Our team deals in a wide range of residential and commercial property transactions.
The sale or purchase of a house represents a major transaction, often the biggest and most important for the individuals concerned. Similarly, while not personal, the acquisition of new business premises or land can be a major step in the development of a business. Such transactions can be stressful experiences. Our aim is to provide a service tailored to you, maintaining a good level of communication with all parties at all times. We bring the benefit of experience as well as a calm level-headed approach to the processes, helping to smooth the transaction for you so you achieve your desired result.
Cartmell & Co is a member of the Law Society’s accredited Conveyancing Quality Scheme. This provides a best practice quality standard for residential conveyancing by setting out a preferred practice for how residential property transactions should be completed.
We provide itemised estimates for any type of property transaction, whether a residential or commercial matter.
We are very competitive on price for the area. Our quotations clearly details the costs and disbursements involved.
There are no hidden extras.
Below is a brief indication of the steps you can expect in a standard property transaction. This is not an exhaustive list of all the work that is carried out to progress each step but an overview which we hope will help with your understanding of the normal process.
Our Property Department is ‘lawyer led’ so your case is always managed by your designated lawyer. We are proactive and reactive and will give you regularly agreed updates. We are also friendly, approachable and local – so any time you feel you need to talk to us, it is easy for you to do so.
We have an ever-expanding Department, originally founded by Robert Cartmell and now led by Lorraine Wilde. Lorraine has a wealth of knowledge and experience in both residential and commercial property transactions.
Lorraine is assisted by Roger Towner, a director of the firm with nearly 40 years’ experience in residential conveyancing and Emily Davis, a Chartered Legal Executive who has many years’ experience in both residential and commercial property transactions. Both Roger and Emily have actively developed the department.
They are supported by Susan Norley, an experienced Conveyancing Executive, Dianne Colman who has a background in property with experience from an agency perspective and Lisa Clarke, an experienced property secretary.
Lorraine, as Head of the Property Department, works in both our offices throughout the week but is primarily based in Stone. Both offices are covered by members of the team and clients can be seen at either of our Chalfont or Stone offices by appointment.
