Pick which office you wish to use:



Pre-contract stage

  • Firstly you must instruct us to begin work. You should do this as soon as a buyer is found to avoid delay. Details about the sale will be obtained from you and you will also need to supply the original forms of identity to meet with the strict money laundering requirements. You will also need to complete various forms which provide basic details about the property being sold. If there is a mortgage on the property you will also be asked to supply your mortgage account details.
  • Your estate agent will forward us details of your buyer’s legal representative. If you don’t have an estate agent you must supply us with the contact details of your buyer and which firm of solicitors are representing them.
  • We will check your title deeds and prepare draft contracts. The contract will state the land being sold and on what terms you are prepared to sell. These documents will be sent to your buyer’s solicitor for consideration and approval.
  • Your buyer’s solicitor will raise enquires in relation to your property, which must be answered to their satisfaction.
  • The contract will then be forwarded to you for signing in readiness of ‘exchange’.

Post contract – pre-completion stage

  • Only when the seller and buyer are ready to commit to the transaction will contracts be exchanged. These confirm what the parties must do and mark the stage at which the contract becomes legally binding. This ensures that neither party can withdraw without incurring penalties.
  • The transfer deed will be forwarded to you once received from the buyer’s solicitor. The contract states what the parties must do, and the transfer deed carries it out.

Post completion stage

  • Completion occurs when all the terms of the contract have been satisfied. The money is received from the buyer’s solicitor and any existing mortgage/secured loan is repaid.
  • You must leave the property on or before the day of completion and ensure that it is cleared of all personal possessions other than those included in the sale.
  • The keys to the property must be handed to the buyer directly or through the estate agent once instructed to do so.
  • The transfer deed is dated and forwarded to the buyer’s solicitor with the deeds enabling the ownership of the dwelling to change hands.

Mrs Kathleen A

Excellent relationship management, clear and concise advice including option analysis. Very happy with all aspects of the service provided and the outcomes achieved. Friendly professional service.

Mr & M

Carey Robinson acted as our Solicitor on a recent commercial purchase and she was brilliant. Carey was super efficient and we were kept up to date on every aspect of the purchase. From start to finish our "Property Auction" purchase only took 7 working days to complete. We will definitely be using Carey again and can highly recommend her 5 star service.

I have nothing but praise for Gordon Sewell at the Hull office. He conducted my unusual and difficult civil case with great care and understanding. Gordon also injected the right amount of sympathy for my plight without being unprofessional. I would recommend him to anyone needing a clued up civil litigation lawyer.

Richard K

Mr Nick Gray was assigned my enquiry and worked with me throughout. He made himself available at all times and was always supportive to me on numerous occasions when I found myself unsure and admittedly nervous. He never let me down. I believe his advice was always good and I relied on it throughout. I think the award was the best I could have obtained and in conclusion I can honestly say that I am happy. The other contact I have had over the years was your receptionist, the face of your company. I was always greeted with a smile and the offer of a cup of coffee. On the occasions I visited your Hull office I was always made to feel important. Thank you.

Professional and courteous team. Recommend highly.

I’ve rated my experience with Williamson’s solicitors as excellent.My case was handled by Mr. Gordon Sewell. Mr. Sewell was very quick to get to work on my case, as was necessary at the time. Everything he did for me was thorough and made sure I had every chance in my case. Everything Mr Sewell did for me turned out a success and I couldn’t have been happy with the way he dealt with myself, could communicated with myself and dealt with the case in its entirety.I wouldn’t hesitate to use Williamson’s solicitors again should I require it and would recommend their services to anyone. In fact, I already have since my experience!Thanks again Gordon.

Recently used Williamsons Solicitors as part of a remortgage and some other matters. Can't fault their service at all. Carey dealt with my file and was polite, professional and informative from beginning to end. Always kept me up to speed with progress. I would highly recommend them.

Mrs Margaret W

Excellent service with a friendly face

Mr Martin a

Was very happy with the service given by Williamsons solicitors who dealt with the probate of a friends will and also the selling of her property. Especially Diane Ramsden whose help was invaluable.

Williamsons took on my case following the collapse of another Hull legal practice. Despite them having to pick up a large amount of work already completed by others, they worked tirelessly to ensure the correct outcome for me. I cannot recommend this company highly enough, they go above and beyond the norm to make sure their clients are treated fairly.

We used Williamsons for selling and buying a property, we found Jane Cousins and her assistant Sam Pollard to be pleasant, professional and efficient. Lisa on reception downstairs was particularly helpful and polite. Thank you to you all.

Mr J G

Avery good service with very professional and knowledgeable staff.

Brilliant, thank you for helping me make this process easier.

Mr G B

I would recommend Williamson’s to any potential client. From the onset I was supported throughout a very difficult conveyance and my solicitor was very professional at all times. It is advisable to engage the services of a local company and not one advised by online estate agencies. Very competitive pricing too. Thank you Williamson’s.

Mr and Mrs Overall

Very helpful quick excellent service Have dealt with both Jenny Holloway and Emma Hudson in the past and on each occasion have found them both excellent and would recommend them both to any future clients Thank you once again for your excellent professional service

Mr C P

Brilliant communication and a first class effort despite a Rocky move, Jenny and Emma at the Hull city centre branch where fantastic.

Ms A

Sue L

Our solicitor Carey Robinson was at all times helpful and professional, nothing was too much trouble. I would not hesitate to recommend her to friends and family.

I have used Williamsons Solicitors twice this year - for obtaining probate and for the sale of a leasehold flat and on both occasions I have found Williamsons to be extremely efficient and speedy. They were very knowledgeable and kept me well informed at all times. Any queries I had were answered promptly and all advice given was accurate and most helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend Williamsons to anyone in need of a first class, reliable and customer friendly solicitor. Thank you for making a traumatic situation as stress free as possible.
