Property - Residential

As one of the first practices in the West Midlands to receive the Law Society Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) award, our understanding of the property market is based on years of hands-on experience.

We appreciate that a residential conveyancing transaction can seem a daunting, complex and expensive undertaking.  Our aim is to fully advise you and reassure you throughout the process with a personal service, tailored to meet your requirements and our overall focus is to make buying or selling a home as clear, simple and straightforward as possible for you.

A residential conveyancing expert will always be available for you to talk to and you will be kept fully up to date with the progress of your transaction.  That person will take time to get to know your situation so that they can plan ahead and deal with queries as and when they arise, providing expert, practical advice and guidance.

Our conveyancing team acts for individuals, partnerships, trusts, companies, overseas investors and financial institutions. Whether you are buying a house for the first time, looking to remortgage your existing property or buying a residential investment property, we understand that every transaction brings its own challenges and we do all we can to support our clients.

We have developed strong relationships with other key professionals including local estate agents, surveyors and mortgage lenders. Working in this way ensures the transaction will be as cost effective and efficient as possible working with others within the property chain.  We can also draw on the support of the other services Higgs LLP has to offer such as wills and wealth management, tax planning and dispute resolution, including mediation. 

Let us help you with:

  • buying and selling a residential property, including property investments, new build and buy to let transactions
  • joint ownership, transfer of ownership or equity and partition of ownership, including matrimonial transfers
  • deeds of gift
  • equity release schemes
  • lease extensions
  • remortgages
