Residential Conveyancing

From instruction to completion our property team can help

Our proactive Property Team at Wannops will advise you on your transaction from start to finish. No two property sales or purchase transactions are the same, whether that be because of legal issues, lengths of chains or the cooperation between buyers, sellers or agents. Our south coast team of qualified, well-versed property experts will approach every situation individually, providing tailored advice.

Working with a Wannops Property Lawyer / How we Work

You will immediately be provided with a dedicated qualified lawyer from our property team, with whom you’ll have excellent communication and direct email and often telephone access. Once instructed, our property team will also act for your mortgage lender at no extra cost. In addition, we are panel members with most mortgage lenders, enabling us to bring the completion of your mortgage to a swift conclusion.

We’re a Law Society Conveyancing Quality Scheme member and pride ourselves on being entirely independent, meaning we don’t engage with estate agent referral schemes. Instead, we have built strong working relationships with all professionals in the residential conveyancing process.

Our Property Team can advise you on the following:

  • All Freehold and Leasehold Sales and Purchases (including new build and shared ownership)
  • Re-Mortgages
  • Transfers of Equity
  • Lease Extensions (both voluntary and statutory)
  • Equity Releases

Estimated Fees

Our estimated fees cover your sale or purchase progress from receipt of instructions to completion and all post-completion formalities, including the submission of your Stamp Duty Land Tax Return. Our fees also include acting on behalf of your mortgage lender, where applicable. All our conveyancing transactions are fixed prices with no hidden costs.

If we encounter unforeseen or unusual problems during your transaction, we will discuss this with you and may have to increase our estimate based on the hourly fee rate.

What Our Clients Say

Absolutely brilliant experience with Wannops!! Charlotte was extremely professional and supportive throughout. I was always able to communicate with her via phone or Email instantly and felt very reassured after. We had a lot of issues with our purchaser’s solicitors but Charlotte worked above and beyond in sorting this out so we could exchange and complete on time. I would also like to thank Emily for all her very hard work on exchange day it was extremely stressful and frustrating but she succeeded which was incredible. We would highly recommend Charlotte and the team at Wannops if you’re moving. Thank you so much.

I have used Wannops LLP before. Karen Livesley is amazing. Nothing too much trouble, always on the end of the phone. If not her then one of her team. I would not go anywhere else. Thank you for your help.

Thank you for such an excellent smooth sale and purchase. Very professional and helpful throughout.

Emily and her team demonstrate how a conveyancing transaction can be run cost-effectively and minimise delays. Thank you, Emily, for another excellent transaction for me.

Third Time I have used Wannops. Will continue to do so.

A thoroughly professional service that installs confidence in the client that the work in hand is more than competently marshalled.

Emily was outstanding, efficient, proactive and very helpful. Her emails were clear, succinct and straight to the point. Vicky & Charlotte were very supportive as well.

Emily & Eve always gave compassionate, clear help and advice. A wonderful caring team.

Both Emily and Charlotte were friendly, efficient and always helpful. We always felt that we were in excellent hands and want to thank them both for their help and advice throughout the transaction.

Very satisfied that we were listened to and kept informed. Particularly pleased when phone calls were returned so quickly.

Swift, professional service with a smile. It has been a pleasure working with you all.

My buyer’s conveyancing team were, to say the least, awkward. Laura Hobday’s sound advice and negotiating skills, together with the support of Yasmin and Vanessa, achieved the sale of my house. Thank you.

I would like to reiterate my sincere thanks to Laura Hobday for her expertise and assistance during our conveyancing. As always, it has been a pleasure working with you.

I would recommend Wannops 100%. I deal with Emily Lippett, and she is fantastic.
