As a law firm offering conveyancing services, we have commercial referral arrangements with, or receive direct recommendations from, third parties such as estate agents or housebuilders. Our prices in these instances will be different to the price available to you from our website (which may be higher or lower than the quotation created on this website). If our services have been recommended to you by such a third party, please refer to pricing information available to you from the third party or call us directly on 0800 138 0458.

What is Residential Conveyancing?

Residential Conveyancing can refer to the buying or selling of a house. This can be a complicated and unfamiliar process to you. Many people instruct a solicitor to help them navigate the process and receive professional and experienced advice. Our conveyancing team deliver a personal service and friendly service which suits your needs and will work with you closely to ensure that you get the highest level of client care. You can read our buying and selling processes below.

The Conveyancing Quality Scheme

Our residential conveyancing solicitors are accredited under the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS), so you can have confidence in our expertise and the service we deliver. The CQS standard requires firms to have a high standard of practice management and provide excellent client care. The CQS badge of quality is highly regarded by mortgage lenders too – many will not deal with solicitors who are not CQS accredited. Switalskis is on the approved panel of solicitors for all major lenders, which means that you can use our residential conveyancing solicitors no matter which mortgage lender you choose.
