Hello my name's Michelle Thompson and I'm part of the residential property team here at Forbes Solicitors.

We can provide you with a fixed fee, no obligation quote with no hidden extras. We're a team of residential property experts and we can arrange to see you at any of our offices. At the outset if you choose to instruct us you'll find we don't operate a call center approach with our clients, we prefer to offer you a personal and friendly service that's tailored to suit you.

We appreciate that moving house can be a really stressful time so you will be given our direct contact details so we can be on hand to guide you through both the legal and practical consequences of moving house.

So if you'd like any further information you can complete our online enquiry form or you can call myself or any member of the team, all our contact details are on the website.

As well as being an important milestone in a person's life, buying and selling a house can be a stressful time. Our aim is to eliminate the stress and ensure that everything goes as smoothly as possible for you. It's likely you'll need to find a lawyer who will take care of the conveyancing side of things, which ensures that the house legally moves from seller to buyer.

Our team of specialist solicitors and conveyancing lawyers will guide you through the process giving you practical legal advice and keeping you informed of developments. We use the latest conveyancing software, which means you will receive a speedy service with the personal touch that many cheap conveyancing services fail to deliver.

Forbes Conveyancing Quality of Service

The consequences of missing any detail, when buying, selling or remortgaging a property, could prove to be a costly mistake. That is why it is essential to entrust a law firm which does not cut corners and can offer you a comprehensive service. At Forbes Solicitors we offer fixed price conveyancing fees and can take care of every aspect relating to your home.

Our competitors may offer cheaper conveyancing fees but don't necessarily provide the same level of professional service and the "peace of mind" that Forbes can deliver. For example, we do not charge additional conveyancing fees if you are getting a mortgage, if the property is a leasehold house, for completing the stamp duty forms or for making calls to mobiles. We are also a member of the Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) which ensures a standard of excellence when we deal with both buyers and sellers.
