Why choose Henriques Griffiths’ residential property solicitors?

Property transactions are often regarded as one of life’s most stressful experiences. With so much to do in a short space of time, it’s only natural – after all, property is one of the most significant financial commitments we can make. With this in mind, our dedicated solicitors have developed a service that aims to take the weight off your shoulders.

So how do we do it?


At Henriques Griffiths, we believe that the conveyancing process should bring excitement, not frustration. By instructing one of our specialist residential property solicitors, you can guarantee a smooth service from start to finish. We treat our clients’ property transactions as if they were our own, working meticulously to ensure each document has been thoroughly assessed and each search result is satisfactory. Where issues arise, we will go above and beyond to resolve them in a timely manner to prevent delays.


Our first step will be to gain a detailed understanding of the transaction and property in question in order to establish the volume of legal work involved. From here, we can provide you with a detailed quote for our fees. If there is no change to your situation, the fee we charge upon completion will not differ from the one we have quoted. This transparency is particularly beneficial during a time where certainty on costs is paramount to those involved.


From our vast experience working with a diverse client-base throughout Bristol and beyond, we have refined our conveyancing service to ensure each individual receives the same level of care and attention every step of the way. We know that the last thing you need is to be kept in the dark in regards to your transaction, so you can count on our residential property solicitors to keep you updated with each new development as it happens.

How can our residential property solicitors help you?

Boasting a wealth of knowledge and experience across the entire spectrum of residential property law, our team can assist and advise on the following:


If you’ve decided to purchase or sell your home, choosing a specialist property solicitor is essential in protecting your interests and ensuring a speedy transaction. Whether you’re upgrading your flat to a family home or your sights are set on a fixer-upper, you can count on our dedicated team to provide a seamless and reliable service.

Lease Extensions

Extending your lease can be a complicated, costly and time-consuming process, so it pays to be prepared. In order to determine whether the lease extension is worth the effort and expense, it’s essential to seek specialist advice from an expert residential property solicitor. Henriques Griffiths will always take the time to assess your unique circumstances to determine the best approach before assisting you in negotiating with the freeholder.

Buying and selling land

At Henriques Griffiths, our solicitors have extensive experience in buying and selling land and agricultural property – whether by auction, private treaty or tender. With close ties across the farming community in the South West, our specialist knowledge of land and agricultural transactions will help us provide you with both strategic advice and expert legal guidance through your purchase or sale.

New build

Often, the legal work involved with a new build property can differ slightly from that of an existing house: in many cases, house-builders and associations will give the buyer only 4-6 weeks between reserving a property and exchanging contracts. This gives the buyer’s solicitor a very small window in which to assess the property and ensure there are no issues prior to completion. If you have reserved a new build property and are seeking a specialist to complete your transaction in a timely manner, get in touch with our team today.

Help to buy

The government’s Help To Buy schemes are designed to help first time buyers on to the property ladder, and include various options: Shared Ownership, the Help to Buy ISA or the Help To Buy Equity Loan. Many of our clients purchasing property through the Help To Buy scheme will require a tailored approach to their conveyancing and expert advice as to whether buying through these schemes is financially worthwhile. If you have questions regarding a Help to Buy scheme or are seeking a quote for your transaction, get in touch with our residential property solicitors today.


Clients often seek advice from our residential property solicitors in regards to remortgaging; a tactic used by property owners to save on costs by getting a better rate mortgage. Remortgaging will either allow you to reduce your monthly payments or to raise capital, both proving as attractive options for homeowners. Whatever your reasons for remortgaging, our solicitors will provide step-by-step guidance throughout the process.
