Private Property

If you are buying or selling your own home and you are already busy enough running a business or keeping up with your family / social life, it makes sense to use a solicitor who is accessible and reacts promptly to your emails and calls.
For this, one of the most important transactions of your life, it is vital that your Solicitor is able to spot problems in your prospective purchase before you have invested too much in the process.
You must feel that you can trust your Solicitor and that he is experienced and able to give you good advice.
Please contact John Bulpit to discuss your sale or purchase.
If you are purchasing a property for in excess of £1m you might like to consider our ‘bespoke service’ which includes a visit to the property and in-depth reporting – for more information please contact John Bulpit direct.
