Property Solicitors

Property is more than just a piece of land or a set of walls. Whether it’s your home, your office or your investment, it’s inevitably a really significant part of your life.

Birkett Long’s property solicitors in Basildon, Colchester and Chelmsford have expertise in every kind of property transaction. Whether you’re buying or selling a home, renting, re-mortgaging, transferring ownership or releasing equity, our property lawyers know how to handle those challenging situations to take the hard work away from you. Our solicitors will be by your side from beginning to end, and we will make sure the process isn’t the stressful experience it might otherwise be.

As Birkett Long has specialists in both residential and commercial property, our clients include individuals and businesses. They may be first-time home-buyers or experienced professional investors; we may deal with one property for them, or hundreds.

No two clients are alike and the legal support we deliver is individually tailored to each one.

With a careful eye on the future, we work with our clients to negotiate deals, drive transactions through, and put in place the safeguards to protect your position.

Our fees are simple and clear - a full quote will be provided, with no hidden costs arising later.

What our clients say

  • First time using Birkett Long and I was very impressed. They have broken the old fashioned solicitors image by making themselves available and responding quickly to email, very efficient overall.
  • Once again, we send our sincere thanks for all of your help, patience and understanding in securing our purchase, which at times looked very unlikely. You have provided an excellent service. We thank you so much.
  • I would not have coped with the stress of the purchase which at times was immense had it not been for the fantastic team at your Chelmsford office. They were consistently professional and put up with my anxiety and occasional rants with kindness and understanding. In particular I cannot thank Suzanne Bradbury enough.
  • I have placed four property transactions, two sales, two purchases, with Birkett Long over the last two years and have been highly impressed with the professional and painless way they have conducted each.
  • I have used Birkett Long for matrimonial and family business, property matters and wills and probate and have received good service in all three departments. They are good at providing fee estimates to clients in advance and sticking to them, offering budget-friendly payment arrangements and using email rather than slow and costly printed letters.
