Why instruct Swinburne Snowball & Jackson Solicitors?

As part of our professional rules, we aim to ensure that anyone wishing to use our services has the information they need to make an informed choice of legal services provider, including understanding what the costs may be.

Here at Swinburne Snowball & Jackson Solicitors, we understand how buying and selling a property is traditionally seen as one of the most stressful times in a person’s life. We, therefore, aim to make this as straightforward and as smooth a process as possible. We avoid legal jargon and offer our clients clear professional advice from lawyers with a wealth of experience gained over many years in the field of conveyancing. 

Based in Consett and accredited against the Law Society Lexcel standard, our approach to clients is one of friendliness and efficiency. Our clients are made to feel welcome but also confident that their legal issues are dealt with in a manner that is both expedient and competent. We strive to create the right impression by being as available and as approachable as possible.  As an accredited member of the Law Society Conveyancing Quality Scheme, we offer high-quality, friendly and efficient service, being the link in the chain and keeping all parties informed and up to date throughout the conveyancing process. 

As a conveyancing client of Swinburne Snowball & Jackson Solicitors, you will benefit from having the same designated conveyancer throughout the process from start to finish, thereby avoiding the “call centre chase” experienced when instructing a firm dealing in high volume conveyer belt conveyancing.
