A Highly Experienced Team

Vinesh Mistry and the rest of the Residential Property Team are highly experienced and deal with all aspects of residential property transactions.  Our team has over 50 year’s collective experience in dealing with all aspects of Residential Property transactions.  Each member of staff within the department has dealt with numerous transactions and our experience helps us achieve our clients’ expectations in a timely manner.   Using this experience we can give the appropriate advice and guidance at each stage of the transaction to help ensure a smooth and stress free process.

We have strong reputation in the local property market and have close links to local estate agents and mortgage brokers to help us ensure the best possible service for you.  Our client retention rate is impressive to say the least and results in us being instructed by clients all over the UK.

Whilst it is commonly accepted that moving house is a stressful event, we will do everything possible to ensure that the process runs as smoothly as possible. We provide detailed information, in straightforward terms, about exactly what is involved at each stage of the transaction.  A dedicated lawyer will look after your matter from start to finish and you will always be able to contact a member of the team by telephone or by email to deal with your queries along the way.  We also offer clients the facility to monitor their transaction online.  Our lines of communication help to co-ordinate all those concerned in a transaction and maximise the chances of a successful result.

We are accredited members of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) which provides a recognised quality standard in residential conveyancing.  We annually undergo assessment by the Law Society in order to secure our CQS accreditation, which indicates that our residential conveyancing process is reviewed each year so that we can continue to improve our standards and give you the assurance that we will provide a high professional standard together with excellent customer service.  We take pride in providing a personal yet professional service.  We conduct detailed due diligence so that clients have peace of mind and can proceed with confidence.

A significant proportion of our work comes to us from recommendations from existing clients, estate agents and mortgage brokers who have heard of or experienced first-hand our excellent client care.
