Residential Property

We are able to advise our clients on the complex laws relating to property.

How We Work

The ownership and occupation of property is a vital part of all our lives, whether we are living in a house or a flat, running a factory, a shop, a design studio, a restaurant or acting as a landlord letting any type of property to others to occupy as tenants or licensees.

At Blackhams we understand the significance to you of moving to a new house and the stress the process can involve. All transactions which we deal with are handled by a qualified lawyer, who will maintain a direct relationship with you and be available to answer your enquiries promptly whether by telephone, email, or letter, as you prefer.
