use Holmes & Hills Solicitors for your conveyancing (sale, purchase or sale and purchase), your transaction/s will be protected by our No Sale, No Fee Promise as standard*. This means, should your transaction fall-through, likely to be for some reason outside of your control, you will not pay any of Holmes & Hills' legal fee. The only costs you will incur will be any disbursements already paid.

Rightmove** and others estimate that 30% of property transactions fall-through on average, nationally, a number far higher than many anticipate. For those unlucky ones that experience this, the costs can be significant.

Home-movers not protected by a No Sale, No Fee Promise can find themselves paying anything from 50% to almost 100% of the conveyancing fee originally quoted to them by their conveyancing lawyer in the event their transaction falls-through, only to have to pay this fee again when they find another buyer or another property to buy themselves.

A higher rate of successful completions

As well as benefiting from a No Sale, No Fee Promise as standard, those using Holmes & Hills conveyancing services also benefit from a materially higher successful completion rate compared to the national average for residential conveyancing lawyers. Your transaction has an increased chance of successfully completing when Holmes & Hills is advising and representing you.

From our five offices in Braintree, Sudbury, Halstead, Tiptree and Coggeshall we advise thousands of people across Essex and Suffolk every year in relation to conveyancing and other residential property related matters.
