Conveyancing Solicitors

Expert knowledge and attention to detail

At Emery Johnson Astills we understand that buying or selling a home, remortgaging or even leasing commercial premises can be stressful, with the need to get all the details right, often in a time-frame.

The property law team at Emery Johnson Astills appreciate that you have countless practical considerations including pressing timescales and it might be easy to view conveyancing as a simple and straightforward exercise.

However, property is a significant long-term investment and, with so much at stake, expert specialist conveyancing can make the difference between a safe transaction or a long term liability.

That’s why Emery Johnson Astills’ conveyancing solicitors approach every transaction as if it were their own. With extensive experience, we’ve seen most contractual pitfalls and can explain the finer details of complex clauses to ensure that you know exactly what is or should be included or be excluded from your property contract and what your obligations might be. 

We aim to make the process clear and as hassle and stress free as possible.  In most cases we can give a clear indication of costs and often a fixed fee so there are no hidden surprises along the way.  This allows you to budget for your new property and focus on shopping for that new sofa or other soft furnishings.

Emery Johnson Astills are proud to be a member of the Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS), awarded by The Law Society.
