What our clients say

I was very pleased with the courtesy of the ladies who attended to my requests and particularly so at the time when I had my accident – they were extremely helpful.

Paul James' support has been invaluable in effectively progressing key contractual requirements. His knowledge and expertise in contract and procurement matters is exceptional. Would not hesitate to engage Paul's services again in future should the requirement and opportunity arise.” (dated March 2017).

The reason I used Redkite is that most solicitors don’t have the area of expertise that I required.

Redkite have provided assistance through several particularly difficult issues. Their advice has been professional, thorough and specifically tailoured to the needs of our business. The staff are approachable, knowledgeable and realistic in the advice they provide.

Redkite were recommended to me and I would do the same, fantastic service.

I have to say that everyone I have come into contact with from the receptionists to the solicitors have always been excellent. The advice I have been given formally and informally has always been clear and concise which is always a weight off your mind when you are dealing with the affairs of your loved ones.

Conveyancing FAQ

What is conveyancing?

A

Purchasing your first property can be a daunting experience without the aid of a property lawyer to guide you through the entire conveyancing process. However, what exactly does conveyancing mean?

Conveyancing is the procedure for transferring the ownership or legal title of property or land from one person to another. Respective solicitors will take care of the conveyancing process for both the buyer and seller. Stages of this procedure typically differ depending on whether you’re a seller or a buyer. Both sides must assess others’ details carefully to make sure it’s legal and comprehensive before a contract can be exchanged and drawn up.

During your first appointment with one of our friendly, qualified conveyancing team, we’ll lay out what work requires to be carried out, as well as let you know exactly what we need from you to move forward with the transaction.

How long will the conveyancing process take?

A

It’s impossible to be particular as no two transactions are the same. On average, we will take ten to fifteen weeks; however, it depends on whether there is a chain of a transaction and how swiftly finances are arranged.

The conveyancing procedure is more complicated than most assume and usually involves several third parties. Our solicitors are highly experienced in the area of law, and we know how to perfectly deal with problems before they become incredibly harmful to the transaction.
