Residential Conveyancing

Residential Conveyancing

Helping with your Property Transactions

You have very likely heard the word conveyancing before but may not be entirely sure what it means. In law, conveyancing is the transfer of the title of a property from one person to another and the preparation of documents relating to this.

We are aware that the conveyancing process can, at times, become stressful and demanding for everyone involved so the residential conveyancing team at Fraser Dawbarns will be on hand when you need them, protecting your interests and helping you to avoid problems throughout the process. We offer flexible communications options that accommodate your needs and lifestyle, whether you prefer face-to-face communication or contact by phone, SMS or email.

An Experienced, Local Team

We deal with around 2,000 residential property matters each year and we understand the importance of timing so we manage your matter to your timescales. We translate technical terms for you and make sure that you understand what is happening. Our lawyers will meet with you to explain your options face to face and in plain English and answer all your questions.

Our residential conveyancing professionals will go the extra mile for you. If you have concerns about potential developments in the area you are looking to buy, we will find out what you need to know from the local authority. We will explain what it means for you if a building is listed or if the property is in a conservation area. Our years of experience will allow us to achieve the very best results for you.

Whether you are buying or selling your home, all property transactions will require some important decisions. Having someone with experience in the process, guiding you through your options can be invaluable. We keep you informed of developments as they happen and explain your options to make sure that buying or selling your home is as stress free as possible.

With five offices across Wisbech, King’s Lynn, Downham Market, March and Ely we are close by if you need to discuss urgent issues or resolve any problems.

Buying Property

Buying property is very likely to be the most significant purchase you will ever make. Whether you are buying your first home, growing your property portfolio or buying a retirement home, it is helpful to have a team of skilled professionals on hand to handle the legal issues and help take the stress out of your property purchase. By choosing the residential property team at Fraser Dawbarns, you can be sure to have a team of professionals on your side that will help you avoid the potential pitfalls that can come with a property purchase.

Selling Property

There are several reasons why you may be selling property, you may be moving to a new home or you could be administering the estate of a loved one. Whatever your reasons for the sale, the process can often be demanding and, at times, stressful. The property team at Fraser Dawbarns have developed a series of procedures that are designed to make your property sale as smooth as possible. Contact the residential property team at Fraser Dawbarns to find out how we can help you.


There are many reasons why you may consider a remortgage, but whatever your circumstances, the residential conveyancing team at Fraser Dawbarns can provide you with sound advice. You may be considering a straightforward remortgage for home improvements or to consolidate personal loans, or you may be looking into an equity release to help with your retirement planning. Regardless of what changes you are thinking or making, you will receive a personal service and clear advice. Contact us today to see how we can help you release equity from your property with a remortgage.

Transferring Ownership

Transferring a home can be done for a variety of reasons, the result of a divorce settlement, separation or for tax reasons. Whatever the reason, our specialist lawyers will be able to advise and guide you through the pitfalls of transferring a home, and ensure you make the decision which is right for you.
During the transfer of ownership, we will keep you informed of progress through a method of your choice. With offices across the region, we are close by if you need to meet face to face to discuss an urgent issue or resolve an unforeseen problem.
Why not contact us today to see how our affordable and efficient service can help you with transferring a home.

    Services for Leaseholders

    At Fraser Dawbarns LLP we can help you if you are looking to extend your residential lease, or if you are looking to purchase the freehold with other tenants.

    Leasehold Extension

    This is a specialist area of law and there are potential dangers which we will help you avoid. We will guide you through the set procedures, timescales to be followed and deadlines to be met. We will explain the statutory rights which, usually, allow you to extend your lease by 90 years, and which is added to the remaining term. A premium is payable and we can advise you where to go to find a leasehold surveyor who can calculate the likely amount.

    Leasehold Enfranchisement

    If you are looking to purchase the freehold with other tenants we can, again, advise you in relation to the statutory procedures and in relation to the participation agreements which tenants often enter into before going ahead. You will again need a leasehold surveyor to help establish the best premium to offer. We can then deal with the notices and transfer. We will also deal with the registration for you and advise on setting up a company or declaration of trust if they are needed. If you are looking to extend your lease or acquire the freehold, contact us today to find out more about how we can help you. 

    Tenancy Agreements

    At Fraser Dawbarns, we help tenants by advising on leases and tenancies before moving into a rented home. We understand the need to inform you at all the stages involved in the renting process. Our residential conveyancing team will keep you informed of the progress through a method of your choice; this could by post or email.

    Our specialist team has a wealth of experience advising tenants on the contents of leases and tenancy agreements including deposit schemes. If you are moving into a rented property and need help and advice with a tenancy agreement, contact us today to see how our expert team can help.

    Residential Conveyancing Pricing

    For a general idea of the cost of our residential conveyancing services, including buying, selling, remortgaging and transferring ownership, please see our residential conveyancing pricing page. Fraser Dawbarns tailor our service to your individual circumstances, so the best way to get an accurate quote is to contact our team who will be happy to provide you with a quote.


    We are in strange times in the pandemic and what impressed me most is that this did not affect the level of service or provide excuses. We completed in 12 weeks and whilst I appreciate the chain has a bearing on timescales, Fraser Dawbarns did not hold up the time frame with their part.
