Fields of Expertise

Providing professional solutions in:-

Conveyancing

Our vast experience in this field enables us to undertake and advise on all property transactions from development schemes to everyday transfers. We assist in the preparation and negotiation of sales agreements and offer our clients the service of carefully checking offers to purchase before signature, to avoid pitfalls. Remember that an offer becomes a binding agreement upon signature by the parties and is difficult to alter thereafter. We attend to the registration of mortgage bonds for a number of financial institutions as well as for private lenders.

Estates and Wills
