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.

    A very positive experience. Extremely helpful and professional service throughout. Cannot recommend highly enough.


    Very impressed with the speed and thoroughness of Porter Dodson in progressing the purchase of our flat and sale of our house. Much faster than is generally thought to be the case.

    Claire Keating has been so incredibly supportive of us, making every step of the process of selling my 80 year old mother's house as smooth and pain-free as possible. The conveyance dealing with the purchase was obstructive to say the very least, making Claire's work nearly impossible at times, hence the 7 month process to completion. Claire's professionalism was exemplary and she maintained such a warm friendly and patient approach, always making everything understandable and accessible. Claire's efforts in completing the sale .are nothing short of a miracle. For us, Claire is simply wonderful!

    Excellent service! Tanya did a first-rate job in selling my mother's house. Despite the challenges of COVID, she was always responsive, helpful and diligent. We plan to move any future business to Porter Dodson as a result.
