Ray Borley Dunkley LLP


Ray Borley Dunkley LLP, Solicitors, were established in 1837 and have since then and until now been successfully advising and assisting clients with the sale and purchase of residential properties locally but also in other areas of the Country.

Our charges for our conveyancing services are very competitive compared with other Solicitors in the area and we are always willing to give free Quotations of our costs and details of Stamp Duty, Land Registry fees and other payments in a way that is both transparent and clear. We are very keen to assist clients in the stressful process of moving house and do not wish to add to that stress by giving misleading figures or hiding or disguising hidden costs.

Our conveyancing services use all the modern technology, telephone, facsimile, email, internet and Case Management systems which means that we can deal with matters quickly and efficiently and we can keep in touch with clients and other parties involved in the moving process. However, we dispensed with the services of Percy the pigeon some years ago. We also find that because we operate from High Street premises this gives both our clients and ourselves greater accessibility to each other which can be extremely important when speed is of the essence. If you need to exchange Contracts tomorrow then sending a Contract or other document in the post for signing and return is simply not good enough. We find that most clients need to call in to our offices at least once during the moving process.

We are pleased to say that all work carried out on clients behalf in the conveyancing process is dealt with by a qualified Solicitor, who will have had many years of post qualification experience.

As Solicitors we are completely independent of any third party interests which provides a huge benefit for all clients in that they can discuss openly and frankly any problem or difficulty which arises in the conveyancing process in the knowledge that this will be dealt with confidentially and that any advice will be given freely with the client’s interest in mind. This can be particularly important when any problem arises with say the conditions of a Mortgage Offer, any dispute or disagreement with the Estate Agent involved, in respect of any comments made in a Surveyor’s Report and with the clients own financial arrangements.

In addition as local Solicitors we have a great knowledge of the local area, local services, the Banks, Building Societies, Surveyors, Removal Contractors, which can be of considerable assistance to our clients.

If you are buying a property jointly with someone else the financial interests will be different and therefore care is needed drafting documents to protect each party. It may also be necessary for one party to provide for the other by way of a Will particularly if joint purchasers are not married and where there is a sale by joint owners who are separating and/or divorcing advice in respect of those circumstances and the division of the assets is extremely important. We have Solicitors who can advise on and prepare relevant documents relating to financial issues, Wills and matrimonial/cohabitational disputes.

Ray Borley Dunkley LLP have since 1837 been looking after local clients successfully and look upon themselves as shepherds looking after their flock although we are pleased to say you will not be fleeced at every opportunity. Our legal costs are reasonable, competitive, transparent and clear.
