Buying and selling your home can be one of the most stressful times. At MacLachlan we aim to reduce the stress by providing an efficient, thorough and friendly service and by offering practical advice and solutions.

Your transaction will be handled by one of our specialists, all of whom are legally trained and will personally deal with your case throughout the course of the transaction. We treat you as a person, not as a number!

We hold the Law Society’s quality kitemark CQS for conveyancing; in fact, we were the first law firm in Dorset to be awarded this accolade. We are also one of the few firms in our area who have a loyal following of London-based clients following many years working closely with several well known London Estate Agents.

Below are just a few of the areas our specialists deal with:-

  • Property sales and purchases
  • Remortgages
  • Buy to Lets
  • Gifts of Land and Property
  • Auctions
  • Leasehold variations
  • Purchases of freeholds for tenants
  • Equity Release Schemes
  • Rights of Way
  • Landlord and Tenant issues
  • Transfers of Equity

What will it cost?

We firmly believe that in order to give you the best possible value for money and the most accurate information as to the likely costs, it is best to discuss with you in person your individual requirements. All of us are different and one-size does not necessarily fit all.

Our team of experienced professionals provide advice and assistance to a wide range of property owners from first-time buyers to experienced property investors and we tailor our service accordingly – this means that you receive the appropriate advice at a competitive price for your particular circumstances.

By taking a few moments to discuss your situation with you we can then very quickly and simply provide you with a detailed estimate, based on your own circumstances. Some law firms give generic costs pricing information based on a set of assumptions, but then the charges are varied later with no real certainty to you.

Our property team are always available for an initial chat to discuss the likely costs and to explain the processes involved in the purchase or sale of your home. You can contact us by telephone or by email or by calling in to one of our offices. We will provide a no obligation and accurate estimate of the costs for your particular transaction.

Our fees cover all of the work required to complete the sale or purchase of your new home, including dealing with a mainstream mortgage lender, advice on joint ownership options, registration of ownership at the Land Registry and dealing with the payment of Stamp Duty Land Tax.

Under our professional obligations, we are required to publish our fees for a typical transaction however this is not a tailored estimate and is a very limited snapshot of what the costs and fees might actually be for your particular transaction.
