How can I help you?

I am experienced in dealing in all aspects of commercial property work including acquisitions and disposals, leases, development work, asset management, investment and property finance. I also have experience in local authority, residential property, private client and charity law. I act for a wide range of clients including landowners, property developers, landlords and tenants, and large commercial companies

Delivering what you really need

I am friendly, pro-active and approachable. I  strive  to identify and understand  my client’s needs from the outset and ensure that they are kept informed throughout the transaction and work hard to achieve the timescales required.  


What else should you know?

I enjoy being involved in the local community. I am a member of the governing body of  a local school and am a trustee of various local organizations. I jointly run the Saffron Walden business breakfast club. I enjoy traveling and  the outdoors and particularly running and  hiking and also  skiing and cycling.

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.

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.

Saffron Walden Council

Saffron Walden

Saffron Walden Town Council has worked with Tees Law, in particular with Mark Carter, for many years and has always been delighted and impressed with their professional approach and advice. By the very nature of Council business, our queries can be varied and complex but we have always received a prompt, comprehensive and friendly response from Tees.
