Residential Conveyancing

Moving home is a hugely significant step so it is essential you have the best conveyancing solicitors working for you, to ensure everything runs smoothly.

The residential property conveyancing work we will carry out on your behalf will depend on whether you are buying or selling a property but generally, it is a three stage process:

Agreeing on the sale

Once a sale is agreed on the property, a number of checks will need to take place before it can proceed. These include confirming the identities and addresses of both the buyer and seller, as well as ensuring the funds are available for the purchase.

Key information about the property will also be gathered and it is at this stage the survey and local searches will be carried out. Any issues that may arise as a result will then need to be resolved before contracts are prepared, checked and ready to be exchanged.


Once the contracts have been prepared, drafted and thoroughly checked, a date for exchange will need to be agreed. We will arrange for you to sign your contract and will coordinate the exchange so that the sale becomes legally binding.


This is the day when everything is finalised and the sale goes through. It typically takes place two weeks after the date of exchange to allow time for all the final paperwork to be prepared and completed and for the funds to be made available for the property purchase. Once all payments for the property and fees have been made the sale is complete and the new owner will be registered with the Land Registry.

At Lanyon Bowdler, we are able to manage all aspects of your property transaction including:

Property Sales 

  • Verifying your ID and address
  • Obtaining the title deed for the property
  • Coordinating all the property information
  • Effectively managing any issues that may arise from the survey or searches and renegotiating where required

  • Coordinating signatures and exchange
  • Completion of all paperwork
  • Obtaining mortgage statements
  • Managing financial transactions including the payment of your outstanding mortgage and any other fees

Property Purchases

Living in Telford

Telford is widely regarded as one of the best places to live in Shropshire thanks to its excellent amenities and facilities, easy access to some of the country’s most beautiful countryside and its close proximity to Birmingham.

It is a popular choice amongst commuters wanting to live a little further out of the city and there is plenty for families to do here as well.

The award-winning Telford Town Park provides 450 acres of open, green space and it is always a hive of activity. Popular amongst young and old alike, it features nature trails, play areas, mini golf, high ropes and a regular programme of events.

The Telford Carnival is a major annual event held in the town each summer, bringing the streets to life with its parade, live music, and food and drink stalls creating a colourful, vibrant and extravagant celebration.

In recent years, the town has benefitted from multimillion pound investment, completely rejuvenating the local retail and leisure facilities including The Telford Centre, which is the largest shopping mall in Shropshire. There are 175 stores offering retail therapy and cafes in abundance on this 25 acre site and welcoming an average of 300,000 visitors through its doors every week. Southwater Leisure Hub was also created as part of Telford’s extensive regeneration and is another welcome addition to the town featuring bars, restaurants, a cinema complex, ice-rink, a community library and local art.

Telford is very much a town for the twenty-first century but it also fully embraces the industrial history of the local area. Telford Steam Railway is one such attraction along with the nearby Ironbridge Gorge. Located just five miles south of Telford town centre, it is the birthplace of the industrial revolution and is one of the UK’s most popular UNESCO World Heritage Sites, with more than 545,000 visitors flocking here each year to see a bygone era brought to life.

The M54 links Shropshire to the M6, while there is a network of major roads including A49, A41 and A5 also serving the county.

Telford is only a 45-minute drive from Birmingham, and subsequently Birmingham Airport, with Manchester Airport also easily accessible by car and train.

Telford Central is the town’s railway station, approximately 10 minutes’ walk from the town centre. Direct trains to London Euston operate twice a day from here with frequent services to Birmingham.

The housing market in Telford

The average price for property in Telford currently stands at £173,759 according to Zoopla (October 2020) with flats selling for an average of £99,276 and terraced houses for £120, 219. At the upper end of the market, £750,000 will buy you a large feature property with gardens and stunning views over the nearby countryside.
