Our specialist team will guide you through the choices available from your first enquiry. This is an integral part of the home moving service.

Friendly, approachable, specialist property lawyers

As part of our services, Prickett and Ellis work closely with OpenDoor Conveyancing. They have a proven track record of thousands of successful moves, and offer a new and much improved kind of conveyancing service.

Lawyers are often described as stuffy and unapproachable – not now. At OpenDoor Conveyancing we believe that being friendly and approachable is as important as being competent and professional.

Our innovative and client focused approach enables us to co-ordinate your move efficiently and to keep you better informed than ever before.

We offer you two ways in which to enjoy our unique approach to providing the legal service when you move home:

Direct Conveyancing

Our direct conveyancing service is provided by our own legal team of conveyancers working to stringent standards. They offer expert knowledge and advice with exceptional customer service.

Regional Conveyancing

We maintain a national network of regionally appointed independent specialist conveyancing lawyers.

These firms have all been appointed upon the recommendation of team agents and enabled by us to access and utilise our systems to ensure we can co-ordinate your move efficiently and help to move you quickly.

Whichever way you wish to use us you will have the benefit of our unique home moving legal service:

No move – no fee

Should your sale or purchase fail to go ahead for any reason whatsoever, no legal fees will be payable by you.

Whether you use our Direct or Regional service we have strict service standards in place which enable us to offer you our unique Service Pledge on every case:
