What is conveyancing?

Conveyancing is the legal transfer of a property from one owner to another. It ensures that when you buy or sell a property, everything is legal and you get the property you paid for at the agreed price. Conveyancing starts when an offer is made on a property or when a seller accepts an offer and lasts until completion day when keys for the property and contracts are formally exchanged.

    • "Simon Nosworthy at Osbornes, ably assisted by Emma Healey, recently completed the sale of a flat for my sister and me, and we cannot speak too highly of them. These are solicitors who have ‘direct dial’ at the foot of their communications, who answer their phone and respond promptly to emails! The sale process was long-drawn-out and somewhat complicated and Simon was brilliant - patient, he gave confident timely advice when needed, and with Emma’s help, all the details were meticulously attended to. We also felt the fee was very reasonable. I would say, if you enjoy long ponderous solicitors letters and waiting a week for a reply, then don’t go to Osborne’s. But if you want an intelligent, nimble-footed, helpful and nice solicitor - then you won’t do better!"

      Property Client

    • "I was recommended Simon Nosworthy of Osbornes solicitors by my estate agent. At first I was reluctant as I had always previously used another solicitor for my conveyancing, but I did use Simon (assisted excellently by his paralegal Emma Healy) and I am very glad I did. The sale of my property was completed with the minimum fuss. You could count the telephone calls made on one hand and there was only one visit to the office. Simon is affable, professional and extremely efficient, hence the five stars. Thank you Simon and Emma."

      Property Client

    • "Great personal service from Simon and Emma. Always approachable and constantly looking for the best possible solution. Would definitely use their services again and have no hesitation in recommending them to friends and family!"

      Property Client

    • "I would highly recommend Osbornes to anyone looking for a Solicitor to assist them to purchase a house. Simon is clearly committed to ensuring that his clients receive the best possible service. He was very ably assisted by Emma. Simon and Emma kept us informed along the way. As a first time buyer, I really appreciated all the advice Emma gave me on what to expect from the process and how it works. Thanks so much Emma and Simon!"

      Property Client

    • “Great service - we were kept informed of the progress of our sale without having to ask, Simon and Emma ensured the transaction ran to the agreed timetable and everyone we encountered in the firm were always helpful and friendly.”

      Property Client

    • “I highly recommend Simon Nosworthy… Our case was a bit more complicated than usual with a hard and fast deadline in the end. Simon has an eye for details and guided us through a frustrating conveyancing process. He got it over the line for us in the end which was a real joy to complete and move in”

      Property Client

    • "From start to finish, Osbornes Law were exemplary. As first time buyers we entered the process knowing very little, and Maria Elliot of Osbornes Law was incredibly patient and helpful throughout the process. A challenging purchase that threw up many issues, Maria didn't miss anything, and her advise was first class. We would (and will) recommend Osbornes Law, and in particular Maria, to anyone."

    • "Osbornes Law, and Maria Elliot, in particular, were outstanding. Maria dealt with an increasingly complex and stressful situation with speed, efficiency and the utmost professionalism. It was my first time buying a property and I felt completely supported throughout the often overwhelming process. I can only speak of Maria's work in the highest possible terms."


    • "We received an excellent service from Maria Elliot who made sure that our sale and purchase went through smoothly and we were kept updated and informed every step of the way."


    • "Osbornes were instructed on a complex, time sensitive property matter for my elderly parents. Maria Elliot and Arjun Jethwa were responsive, knowledgeable and saw the matter through to completion in the required timeframe. Highly recommended."


    • "I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Osbornes Law to anyone requiring their services. Maria Elliot assisted with my initial flat purchase several years ago and then represented me again recently when I sold the flat. Maria was helpful throughout and despite a very frustrating and lengthy sale process, Maria fought my corner at every turn."


    • "Much appreciation for the excellent service from Rachael Bewick at Osbornes Law. Rachael guided me professionally and promptly in my transaction. The process went smooth with her help. Highly recommended."


    • "Rachael represented us for both on the sale of our old property and the purchase of our new property. She has been absolutely fantastic. She has always explained clearly every aspect of the process, gave us extremely valuable and professional advice and most importantly, she has given us time via zoom and phone when we needed it the most. She has been so approachable and flexible and this was of great value to us. We would certainly recommend Osbornes to anyone that is willing to buy/sell a property."


    • “Rachael & Amber were far more than their jobs required – couldn’t have done this without their expertise & kindness.”


    • “Excellent service from Rachael – she was responsive and speedy!”


    • I've recently used Osbornes for my home purchase and an equity transfer. Rachael was fantastic all the way through, keeping me informed and up to speed as to the purchase progress.

    • As everyone knows, buying a house can be an incredibly stressful experience. Emily and Isabelle at Osbornes took the pain away by leading the process, being incredibly proactive and informative. We didn't have to chase them and they managed to pull a rabbit out of a hat by helping us exchange a few days before Christmas. I'd highly recommend them for a house sale and purchase.

      Lorna B, Google Review
