Residential Conveyancing

Helping people with buying and selling houses and flats, remortgages and other residential property matters.

Moving home is a life-changing experience for you and your family and can be daunting, but having a good conveyancing lawyer at your side can make all the difference.

At Hancock Quins Solicitors in Watford, we make sure that you have the best residential conveyancing team at your disposal to ensure that everything proceeds as quickly and smoothly as possible.

We not only guide you through the legal steps of buying or selling a property, but take time to understand your needs. Should any unexpected issues crop up along the way, our dedicated and approachable team will be available to help you make the right decisions.

In the longer term, we can help you with other matters affecting your property interests, like transferring ownership into your sole name where you and a co-owner have decided to go your separate ways, remortgaging or applying for an extension to your lease where the property you own is leasehold.

Tony was very efficient and professional.

Mrs Hartridge

Glynis provided me with a calming rock of support over two and a half years guiding me through my divorce, contested financial arrangements and Children Act proceedings in a professional and caring way. Whilst there can never be a winner in this type of situation, Glynis helped me to manage my expectations and stay strong when it all seemed too much.

Mrs B

Ben was superb, felt very happy with our care.

Ms Ridler

The family received a professional and courteous service from Ben Jones. We were very pleased with the help and support provided and will be using the practice in the future.

Mr Gibbons

Everything was dealt with very professionally and it was a weight off my mind when you dealt with it all and I would use your services again if I needed to.

Mrs Donkin

As a widow updating my Will, I felt very relaxed and comfortable with the courtesy and professionalism of Mr Jones.
