The legal term that describes the transfer of the legal title from one party (the seller) to another party (the purchaser) is known as conveyancing. We provide advice on all areas of conveyancing from first time buyer purchases, refinancing, selling, letting to commercial investor arrangements. For first time buyers we offer an excellent value for money service with a special reduction to take into account tight budgets.
