Personal service

Contact us at Ellicotts, and you will always receive a personal service from the same highly experienced conveyancer or solicitor working on your case from inception to completion. We offer the benefits not only of our experience, but also of our longstanding relationships with our local, tried and trusted professional network of estate agents, surveyors, financial advisers, lenders and accountants.

Unlike many larger law firms who can be too busy to give a one-to-one service, and the cheap but notorious ‘conveyancing shops’ which devolve work to inexperienced unqualified staff, our conveyancers are always available on the phone or by email and strive to return calls within
24 hours. Two-way communication is key for us, ensuring our clients feel supported every step of the way, which is backed up by our strong negotiating skills, a sharp focus on timing and a sense of humour.


Whether you are a first-time buyer, occupying tenant, landlord, property investor/developer, we will guide you through the often complex rules of buying, selling, leasing and renting.


  • We cover buying/selling your home or investment property; re-mortgaging; and transferring equitable ownership, whether it be a flat, terraced house, detached house or a mansion.

  • Equity transfer – we advise on how to turn part of the value of your home into accessible cash.

  • Leasehold enfranchisement – we help long-term leaseholders (usually in a block of flats) to acquire the freehold to their property from their landlord, which means they own it outright and can easily extend the lease on it to 999 years.

We stick to our estimates and we always provide a full breakdown of our costs and additional charges at the outset of any matter, to ensure that there are no nasty surprises! As a local firm dealing with local people, we set our fees at the lower end of the price spectrum – not rock-bottom ‘conveyancing shop’ rates but not high-blown City prices either. You might initially save a few pounds by using a conveyancing shop but your case will mostly be handled by unqualified staff with just occasional checks by solicitors. Costly mistakes can lead to huge bills later - and you could also miss out on your dream house.

One-stop shop
We regularly deal with complications involving wills and tax in all areas. Any specialist queries are passed on to our trusted network of fellow professionals such as surveyors, accountants and financial advisers/lenders.

Conveyancing clients seem to like us: since setting up in 1960, we have relied on word-of-mouth recommendations and never had to advertise. So if you would like more details of our residential conveyancing services, or would like a free no commitment quotation, please call
