The successful sale of your property can be reliant on the instruction of an efficient and experienced solicitor throughout the conveyancing procedure. Lucas James have close links with several local firms of solicitors who are experts in conveyancing and would be pleased to offer you advice and guidance throughout all the legal elements of your sale and any subsequent purchase.


It is a legal requirement for the seller of a property to provide a valid Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) for their property before it can be marketed. If a valid EPC does not exist for the property, then we would be delighted to arrange for an Energy Efficiency assessment to be undertaken by a qualified domestic energy assessor (DEA) on your behalf. The EPC is then made available to any prospective buyer and will be used in the advertisement of your property.
