How can I help you?

I have specialised in property work since I qualified as a lawyer over 30 years ago and deal with a wide range of commercial, residential and rural work. This includes advising clients on a range of development and landlord and tenant work. I also have a lot of experience in private property, local authority and charity law and help my clients in these areas.


Delivering what you really need

I am a member of the Commercial and Residential Property Departments. Both teams are partner led and consist of a number of specialist lawyers; all available to meet the clients at any of the offices or at your place of business. I can also draw upon the legal expertise of colleagues in our other teams to provide advice on all aspects of business law and litigation and to help with your personal matters including wills, trusts and tax planning and family matters to ensure that you receive expert advice tailored to your needs.


What else should you know?

Tees is a member of the Conveyancing Quality Scheme which is a recognised quality standard for conveyancers maintained by The Law Society and I am a member of The Law Society’s Property Section.

Whilst my focus is particularly on property work I also continue to assist my clients with their various other requirements. I have wide experience in local authority, private client and charity law. I am a member of the governing body of a local primary school and a trustee of various local organisations and play an active part in the business community.

Additional areas of expertise

Mr Glyn Goddard

Melton Mowbray

I have worked with Mark for many years covering a range of property transactions and have always found him knowledgeable, responsive and proactive when needed. In the past year we have dealt with a substantial sale by a consortium and a lease renegotiation with a large company tenant. In both instances lawyers for the other party were intent on negotiating several important terms. Mark was effective in arguing and winning the substantive points whilst being pragmatic in conceding some minor issues that were not significant to us. This helped us reach a good conclusion whilst avoiding unnecessary fees.

Mr Andrew Rowell, Chairman, Stronghold International Ltd


I have been fortunate to have been working with Mark for a number of years in handling the property legal requirements for my Self Administered Pension Scheme. On all occasions that I have required his services I have found him to be prompt & efficient with never a second thought to consider the clients best interests. I would have no hesitation to recommend Mark’s services if you want a professional and dedicated approach to your property legal requirements.

Sir George Bull

Arkesden, Saffron Walden

Over a period of some 20 years I have had occasion to use the good offices of a local Solicitor in Saffron Walden. I have always contacted Mark Carter; immediately he has offered to help, usually providing the advice himself or where necessary calling in advice from appropriate other resources. Always the answers have been provided promptly and efficiently. We have become very reliant on Mark Carter for the provision of legal help and advice whenever required.

George Maclean


My wife and I have used Mark Carter at Tees over many years, for advice on and execution of residential property transactions and planning issues. We have also used Tees for wills, family trusts, Lasting Powers of Attorney, and company formation. We have always found Tees prompt, friendly and efficient, and, as a retired lawyer, I would strongly recommend them.
