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.

    Extremely efficient. Corresponding by email worked well. In our limited experience, we consider the cost to be totally acceptable. In conclusion, we would like to thank Robert and his team for expediting our sale and purchase. Needless to say, should we require any legal assistance in the future, we would not hesitate to contact you.

    Thanks for everything!  We have both been very happy with the way that things have been dealt with from the start. From start to completion, we have had the very best of legal help.

    Although I haven't met Tanya face to face due to covid, I felt I knew her.  She was very helpful and efficient, thank you!


    From the start it was evident that we had been very lucky to be recommended Jenny. She is extremely efficient, proactive, thorough and inspires confidence in the client. Unlike other solicitors we have used, it is refreshing that phone calls are immediately picked up, and responded to. Her team was well briefed and knowledgeable of our situaation.  We would highly recommend, and will certainly use Porter Dodson again.

    We have purchased and sold many properties over the last 35 years. Michelle is by far the best legal advisor I have ever dealt with. She was professional, prompt, knowledgeable, proactive and provided a seamless service with her team during a trickey sale and purchase. Many thanks, we really appreciate it!
