Buying or Selling?

Choose the right solicitor for your Conveyancing

Our conveyancing team offer a full service in every aspect of buying and selling residential properties, both rural and urban. We advise on mortgages and re-mortgages, freehold and leasehold sales and purchases, buy-to-lets, new-builds, auctions purchase off plan development sales and leasehold enfranchisement.


If your planning on buying or selling a property whether it’s your first home, an investment or a gift for a loved one, you don’t need to be reminded that buying a home, it is often said, can be one of the most stressful, not to mention expensive, events in a person’s life.


McGlinchey & Co prides itself on providing the highest quality conveyancing services, cost effectively whilst also providing a personal service. We specialise in all aspects of property related matters – buying and selling, re-mortgaging, lease extensions, secured loans, trust deeds, option agreements, transfer of equity, sub sales, staircasing, help-to-buy – to name a few.
Please take the time to review any competing quotes and you will find that the bottom line with us is always cheaper. If it is not please speak to us.


When you go to see a property not everything is immediately apparent. A full survey is always advisable and this may highlight other issues with the property of the land. We will undertake thorough searches on your behalf to ensure there are no other factors you should be aware of before buying your property.


You may need a mortgage to purchase your new home and we will work with the mortgage company to get your mortgage in place in time for the completion of the purchase process.


Before you finalise your decision to buy the property, we will provide you with a lengthy document called a Report On Title which will draw your attention to all aspects of the property purchase and highlight any concerns we may have. When you (and the mortgage company) are happy we will exchange contracts on your behalf and arrange a mutually convenient completion date for you when the title on the property moves to you and you can move into the property. We will then finalise all the documentation including HM Land Registry registration and the payment of any stamp duty that is required.

Once your property is registered in your name, we will send you all the paperwork for the purchase of your new home.


With respect to selling your property; we get in touch with the buyers solicitors and the agents and we will gather all relevant documentation for the sale and send to the buyers’ solicitors, along with the draft contract. We will answer any and all questions raised by the buyer’s solicitors on your behalf. When the buyers and you are ready we will exchange contracts for you and advise on completion dates.


Finding the right solicitor can mark the difference between a smooth or a stressful move. For most, a home is a very emotional possession and often the largest asset.

McGlinchey & Co are accredited by the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme which is the quality standard for residential conveyancing legal practices.
