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. As would be expected, conveyancing services from Holmes & Hills Solicitors include professional advice and regular updates throughout the process.

A higher rate of successful completions

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.

Those using Holmes & Hills' conveyancing services benefit from 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 six offices in Marks Tey, Colchester; 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.
