Our trained and experienced lawyers gladly provide conveyancing services for residential properties, including leaseholds, freeholds and new builds. As you’d expect, we never discriminate against any property, no matter the size or provenance.

What is Residential Conveyancing?
Residential conveyancing encompasses the processes of buying and selling properties. This is the most common conveyancing service we offer, as there are always homeowners seeking to move on to greener pastures. There’s nothing more fulfilling to us than helping people take their first steps to the next stage of their lives.
Residential Conveyancing Services
While many different property types can be residential dwellings, from flats to bungalows, the classification of ownership of the land is often the more crucial factor to consider. Here are just a few categories that Hillfort’s experienced conveyancing lawyers are capable of handling.
Freehold properties fully owned by the current residents can be conveyed to interested buyers. These cases can be slightly more straightforward as there is only one owner to make arrangements for.
New-build estates may be fresh on the block, but if you want to transfer them from one owner to another, make sure to let Hillfort handle the specifics.
Stately Home Conveyancing
Trust-protected ancestral homes and other high-end properties can be complex to deal with, but we prefer to give them similar treatment to smaller residential properties.

How much does residential conveyancing cost?
Our quoted fees for residential conveyancing are, as with all of our services, fixed upon confirmation, but they can vary from case to case. The provided quote will accurately reflect various factors, including the age, size and condition of the property, the amount of environmental checks that have to be performed, and more.
What is a residential conveyancing paralegal?
A paralegal is a valued legal advisor for a specialised service that is not yet a fully qualified lawyer. While paralegals can be useful to have around in some cases, we pride ourselves on the fact that all of our employees are fully qualified lawyers – we hope that this gives our clients greater confidence in our professionalism and our ability to follow through with all legal cases presented to us.
What does a residential conveyancer do?
A residential conveyancer is a legal professional dedicated to transferring legal titles of property ownership between different homeowners. As part of the transference process, they will arrange property viewings, checks, tax calculations, Letter of Engagement forms, and much more after the initial consultation and payments are agreed. All throughout, the conveyancing lawyer will be at your disposal to instruct as you wish until the transfer of ownership is completed.
My residential conveyancing service is taking much longer than it should. What should I do?
At Hillfort, we aim to provide the fastest and most efficient service possible. However, on very rare occasions, there may be insurmountable setbacks to our conveyancing operations, leading to unfortunate delays. In cases where this happens due to factors beyond our control, we will always keep you updated on our progress and offer our sincerest apologies. If these delays are unacceptable, there is a complaints procedure on our website to vent your concerns and we will respond to them as soon as possible.
Licenced Conveyancing Services
Other Conveyancing Services
Beyond residential conveyancing, we offer great deals on various other conveyancing services as well.

Leasehold Property is created when a lease is granted out of a freehold title. A lease is a long tenancy, typically between 99 and 999 years. The lease will contain conditions of use and ownership, which need to be looked at carefully by a specialist conveyancing solicitor or licensed conveyancer.
For help with auction purchases, we deliver an impressively fast, streamlined service for our clients, as well as plenty of legal advice throughout the whole process. Before buying at auction it is advisable to instruct a specialist solicitor or property lawyer to advise you on all the legal aspects of the title and contract before you commit to making a bid.
