We often deal with what we would describe as commercial cohabitation disputes between co-owners (where properties have been purchased by two parties as investments).

We can advise both the claimants and defendants and can also assist in situations where the other party has been made bankrupt.

Claims against conveyancing solicitors

Unfortunately, problems often arise for our clients when their interests in a property has not been adequately protected and they have been poorly advised by solicitors who acted when they bought the property. We can also help you with claims against conveyancing solicitors.

This type of claim can often be attributed to you investing more significantly into a property than your partner and putting in into joint names where it is held in equal shares meaning that you do not potentially get back the full amount your invested when that relationship has broken down. We are here to offer both advice and can act on your behalf to help you resolve these disputes with your solicitor.
