Residential Property

Rosalynn Carter, wife of the former US President, observed, “There is nothing more important than a good, safe, secure home.”

And we agree! Transactions involving your home are some of the most personal and important you are ever likely to face.

We have an unparalleled reputation, established over more than the last three decades, as one of London’s leading residential property practices. This reputation has come from an intimate understanding of property law, coupled with a talent for communicating key aspects of it to our clients in an accessible way.

We understand that, where residential property is concerned, speed is often key to a successful transaction. We regularly deal with attended exchanges, lock-out agreements and periods of exclusivity.

Client care is at the heart of what we do, and the practical solutions we tailor to help achieve our clients’ property requirements. We keep you up-to-date with developments throughout the life cycle of your transaction, and will help you make decisions when that need arises. Our approach ensures you feel at ease throughout the conveyancing process, and that you understand what is happening and, crucially, why it is happening. Residential property transactions can be stressful, and one of our aims is to help alleviate that stress wherever possible.

At Bishop & Sewell LLP, your transaction will always be dealt with by a named individual. This allows you to have a familiar and consistent point of contact with the firm, to whom you can turn at any time the need arises.

As part of our conveyancing service, we also act on behalf of all the major building societies and lending institutions.
