Our residential conveyancing service

We offer a reliable, cost-effective conveyancing service for clients in Chichester, Fareham and Havant, as well as throughout West Sussex, Hampshire and South East England.

Auction Sales and Purchases

There are a number of unique considerations when buying or selling property at auction. We can advise buyers on any issues you need to consider, including making sure any necessary checks and searches are carried out and reviewing auction finance agreements, as well as the contract of sale. As a seller, we can help you prepare contracts and ensure any potential legal issues are considered.

Buying or Selling a House

Our residential conveyancing team can guide you through the entire process of buying and selling a house. This includes preparing, reviewing and negotiating amendments to contracts of sale, carrying out checks and searches, handling exchange of contracts and transfer of funds and all of the other legal details.

Buy To Let

Our Buy to Let property solicitors can advise you on everything you need to protect and manage your investment. This includes reviewing and suggesting amendments to the contracts of sale, carrying out searches, examining existing tenancy agreements and supporting you with funding arrangements and lender requirements.

Changing Ownership Arrangements

When you jointly own property, it can sometimes be necessary to transfer the property into the name of a single party or to transfer one party’s share to another party. This most commonly happens in the event of the death of one of the owners, meaning this can be a particularly sensitive issue. We can guide you through the whole process simply and quickly to make everything as easy as possible.

Equity Release

Equity release is a popular way to unlock some of the value of your home, especially for those who are retired. We can advise you on your equity release options and ensure any deal you enter into matches your objectives and protects your long term interests, as well as those of your loved ones where this is a concern.

Forces Help To Buy

The Forces Help to Buy Scheme was launched on 1 April 2014 as a three year pilot scheme and was introduced to encourage and support home ownership for Service personnel. The scheme has recently been extended for a further three years to December 2022.

At Glanvilles LLP our Residential Property Team do not charge a fee for assisting with Forces Help To Buy scheme.

Leasehold Enfranchisement

If you need to extend the lease or buy the freehold on a leasehold property, we can help you understand your legal right to do so and guide you through the entire process of lease renewal or buying a freehold, as well as related issues such as Right to Manage.


Remortgaging can allow you to cut your monthly repayments by moving to a better deal, or increase the size of your borrowing to fund home improvements or other plans. We can guide you through the entire legal process, ensuring your interests are protected, as well as handling the financial side of the transaction.

Shared Ownership Schemes

Shared ownership schemes are an increasingly popular way for people to get onto the property ladder. We can advise you on how such schemes work, including your rental obligations and rights to “staircase” (i.e. increase the share of the property you own over time).

Our conveyancing fees in Chichester, Fareham and Havant

We aim to keep our conveyancing costs clear and transparent, so will provide an estimate with a full breakdown of our fees and other conveyancing costs at the outset.

The costs of conveyancing are broken into two parts – our legal fees and the costs we have to pay to third parties for essential checks and searches during the conveyancing process. These third-party costs are known as disbursements and should be the same no matter what conveyancing firm you use.
