A message to our clients:

With the recent move to allow shops and offices to fully re-open, we will continue to review our policy on clients attending our offices. Currently, we are not inviting clients into the office but we are able to briefly meet with clients by appointment at the door of the office. Please note that face coverings are still required indoors until further notice. We remain committed to following the Government guidelines as rules continue to change in line with the easing of lockdown.

We continue to operate our business as usual across all the services that we offer our clients, both current and prospective.

We continue to offer teleconference-based or telephone consultations.. We are aware that not everyone has been offered full vaccination yet and understand that some people may feel safer continuing with socially distanced communications.

Our family and wills / probate solicitors continue to offer initial advice remotely by video conferencing and by telephone for up to one hour (as advertised on this website). Please call us if you would like to speak to one of our experts.

If you have a case in court, please telephone us so we can discuss representation.

We appreciate your patience, support and understanding over the past year since the restrictions related to the pandemic began. We hope you continue to stay safe, and wish you a brighter 2021!

House prices reportedly rocketed in 2014, with the highest increases seen in London and the South East. According to data collected by Zoopla [1], the average property value in the South West increased by 7.2% in 2014.

So what does this mean for 2015?

Although we have only just welcomed in the New Year, it seems as though the trend of increased house prices may well be set to continue according to research conducted by the Office of National Statistics[2]. The worst likely to be affected are first time buyers, who may struggle to fund a larger deposit and secure a mortgage unless lenders relax their ending criteria to make the property ladder more accessible for first time buyers.
