Our team of advisors are here to help guide and advise you on the best possible routes forward, and the most effective ways of achieving a positive outcome each time.
We work with you every step of the way, ensuring that you understand what’s going on, whilst also taking the time to talk you through the legal jargon to help make sense of these complicated procedures, giving you total peace of mind and assurance that your legal matter is being dealt with and completed in a professional and thorough manner.
Conveyancing is the process of legally managing the sale, purchase, re-mortgage or transfer of a property in England & Wales.
We have many years’ experience in assisting with the buying and selling of domestic property, and have become a well-known and trusted advisor for many of our clients not only within the North West, but across the rest of England and Wales.
Unlike most solicitor practices, our team only handle domestic conveyancing to ensure total focus and an in depth knowledge and understanding of the market.
We are members of the Council for Licensed Conveyancers, by whom we are strictly monitored, inspected and audited, further showing our commitment to providing a service that is all together better.
Kirkham Legal can provide an expedited service to many Kirkham property customers, as our team is capable in most circumstances (where no conflict of interest arises), of managing both the sale and purchase of a property from the one office. This means that your transaction often goes through much more quickly than if third party solicitors were involved.
We offer a range of services for both buyers and sellers:
For those customers selling through Kirkham Property, the conveyancing charges are fully included in the terms agreed for the sale of the property. For non Kirkham Property customers, a competitive scale of charges can be applied, which we are happy to quote for upon request.
If you are buying through Kirkham Property and are thinking about choosing Kirkham Legal for the purchase of your new property, we can offer competitive prices for our conveyancing services. We also offer quotes to those buying their new property via other estate agents, and would be happy to provide a competitive quote upon request.

A will is a vital document in determining what should happen to your money, possessions and property after you die, all of which are legally termed ‘your estate’.
If you don’t leave a will, the law decides how your estate is passed on, which may not be in line with your wishes.
Making a will is easy with Kirkham Legal, as we can advise you on the most suitable ways of distributing your estate, and how to do this in the most appropriate manner legally to ensure your wishes are carried out as expected.
Power of Attorney
A lasting power of attorney, also known as an LPA, is a legal document that lets you, the donor, appoint one or more people (known as attorneys) to help you make decisions, or make decisions on your behalf.
By carrying out this process, it provides you with more control over what happens to you if, for example, you were to have an accident or suffer an illness whereby you lacked the mental capacity to make a decision at the required moment in time.
Probate is often required if a deceased person leaves assets worth £5,000 or more in their sole name. It refers to an individual or number of people applying for the right to administer the estate.
If a Will has been left, a grant of probate is commonly required, which is a legal document allowing the executor to take the authority to deal with the deceased persons assets to distribute them as set out in the will.
In cases where a Will has not been left, we can also help you to apply to the probate registry to enable you to deal with the estate. In this case, we will help you apply for a grant of representation (also known as letters of administration), and provided the grant is given, will allow you to deal with the deceased person’s possessions.
