Compare Quotes

I am an experienced Private Client solicitor of over 10 years specialising in Probate, Wills, Residential and Commercial Conveyancing. Acting as the Head of Legal Practice for Spencer Lockwood Conveyancing I am regulated by both the SRA (Solicitor's regulation authority) and the CLC (Council for Licensed Conveyancers) which affords me the benefit of being able to apply the substantive aspects of Property Law whilst being supported by the procedural aspects of administering the estate and disposal of assets. To speak in plain English both the theory and practice of files I undertake are dealt with in a professional and regulated manner.

My probate service is an end to end administration of the estate covering all aspects of managing the estate including:

  • Grant of Probate and ensuring the Will is valid, when there is a Will
  • Letters of Administration and applying Rules of Intestacy, when there is no will
  • Preparation of the legal Oath required to be sworn by the Executors and/or Administrators
  • Calculation of any Inheritance Tax liability and completion of IHT tax forms for HMRC
  • Completion of Probate application forms
  • Statutory publication in the London Gazette to protect against any future claims on the estate from unknown creditors
  • Assistance in disposal of any assets if required. The same lawyer will continue to act on any conveyancing files which arise as a result of my probate work, to ensure continuity for clients.

We also deal with any legalisation of documents required when assets are abroad, either carrying out apostille for member countries of the Vienna Convention or carrying out the appropriate procedure through the foreign office for countries who are not members.

My approach to our clients is to offer a full service which is speedy and efficient whilst being empathetic to my client's needs. I enjoy speaking with clients, face to face or on the phone, and forming a good working relationship regardless of whether they require me for one transaction or become a frequenter of our firm.

I also have experience dealing with a variety of conveyancing transactions, both Residential and Commercial.

Residential:

  • Purchase
  • Sale
  • Remortgage
  • Transfer of Equity
  • Help to Buy, Shared Ownership and Right to Buy
  • Lease Extensions and Collective Enfranchisement

Commercial:

  • Freehold sales and purchases
  • Long lease sales and purchases
  • Assignment of short lease
  • Acting for the landlords in relation to licenses and grant of new lease
  • License to alterations

I prefer for my work and my clients to speak for me but would just end by saying that I expect all of my work to be flawless, without mistakes and in all my years practising I have not had one complaint.
