Property Law

Our property lawyers deal with transactions related to residential and commercial property.  

Known as real estate law, it can cover areas such as conveyancing (buying and selling of property), leasing agreements, property finance, mortgage and lending, landlord and tenant agreements, land and neighbour disputes and social housing issues.

We are also able to offer abortive insurance to our conveyancing clients. For the last two years this has proved very popular as it protects our clients from paying high abortive fees should any conveyancing transaction fail. Please contact us for details.

Our property team includes; Vivian Bunce, Phillip Povey, Julye Magson and Carly Adams. To talk to one of the team, please call us on 01787 277375 or use the online form.

"Thank you for the work that you and the team at Wayman and Long have put in to ensure that our house purchase went ahead without hitches. We really appreciate your efforts to make the process run so smoothly".
