The housing market may not have fully recovered, but Tayntons Solicitors in Gloucester have actually recruited new staff to deal with the growth of house conveyancing business coming their way. Sarah Mitchem, the firm’s Residential Property Partner, says she has noticed a definite upturn in conveyancing business over the last year.

“We started to notice it in January and February last year which are traditionally slow months for house sales, steadily building for the rest of the year,” she said. “Now, moving through the same period this year we are experiencing a high volume of turnover in both residential and new build, particularly in Kingsway and Hempsted where there has been a lot of new construction in the last 18 months.

“As far as we’re concerned, the housing market in Gloucestershire is pretty buoyant.

“We have had three partners and three solicitors working in house conveyancing and have just recruited solicitor Marie James and licensed conveyancer Penny Foley to cope with the demand and maintain the same high level of service to our clients.

“We offer a bespoke service to our clients here at Tayntons. Our clients deal with the same solicitor all the way through the process so that the solicitor gets to know the client and their wishes and provides them with a special face to face service.

“We have great experience in the new build and shared ownership market headed by Jim Cook, while Sarah Mitchem and Jane Davies concentrate on residential work. “Sure, there are deals out there on the internet and through supermarkets which appear to be cheaper but then you’re dealing with a faceless 0800 number.

“Buying a house is probably the biggest purchase any of us make in our lives and it is obviously vital to get it right.

“If the conveyancing is not carried out properly you could, for example, find yourself involved in costly legal disputes over boundaries, discover that there is a new road planned to be built opposite your home, or even that the seller did not have the legal right to sell the property.

“The extra cost of having it done properly is a small price to pay for the peace of mind in knowing that there are no nasty surprises in store for when, say, you sell the property to move up the ladder – it’s a very wise investment for the future.”
