About Us.

Transparency about who we are and how we work it’s an essential part of our business.
Welcome to Simpson Jones Solicitors

We are the property law and wills and probate specialists.

We have purposely made a decision to specialise and focus on property (both residential and commercial) and wills and probate, because these are our areas of expertise and where our real passion lies.

No two property transactions are ever the same. Whether it is an odd restrictive covenant from 100 years ago, an issue with a right of way, or some unregistered land, we will work with you and for you to overcome any problems and ensure that your sale and purchase process runs smoothly and any risks are minimised.

Likewise, planning your legal affairs such as your wills, lasting powers of attorney or planning for care fees are vitally important decisions, but can be very complex. In addition, when you or your loved ones die, that person’s estate must be administered and it is essential that it is done properly.

Our specialist advisers can advise you and guide you, at what can be a very emotional time, in making those important decisions.

We care greatly about our people and our philosophy for client care extends itself throughout the firm.

We understand that when you are going through such important legal processes, that you want the best service from your legal team who you have chosen to work with. We make sure that you are kept informed all of the way through the process in a completely jargon-free way.

Our team at Simpson Jones Solicitors are happy to provide you with a quote over the phone or by email of our fees and answer any initial questions that you may have.

When buying with the assistance of mortgage finance it is usual for the solicitor who acts in the purchase to be instructed by the lender to act for them at the same time. For this to happen the solicitor acting for the buyer will need to be accepted on the mortgage lenders Solicitors’ Panel. I am pleased to confirm that Simpson Jones Solicitors are experienced and dedicated conveyancers. We are proud to be chosen by most of the major lenders including Halifax, HSBC, Santander, Nationwide, Virgin Money etc as Panel Solicitors.

Simpson Jones Solicitors are members of the Law Society Conveyancing Quality Scheme. This is accepted by various lenders and the property industry as a quality benchmark.
