Buying and Selling a House
Buying or selling a property can be a stressful event, not to mention one of the largest financial transactions you will make. At Jefferies, we ensure the transaction is as smooth as possible by walking you through the whole process.
If you are selling, we will help you from the start of the process right through to completion including redeeming your mortgage and paying the estate agents commission.
If you are buying, we will ensure that the property you are purchasing has a good and marketable title without any defects and assist you all the way through to registering the property at the Land Registry.
We offer an efficient and approachable service; and place high value on communicating with you each step of the way.
Landlord and Tenant
We are able to advise Landlords and Tenants with both residential and commercial premises. We’re able to assist on all aspects of starting and ending tenancies, and everything in between, from disrepair and service charge disputes to rent arrears.
We deal regularly with:
- Absent landlord for enfranchisement and lease extension
- Application to tribunal

We advise on a spectrum of property disputes ranging from issues arising out of the landlord and tenant relationship, to disputes concerning trusts of land and complex boundary disputes.
Our specialist team has considerable experience of acting for clients in the County Court and High Court in all forms of property litigation. We offer targeted, effective advice to enable both individuals and businesses to resolve their disputes in the most pragmatic way. Often, litigation is not the most effective way to resolve a dispute and our team can provide advice and representation in mediations.
The firm acts for a number of developers, investment companies, property management agents, charities and private landlords.
We also offer a full range of services to landlords of residential premises, including:
- Advising on recovering rent arrears
