Residential Conveyancing

Direction Law specialise in residential conveyancing of all types and this will be enhanced as a result of our ongoing restructure.

For many years we have been renowned for providing reliable, swift and pragmatic advice from our various departments which all specialise in different aspects of residential conveyancing. Although our structure is in the process of changing, the specialisms all continue to be offered.

Affordable Housing has been a strength of ours for many years. For more details on these services read more about our affordable housing. All affordable housing purchases will remain with Direction Law until such time as the restructure completes, with work being undertaken by our New Build Shared Ownership and Resales & Staircasing departments – these departments will also deal with any related residential sale and purchase transactions.

For an affordable housing quotation (including any related residential sale or purchase) please fill out our quotation form.

General residential conveyancing work that is unrelated to an affordable housing transaction, plus new build purchases (other than shared ownership) are now undertaken by Strive Law which now employs all staff previously employed by these departments of Direction Law.
