Residential Property

Whether you are investing in a new development in Central London or a country estate for you and your family, Woodroffes provides the comforting reassurance that comes from more than a century of experience dealing with high quality residential conveyancing.

“There is scarcely anything in the world that some man cannot make a little worse, and sell a little more cheaply. The person who buys on price alone is this man’s lawful prey.”


We aim to make your transaction as stress free as possible. With this in mind, we do not operate a sectionalised conveyancing policy nor automated case management but pride ourselves on providing the continuity and peace of mind of having a solicitor deal personally with all aspects of your matter. Whilst this results in a more highly qualified person than may strictly be necessary dealing with some of the more mundane aspects of your transaction, it enables our clients to deal directly with a solicitor who will be fully familiar with every aspect of your transaction. Your solicitor can discuss your transaction with you at your convenience without the need to refer to other fee earners and incorporate your requirements as to structure or timing. Their experience and expertise means that they can deal quickly and smoothly with any problems or complications as and when they arise, minimising the risk of delay, inconvenience and stress for our clients.

Our residential department is experienced in all areas of Landlord and Tenant law whether you are seeking advice with regard to a buy-to-let, considering applying to your landlord for an extension of the term of your lease or facing a consortium of tenants wishing to acquire your freehold reversion of their residential or mixed use apartment block. We have extensive experience of residential conveyancing and development in the immediate Belgravia vicinity of our office and of dealing with some of the Great Estates including Grosvenor, Cadogan and Howard de Walden.

Our rates are always highly competitive and our clients recognise that when making the largest investments in their lives, it is important to have a solicitor who they can trust to deal with the legal aspects confidently and expertly.
