From moving house, making a will, financial advice to dealing with an accident or death in the family, they are all matters that require expert legal advice. Our solicitors are here for the ups and downs of life, offering an expert, friendly and sympathetic service.

Buying and selling a house

For many of us, buying or selling a house is the largest financial transaction we will ever make.

Residential property matters can throw up a host of issues that are sometimes extremely complicated.

Whether you are buying or selling your home, or remortgaging, our highly experienced residential property lawyers can take away the stress.

Wills, trusts and probate

Being able to see into the future would be very useful for asset planning, but unfortunately this is not an option. So if you become incapacitated or die, you need to make sure you have adequately protected yourself, your loved ones and your financial security.

Financial advice

Junk mail promoting financial products bombard us daily, but most of us simply haven’t got the time – or inclination – to consider all the options.

Yet there are huge differences in price and value. For example, basic life assurance is more than three times more expensive at some insurance companies than others. Unless you have the time to thoroughly research financial products, it’s almost impossible to find those best suited to your needs.


Residential Property Litigation

At Woodcocks we have a highly experienced team of Housing lawyers who advise landlords and tenants on a broad range of legal situations.

The legislation that affects both landlords and tenants is complex, with far-reaching financial implications – so expert advice is essential if you are faced with legal issues.
