Get specialist advice from a conveyancing and property solicitor

At Tees our property solicitors will:

  •         Study the details of the searches and surveys and point out anything of significance to you and advise you should there be anything to be concerned about
  •          Draft and check all the small print in contracts so you know everything’s been covered
  •        Liaise with the mortgage broker if you have one to make sure the money will be available when it’s needed
  •          Manage the exchange of contracts when everything is ready to go and make sure that happens smoothly
  •          Hold the monies and arrange transfer of funds on the completion of contracts to make sure you secure the property

What our clients say

Mr and Mrs W


I would like to thank Kirsten and Pat for your excellent professional service in this transaction on our behalf and which further cements an already strong relationship with your firm, which we have experienced over the years, both on a personal and professional basis.

Mr Hugh Birley


We have been clients of Tees all our lives, and my grandmother and great-grandfather before me. We have been looked after by the ever efficient Allan Wright, Cathy Izzard and Eleanor Worby and each of them have been efficient, effective, pleasant to deal with and unfazed by our own levels of disorganisation! Their support staff have always also been excellent.

Mr Lawrance Lucas

Hunsdon, Herts

I am very grateful for the professional service that everyone at Tees has shown me over the past few years. In particular my appreciation goes to Cathy Izzard who drew up my late mother’s Will, arranged Power of Attorney and administered probate; to Toni Chalmers-Smith for care fees planning and related financial advice and to Allan Wright for the smooth conveyance of my mother’s house sale. They are knowledgeable, approachable and show empathy to what is sometimes a difficult process.

Hilary and John Curley


I just wanted to say a big thank you for the help and practical support and advice you gave throughout what was a protracted selling experience!! With a difficult buyer, it was only your level headed advice and direction that stopped me from pulling out at what would have been the wrong time!! I would recommend your team to anyone wanting to sell their home, and will certainly use you again if Hilary and I get itchy feet! The whole experience was excellent – well done, I don’t often get the chance to say such things.

Mr Clark


My house purchase was fraught with issues and delays. Natacha did an amazing job at keeping things going, indeed our seller's estate agent said that he had never seen a solicitor work so hard for so long to make sure a deal went through. She has been amazing and kept me informed throughout. I will be using Wortley Byers for all my legal work from now on and would recommend them to anyone. Worth every penny and more.

Mr and Mrs Baker


We want to thank you and your colleagues for the excellent service provided to us at the time of our sale and the purchase of our new home and for dealing so promptly with matters as they arose. We felt that the three of you made an excellent team and were impressed that each of you knew precisely the stage we were at when we telephoned or wrote to you. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending your services and indeed have already done so.

Mr. and Mrs. P


Morning Eleanor. We just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and your team for assisting us with both our purchase and sale. You and your team have been the most professional and efficient team we have ever come across and given that we both deal with conveyancers on a regular basis it is a real testimony to you.

David Marsh

Bishop's Stortford

I was always kept informed of the progress of the transaction by the friendly and efficient Conveyancing Team at Tees. There was always someone available to answer my questions, either on the telephone or in person. All in all, a service well worth the very reasonable fee. Thank you very much Tees for a stress-free process.
