Are you looking to buy or sell a house? Houses are probably the most expensive items you’ll deal with in your life. So it’s important to make sure you do things right. Because of the high value of property, even small mistakes could cost you hugely.


"I had heard that Viv Clough and Jude Keir were the best and I found this to be true. They were both very professional and informative and they and other members of staff were very friendly and made me feel welcome. There is nothing they could improve upon and I plan to use the firm again and would recommend to others."

Moving house is one of the most stressful things you’ll have to do. There are so many things you need to sort out. You’ll have to arrange removals, let your utilities providers know, as well as your family and friends. Among all this bustle, the last thing you want is a painful conveyancing process.

Who will handle my case?

The same professional on your case from start to finish.

How long will it take?

We understand time is of the essence. So we will get your conveyancing done as quickly as possible so your worrying is kept to a minimum.

Will I be kept up to date?

No one wants left in the dark, so we'll be in regular contact to let you know how things are going.

How much exactly will I pay?

Some companies may lure you in with cheap introductory costs. Then surprise you with hidden fees when everything’s done. You need to know how much you’re going to pay from the start.

You’ll know what you’ll have to pay from the word "go". We’ll give you a comprehensive estimate and let you know the cost of any known disbursements beforehand.

In most cases the following searches will be carried out ahead of your purchase:

  • Local Authority search - you’ll get information about planning permission and building regulation. You’ll also get to know if the local authority maintains the road and footpath outside your new home.
  • Water and Drainage search - you’ll get to know if the property is connected to the mains water supply and public sewerage system. If they’re not, we’ll find out what arrangements are in place to cover these things.


"Christina impressed us from day 1 with her pleasant, unflustered manner coupled with her helpful, reassuring attitude which, as you will know, is vital for customers' piece of mind. We certainly felt at ease dealing with her. We would not hesitate in recommending Bendles (and Christina) to others.
