We’re all about ensuring you feel right at home

    Whether you’re buying or selling a home or both, our expertise extends beyond the legal to making your move as smooth as possible.

    Residential property law

    Moving home can be one of the most stressful experiences in our lives. Whether you are a first time buyer or have done this many times before, the excitement we all experience is coupled with anxiety and worry.

    Our experienced Residential Property Law Team will provide you with clear, helpful advice to guide you through this process and make matters as clear and straightforward as possible, whilst doing all we can to meet your anticipated timescale.


    Our property lawyers can provide comprehensive advice and assist you throughout your sale and/or purchase of a property or land. We can also deal with the requirements of any remortgage, equity release or auction. We are experienced in liaising with your mortgage lender, estate agents and other third parties to ensure your transaction is brought to a smooth and efficient conclusion.

    We have produced a diagram to show the process of buying and selling a house from both sides of the transaction (with typical timescales). You can find out more on the Legal Choices website. We also have our own booklet explaining the process, which we send to all new clients before starting work.

    Excellent service, as always, from the staff at Porter Dodson. Claire was always courteous, efficient, cheerful and supportive throughout.

    Amazing work from Claire and her team to get what ended up being quite a tricky move (sale & purchase) through to completion. We were kept updated at all times and appreciated the availability and approachable, professional communication. Thank you.

    Excellent service from Claire and her team. Always there if we had a question. Good value compared to estate agent's fees!


    Having been recommended to go to Porter Dodson, I can now see why and your practice would be my 'go to' solicitor of choice in the future. I was very impressed by Zara and was only sad that I couldn't use her for my purchase as the company were acting for the vendor. Obviously great minds think alike!


    Always a good service. I trust Jennifer implicitly to ensure all necessary information is received and checked before progression to exchange. I have used other law firms but always regretted not choosing Porter Dodson and wouldn't use anyone else in the future for conveyancing.
