Community & Events

Direction Law works with a number of charities and voluntary organisations within both our local community and the sectors within which we work, we also attend many events; details of some of these activities are set out below:

 

 

If you’re a first time buyer looking for help to get on the property ladder, why not visit our stand at the London Home Show on Saturday March 23rd 2019.

The London Home Show, supported by the Mayor of London, is the major event for first time buyers in London and attending the event is the best way to get all the latest information on the affordable home ownership market in the capital.

The London Home Show is FREE to attend. For more details please visit the share to buy website.


 

Last year we attended the First Time Buyer Home Show, a one-stop shop to help first timers buy their dream home and step on the property ladder. Produced by First Time Buyer magazine, exhibitors include property developers, housing associations, solicitors, financial advisors, mortgage consultants and interior experts.

Presentations took place from leading property experts throughout the day explaining the different aspects of buying your first home. Independent financial advisers were on hand to give free private consultations and Direction Law exhibited at the event and were available on the day to answer any queries you had on the legal process.

The First Time Buyer Home Show was at Lancashire County Cricket Club, Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester on Saturday 15th September and was FREE to attend.
