Residential Conveyancing England and Wales

Munro & Noble employ dual qualified solicitors who can deal with property transactions in England or Wales.

By employing solicitors qualified to practice in both Scotland and England and Wales, Munro & Noble are one of the very few Scottish legal firms to be able to offer clients a cross-border conveyancing service.

Since Munro & Noble introduced this service, clients who wish to move from one country to another within Great Britain are no longer required to engage two firms of solicitors. Using Munro & Noble for both transactions has proven to be a real benefit to our clients.

Note: In undertaking conveyancing within the jurisdiction of both England & Wales, the firm has been granted a waiver from the SRA Indemnity Insurance Rules. This waiver grants that all such conveyancing will be covered by the firm’s Scottish Master Policy. This waiver has been granted in accordance with the SRA’s powers delegated under section 79 Solicitors Act 1974.

Our solicitors were recently invited to deliver a seminar at the Law Society of Scotland on Cross-border Conveyancing.  Click here to read more.
