Property Conveyancing Solicitors

Alleviate the stress of buying or selling a home with the support of our experienced conveyancing solicitors.

Residential Property Conveyancing in Northern Ireland

Moving home is renowned for being one of the most stressful things you can do. We understand that, so we’ve put measures in place to take away as much of the stress as possible.

Conveyancing is an important — and legally required — part of all property transactions. At its most basic level, this is the transfer of the legal title of a property from one person to another. But when it is done well by experienced solicitors, conveyancing can also make buying and selling properties less stressful.

At DA Martin Solicitors, our specialist conveyancing solicitors offer affordable, expert legal advice that can help you avoid costly mistakes and speed up your transaction. The result is an easier, calmer and smoother move.

There are several scenarios in which you might need residential property conveyancing in Northern Ireland — each needing specialist conveyancing knowledge.

We’re members of the Law Society of Northern Ireland Home Charter Scheme, which means we are committed to surpassing agreed standards for all areas of conveyancing work, including:

  • Buying a New Home
    Guiding you towards legal ownership of a new property with a keen eye for potential pitfalls and a focus on achieving a stress-free transaction. We manage everything from pre-contract to completion.

  • Co-Ownership
    Advising you on co-ownership conveyancing to handle the property transfer and preemptively manage any future legal complications. We will look after your interest when you’re buying a home under a Co-Ownership scheme.

Conveyancing typically takes around 8-12 weeks in Northern Ireland. The process may take longer depending on the level of complexity involved in the property transaction, as well as how quickly any other parties involved in the transaction act and correspond.

We will always work with you to achieve a completion date that is best for your circumstances. Get in touch to discuss potential timescales for your property transaction.

You can work with a conveyancing solicitor anywhere in Northern Ireland to handle your property transaction. The DA Martin Solicitors office is ideally located to provide conveyancing services across Northern Ireland. If you like to deal with legal matters in person, you can join us in our office in Antrim for a free consultancy.

Property law is different in Northern Ireland than in England and Wales or Scotland, so it makes sense to work with a solicitor with experience of conveyancing in Northern Ireland rather than someone who works mainly in another legal jurisdiction.

Legal fees for conveyancing in Northern Ireland vary widely depending on the complexity of the property transaction and any exceptional legal work needed to complete the transaction. 

At DA Martin we aim to provide a competitive transparent fees quotation from the outset of your transaction. Get in touch for a free consultation and guidance on the conveyancing fees that will apply to your circumstances.
