Residential Conveyancing


Buying and selling a house can be a heavy burden. Here at Burnett Barker Solicitors we do it every day and will help share the load.

We think buying or selling a house is difficult enough without extra headaches so a dedicated solicitor will be appointed to your case so you can keep in touch by email, phone, letter or popping into the office.

lawsociety-conveyancing All our staff receive frequent updates and training on new regulations and our membership of the Law Society Conveyancing Quality Scheme ensures the highest standards are met.

Our “No Sale – No Fee” guarantee means that we won’t charge you a penny in legal fees if, through no fault of your own, your sale or purchase falls through.

We’re always happy to discuss your proposed sale or purchase, before you make a decision, and will give you a clear and fixed price.

It’s not just a house purchase we can help with whether it’s local or elsewhere in the country. We can also offer help and advice in the following property-related areas:

  • Switching mortgage provider
  • Buy-to-let investments
  • The right to buy your council house
  • Shared equity purchase (part buying & part renting)
  • Keyworker scheme purchase
  • Advice on joint tenancy issues
  • Plot sales
  • Auction sales

Often it is not the obvious areas which cause the most problems, it’s the unforeseen ones.

One common hiccup for homeowners is a covenant imposed on a property restricting what you can do with it. They have a nasty habit of rearing their head when you least want or expect them – such as a planned extension. You might need permission from a previous owner or apply for retrospective planning consent.

Whatever the problem, we can advise you on the route to take.

With our vast experience in residential property conveyancing and a long presence in the area, Burnett Barker Solicitors are in the perfect location, location, location…to offer the best advice.

We’ve helped thousands of clients move and are recommended by many of Bury St Edmunds’ leading independent estate agents. We can help you too!
