Conveyancing Taunton

Our team of experienced lawyers offer reliable, efficient and cost-effective conveyancing in Taunton, and are highly committed to ensuring that the purchase or sale of your property runs as smoothly as possible. We’re fortunate to have strong links with local estate agents, and even provide training to some of them.

Let us take some of the stress

Purchasing or selling your house is stressful process, but our lawyers are here to share some of that burden. Relax with the peace of mind that your transaction is in safe hands with the legal side of things taken care of, and focus on packing up your belongings, arranging removers, sorting out utilities, and agreeing completion dates.

Why choose us?

We understand that working closely with estate agents is crucial to achieving a swift and successful transaction. What’s more, our links with local agents are strong, in fact, some members of our team have actually provided training to some of them.

This close relationship ensures that we’re able to track the status of the chain, and keep the transaction moving along at a good pace.

We believe that being clear and transparent about legal fees is imperative, and we’re always happy to provide a fixed-fee quotation, and offer a breakdown of all the expenses and fees involved so that you can accurately budget.

Our experience

Our team of lawyers offer decades of property experience, meaning that there will be very few ‘problems’ that we won’t have experience in dealing with. This important experience goes hand in hand with the use of the latest information technology, allowing us to proceed with your transaction as smoothly and efficiently as possible.

This combination of expertise and technology has resulted in us being appointed as ‘Panel’ solicitors for most Lenders.

In recognition of our high standards of service we are also members of the Law Society’s CQS accredited scheme.

The importance of communication

At Slee Blackwell we understand the value of clear communication during a conveyancing transaction, so you don’t have to worry about an impersonal call centre when you contact us. Every member of our team has their own direct dial number, meaning that you can always speak to them directly. You can also communicate directly with your lawyer by email.
