Buying or Selling a property

Lamb & Holmes Solicitors have been offering residential conveyancing services to the Northamptonshire, and surrounding areas for over 200 years.

For most people, buying or selling a property is the biggest single financial transaction that they will ever be involved in.  It is no surprise that for many the process of buying or selling a home is considered to be one of the most stressful lifetime experiences.

Our team of conveyancing specialists deal every day with people who are buying or selling their homes or other property. Some of our clients are first-time buyers with limited experience and funds. Others are further up the property ladder or are looking for investment property. 

We offer our clients a fixed price structure for transparency so there are no unwanted surprises and optional additional support for first-time buyers. Whatever your situation, we will help you to complete as quickly as possible. Essentially, we take care of everything so you can focus on starting life in your new home.

As well as assisting with a sale or purchase, or perhaps both we also offer a wide range of conveyancing services.

We can  help with the following:-

  • Re-mortgages
  • Transfer of Equity
  • Multi purchases
  • Multi-party transactions
  • Buy to lets
  • New Build and Development Properties
  • Property disputes
  • Right to buy
  • Protecting Joint buyers interests
  • Flats and leases
  • Searches

We are an accredited member of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. The Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) provides a recognised quality standard for residential conveyancing teams.

Membership establishes our credibility based upon:

  • The integrity of our team
  • Our adherence to good practice management standards
  • Our adherence to prudent and efficient conveyancing procedures

Once you have instructed us to act on your behalf you will be allocated a dedicated conveyancing expert who will work with you throughout your transaction and will keep you updated and regularly informed on the progress of your matter.

We promise to answer emails and telephone calls. Our clients are important to us and we understand how important good communication is.

First Time Buyer?

We know when buying property, being a first-time buyer can be an exciting yet daunting experience; a huge financial commitment often follows.

With so many different parties involved, it can be really confusing to know which one to follow and / or engage with. There’s the buyer, the buyer’s solicitors, the seller, the seller’s solicitors, the estate agent, mortgage lender and sometimes even a mortgage broker. It’s understandable why people often become nervous and sometimes, unclear on what to do.

Our team of conveyancing experts have a wealth of experience dealing with first-time buyers. We will take extra care to ensure that you have a full understanding of each step of the process and make sure you are kept updated each step of the way.   This should be an exciting experience so let us guide you through the process and deal with any issues that may arise, leaving you to get on with the enjoyable tasks involved in purchasing a home.

Complimentary Free Gift

On completion of the purchase, Lamb and Holmes Residential Conveyancing Department are offering a complimentary Home Pack to each first-time buyer in 2018. The Home Pack includes a variety of useful products to help get you started the day you move into your first home.

There is so much to arrange and consider.  The small but important things can sometimes be forgotten.  If you  have forgotten the tea or coffee whilst in the middle of the move for example, then our Home Pack will come in handy. We have also included a ‘Combi Key’ to open the gas and electric meters, just in case the previous owner took the key with them, which often happens.

“We buy and sell houses on a regular basis and wouldn’t use anyone else. Our dealings have mainly been with Carol Harrison who is wonderful. Anne Height is great too. We always tell our friends to go with Lamb & Holmes”

Mr & Mrs Mutch


“We have used Anne Height and Debbie many times and cannot fault their excellent service.

Anne Height and Debbie were as usually, excellent in both dealing with our queries and getting us answers in a very timely manner.

We have used Anne’s services many times and have always found her support and guidance exemplary. I will have no hesitation in recommending Anne or Debbie to anyone and regularly do. They deserve a huge pat on the back”.

Mr & Mrs Ellis.


“Dear Mr Riddle,

Thank you for your work for the transfer of my property. It was well executed”.

Mr Hampton.


We don’t feel anything could be changed. The service was absolutely excellent. Debbie was first class at communicating everything to us and keeping us informed.  She also went the extra mile a few times when others weren’t responding to her.

We feel that our mortgage was dealt with efficiently and got the results we needed. Thanks Debbie.

Mr & Mrs T.W Banks
