Residential Property Transactions: Avoid becoming a victim of Cyber Crime

Buying or selling a property is, for many of us, the one time we are engaged in a transaction worth hundreds of thousands of pounds, and therefore vulnerable to large-scale fraud.

Purchase Sales

A secure, personal service

Yes, like many other solicitors we’ve invested in the latest software solutions to ensure you get a fast turnaround – but that doesn’t mean you’re just a name on a computer screen.

We care about the people behind each transaction and are dedicated to providing a first class service which is why many local estate agents recommend us. We will work quickly and methodically to ensure you can move into or out of your home as quickly and easily as possible.

What’s more, unlike online services, you will never have to run the risk of uploading confidential information or private documents to the internet.

Sensible, fixed prices

Whether you’re buying or selling, the last thing you need are escalating legal costs. Our fixed pricing policy means you stay in control of your budget.

We talk your language

We will unpack the legal terminology, tell you what you need to know and keep you informed every step of the way. No problem if your first language is Punjabi, Gujarati, Hungarian or Chinese – we can do business in these and many other languages.

Rest assured

Kidd Rapinet is a member of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme – official recognition of the standards of excellence we work to.
