Conveyancing Solicitors in Brighton, East Sussex

Buying and Selling Your Home

Buying or selling your home is one of the most important decisions you can make, but it can be stressful. Choosing the right conveyancing solicitor is vital. Our Conveyancers pride themselves on doing everything they can to ensure that once an offer has been accepted, the transaction is completed as quickly and as efficiently as possible.

Our Conveyancing solicitors in Brighton all live locally and have worked in the area for many years. Many of the properties in Brighton and Hove are listed, or are in conservation areas, and we know the issues that would be of concern to any purchaser. We also have a high level of expertise when it comes to leasehold properties, and the technicalities involved with this type of property. As you’d expect, we also have an excellent working relationship with local estate agents and managing agents.

Beyond this, we also undertake a large proportion of our conveyancing work in London and other areas in the South East and have developed an extensive overview of regional issues.

Once you choose Dean Wilson LLP, you will be given the details of a Conveyancer who will look after your transaction from start to finish. He or she will be available to you via a direct-dial number and a direct email address. You will also be quoted a fixed fee for the work, as well as a breakdown of all of the disbursements. Your assigned Conveyancer will be your point of contact until the successful completion of your move.

We are here to make your move happen, so please call Siobhan on 01273 249205 or Karl (if your query relates to a property in London) on 01273 249248, to discuss your requirements and to obtain a free, no-obligation quote.

Conveyancing Quality Scheme

We are members of the Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS). This scheme provides a recognised quality standard for residential conveyancing practices. This gives us a level of credibility with regulators, lenders, insurers and consumers based on:

  • the integrity of our conveyancing staff
  • the firm’s adherence to good practice management standards
  • prudent and efficient conveyancing procedures through the scheme protocol

Our Conveyancing solicitors in Brighton deal with all aspects of buying and selling your home:

Buying and Selling

Our Conveyancers will check the title of the property, including the Land Registry Title Plan, to ensure it can be legally sold, draw up the contracts of sale, research and advise whether there are any restrictions on the use of the property, handle the deposit and final payment for the property and register the new ownership of the property with the Land Registry.

We will not only deal with relevant paperwork in connection with buying or selling a house, but will also provide informed advice as to how the sale or purchase of the property is progressing and will flag up potential problems or pitfalls.


Our remortgage specialist Conveyancers take care of the necessary legal work on behalf of owners wanting to remortgage their property. Our Conveyancers take care of redeeming the mortgage and will confirm that the terms of the new mortgage are met. We are on the panel for all major lenders and if we are not on the panel for your lender, we will make an application to be placed on their panel so that we can accept your instruction.

Transfer of Ownership

Property owners may wish to change the legal ownership/status (transfer equity) of their property for a number of reasons. Whatever the reason for the transfer, what may appear to be a simple arrangement can be quite complex and legal advice should be sought. Our Conveyancers can take care of all of the legal work including the preparation of the transfer deed, notifying any parties with an interest in the property such as mortgage lenders (who must give formal consent to the transfer), assess whether stamp duty is payable and deal with the registration of the transfer at the Land Registry.

Right to Buy Purchases

Under the right to buy scheme, you are able to buy your home at a price lower than the full market value due to the length of time you have spent living at the property as a tenant. Once you have instructed our Conveyancers, we will ask for the paperwork from the council and review this. Our Conveyancer will then report to you on the property. The council will guarantee the title and therefore there are not many enquiries that would need to be raised. Our experienced team will provide you with a quick and cost effective transition in becoming a property owner.
