We can help with your conveyancing as we provide a premium conveyancing service at competitive prices.
For the majority of conveyancing transactions we provide a FIXED FEE CONVEYANCING QUOTATION so you know definitely what everything will cost at the outset and we take you through the process so you know what to expect and when.
We have built our reputation on quality and individual service and as a result a significant proportion of our work in this area comes from recommendations and repeat business or from the network of close professional contacts we have developed over time. Your estate agent may recommend you use us.
When choosing a conveyancing specialist the main aim is to choose a solicitor you can work with to get the job done quickly, efficiently and cost effectively. We do your conveyancing work ourselves, don’t give it to any third parties to do and we hold the Law Society Conveyancing Quality Mark which is assessed every year.
Our residential property team provides legal advice and services for:
- Residential conveyancing (purchase and sale)
- Buy to let
- Equity Release
- Tenancy and lease arrangements
Before we begin work, we will provide you with an estimate of costs, as well as discussing the timetable to completion for your transaction. We like to ensure that the estimate we give to our clients includes all predicted costs, including searches and other third-party fees. Should any additional costs arise during the transaction, we will give you plenty of warning and discuss these with you as necessary so you understand why they have arisen.
We like to keep our clients fully informed throughout their transactions. Many of our clients prefer to rely primarily on telephone and email to communicate and progress their transactions and if you are living some distance away this may be the only way we can carry out your instructions.
However, clients are always welcome to visit our offices to meet the Solicitor managing their case. This offers a good opportunity to make personal contact, and to discuss the schedule and process in more detail. If you are able to visit our offices it gives us the opportunity to check your documents with you and obtain signatures rather than waiting for posted documents and this helps us to complete transactions efficiently and save time.
Anti-Money Laundering Procedures
If you are conducting a property transaction anywhere in the United Kingdom you (and any funders of the transaction) must be able to prove ownership, proof of identity, residence and source of funds.
Requesting a quotation
We require information about your transaction to be able to provide a correct quotation.
Please feel confident in sharing with us the information we request as we are not a call-centre and there will be no irritating follow up sales calls or disclosure of your details to third parties.
Your personal details are required so we can make a record of the quote provided and honour it should you decide to instruct us.
Please call us on 0191 4974630 or 0191 4555361 to request a quotation or you can complete the online form that you will find at the foot this page.
CQS has established itself as the quality mark of the home-buying sector and enables consumers to identify practices that provide a quality residential conveyancing service. With so many different conveyancing service providers out there CQS helps home-buyers and sellers seek out those that can provide a safe and efficient level of service.”
Buying and selling a home can be a stressful time. Choosing a solicitor to help in that process just got easier. By looking for a CQS firm like Hannays Solicitors and Advocates, who have now been members of the Scheme for three years, the public can seek out a firm that has proved its commitment to quality.
The overall beneficiaries will be clients who will receive a reliable, efficient service as recognised by the CQS standard.
The scheme requires practices to undergo a strict assessment, compulsory training, self-reporting, random audits and annual reviews in order to maintain CQS status. It is open only to members of the Law Society who meet the demanding standards set by the Scheme and has the support of the Council of Mortgage Lenders, the Building Societies Association, Legal Ombudsman and the Association of British Insurers.
