We are also on the panels of or sole supplier to a number of bridging finance companies, in relation to their residential, commercial and/or development finance deals.
With more than 100 years combined conveyancing experience between them, our varied property teams cater for volume conveyancing work and plot purchases, as well as providing services for higher net worth clients where a more bespoke service is usually required.
All of our conveyancers are qualified solicitors, licensed conveyancers and experienced experts who work in small dedicated teams, supported by experienced assistants. We are not a volume conveyancing firm in the sense of only offering a very commoditised service, as our systems are modern and our approach is flexible and innovative.
PLS Solicitors are currently ranked 39th nationally in the country’s top firms for residential conveyancing volumes alone, and the firm handles approximately 300 transactions per week.
We are CQS accredited and members of the Conveyancing Association, having adopted their pledges.
We were pleased to be nominated in the Law Firm Services Conveyancing Awards last year.
