Conveyancing Solicitors Brighton & Hove

When you buy, sell or remortgage a property, you are advised to use a conveyancing solicitor to look after your interests and deal with the complex paperwork.

Your solicitor will take care that all the legal conditions and obligations are met, and that the new mortgage goes into place without problems. He/she will also act on behalf of your current lender, making sure your existing mortgage is repaid (if you are not a first time buyer).

Choosing Crosby & Woods as your conveyancing solicitors in Brighton & Hove means that during the conveyance, you will be told what is happening, what you have to do next and be given a number of documents to sign and return allowing the next stage to go ahead.

It is important to respond to any requests promptly, so that you do not delay the whole process. It is not unusual for a chain of home movers to be all lined up and ready to go, only to then discover that one of them is guilty of not dealing with a request to act on something, and the whole process grinds to a sudden halt. Don’t let it be you.

A break in the chain is unpleasant and stressful for all concerned and can easily be avoided by good and open communication at all times. Crosby & Woods will make sure the conveyancing process is as smooth and stress-free as possible. 

Why not use our Conveyancing Process Guides to help you understand what happens at each stage of buying and selling a property.

"In August 2020 I purchased a property and Daniel Curry acted as my solicitor. I was very pleased with the service I received. Daniel was extremely responsive and dealt with all issues promptly and communicated all matters to me on regular basis. Towards the end of the purchase, I also received the service of Mary-Anne Burt who works closely with Daniel as a conveyancing assistant. Again I experienced an excellent service and I strongly recommend them." T. Dean 2020

"I would like to say how happy I am with the services of your team. Helena excelled herself dealing with a difficult and challenging (for many reasons) sale of my property, lease extension and sale of garden, all of which has been completed today.
I started the process with Dean Skinner, and was then handed over to Helena, although Dean did take time out to meet with Tony (my husband) and myself to sign the forms at a moments notice when needed.

Both Dean, and especially Helena were excellent and were always happy to answer my questions and keep me updated.
Never was a phone call or email ignored.
Thank you once again to both of them, they are a credit to your company, and I would have no hesitation in using again or recommending."- S Meah- October 2016

"Dear David,

 I felt I must write to say how well Dean and Helena have looked after me during the recent sale of a flat. This was a small matter really but it arrived at a very difficult time for me and Helena especially, was extremely supportive and helpful.

 These things are always a bit stressful for those of us not versed in the law but Helena was approachable throughout and helped me find a sense of perspective amidst the sea of endless queries. They dealt  very professionally with many more queries and demands than I knew about  and for this I am also grateful. Without them there were times when I could have cheerfully pulled out." Ms A Cotton, Hove- August 2016

"We would like to thank you for all your hard work and patience.  Without your help and expertise I don't know where we would have been" Mr & Mrs B- July 2016

Conveyancing client sale and purchase - "Excellent service, always available and went through without a hitch.  Would not hesitate to recommend"

Mr C Robins -July 2016 

"Dear Dean,

Even though the work you are doing for me is not yet complete I would like to express my thanks to you for not only your considered and good advice but also for your patience, speed of response to both telephone calls and emails and for me a real rarity of actually of being able to telephone you when necessary and on the rare occasions when you not available to receive a return call shortly afterwords. 

What a contrast you are compared to so many others. It is often a nightmare dealing with solicitors, many just don't get your work done, don't respond to telephone calls and charge huge amounts.  You even managed to complete a purchase of an investment property within two months, something of a rarity outside of London and your bills have been very reasonable.

Thank you so much for your really excellent service, you have been and continue to be a real pleasure to work with, I couldn't recommend you more highly. "

"Pat Richards has always been a fantastic solicitor to have working on your side. His professionalism, wisdom and experience are second to none. I have been using his services now for several years and he has helped me with many property purchases and sales, making each one simple and pain free and as importantly, done at a very fair and reasonable price.

For someone who runs their own business and has limited time available to devote to the ‘nitty-gritty’ process of property purchase I have always been able to completely rely on and trust Pat to handle these things for me with absolute confidence my best interests are looked after. He is hardworking and looks after my whole family’s affairs. I would have absolutely no hesitance in recommending his services to anyone at all. He is an excellent member of what is a very professional and knowledgeable legal team at Crosby & Woods Solicitors. Thank you again for all your help Pat". Mr. C.H, Hove
