Residential Conveyancing Chester

Residential Conveyancing

Buying a house is for most people the largest financial transaction they will undertake; it can also be the most stressful. To help ease that stress we offer the services of highly experienced staff who can handle all types of property transactions.

We take the time and trouble to explain the process and the significance of each stage.

At an early opportunity we were accredited under the Law Society Conveyancing Quality Scheme, which reinforces our commitment to quality and service standards. We use the latest electronic services to ensure swift results and that information is conveyed clearly and jargon free.

Your case will be dealt with by a conveyancer who will be personally responsible for your file and will be available to deal with your queries. We believe ours is a personal service as opposed to the frustratingly impersonal service offered by ‘call centre conveyancers’.

Typically our fees are fixed and competitive for the quality service that we provide. Most of our business comes from repeat clients or referrals – the best recommendation possible.

Our clients include private individuals, property investors, builders and developers and we work closely with lenders, estate agents and mortgage advisers. All receive the same quality service.

    This is one solicitor I can thoroughly recommend. She has stuck by us and helped and guided us through several court appearances and complex financial matters over the last three years when we went through the most difficult and challenging times of our lives. Her knowledge and experience is second to non and is a kind and understanding person as well.


    We've dealt with many areas of law with Jolliffes of which they have always been knowledgeable, helpful, quick to respond and acted with us in mind. We continue to use them 5 years on!


    Ryan Marr was great from enquiry to completion. He’s friendly, easy to get in contact with and responsive. He knows his stuff, but crucially knows how make the technical stuff easy to understand. Reception desk staff were lovely too - friendly and helpful. Couldn’t recommend Jolliffes more.


    Great from start to finish … speedy and great communication … much faster completion than expected in this current climate so would thoroughly recommend
