Conveyancing is the legal process for transferring property from seller to purchaser. At O’Donnell McKenna Solicitors we understand that the purchase, or sale of a house or apartment, is often the biggest financial transaction to date in a client’s life.

We’ve put a great deal of thought into understanding what clients are looking for in a conveyancing solicitor, and we have identified a number of key issues:

  1. The solicitor must have the competence and the expertise to carry out the work on behalf of the client.
  2. The solicitor must have experience in dealing with residential property.
  3. The client should be confident that any title deficiencies are spotted and resolved to ensure that there are no problems down the line.
  4. Standards must not be compromised and professional work should not be delegated to junior or unqualified staff.

We guarantee all clients that any conveyancing transaction will be handled by a qualified and experienced solicitor who will personally ensure that the transaction is dealt with professionally and efficiently.

We have compiled a checklist for buying a residential property, which you can download. It’s not exhaustive and there are other things to consider, but you may find it useful in focusing your mind on the type of issues which might crop up, and we’ll be there to help you all along the way.

When you’re ready to buy your property, see our guide on the steps in a conveyancing transaction.

Please contact us for an appointment if you’re buying or selling residential property. We will deal with you professionally, confidentially and efficiently.
