Background

Residential Property

Our award-winning property team can help you with all aspects of residential property ownership and finance. We understand that for many people their property is their most expensive purchase, their most valuable asset and the centre of their family life.

It can also be the focus for stress and uncertainty, especially in the run up to a major transaction. That’s why we aim to take the heat and the jargon out of residential property transactions, providing clear and timely communication and a friendly as well as expert service across all property-related matters.

We know that our clients across Cornwall and Devon appreciate this personal approach. Their feedback has led to us winning a host of customer service awards at the ESTAS Conveyancer Awards and to Coodes residential property team being recognised as one of the best in the South West.

Local expertise, national reach

Our residential property team have deep knowledge of the unique markets in Cornwall and Devon. Our conveyancing solicitors all live and work in communities across the region, operating out of our offices in St Austell, Truro, Falmouth, Newquay, Launceston, Liskeard, Penzance and Holsworthy. This local knowledge and feel for the regions translate to an insightful and personal face-to-face service, in a location near to your work or home. Of course, we also regularly advise residential clients on property transactions outside the South West, either helping new arrivals make the best possible start in the region or helping local clients to execute deals in other parts of the UK.

Coodes’ residential property team is among the strongest in the region. We are members of both local and national conveyancing bodies including the Conveyancers Association and The Bold Legal Group. These memberships enable us to provide advice and insight that takes full account of the latest developments in property law and the trends and themes that are shaping both local and national markets.

Our conveyancing service combines the latest technology with exceptional standards of personal service. That means that you will never be passed on to a call centre. Instead, we use the latest IT systems to process matters as quickly as possible, avoiding unnecessary hold ups and helping you close the deal.

Residential property fees

We recognise that clients are nervous about the legal costs of property transactions. That’s why we offer complete transparency and clarity about our conveyancing and other fees and to provide estimates in advance.

Whatever your property-related concern, contact us to discuss your needs and for an estimate of costs.

Client Testimonials


We could not have asked for a better service. Coodes were quick and efficient, easy to deal with and took as much of the pain out of the process as was possible - the best conveyancing service we have experienced by far.

My residential sale was concluded despite some serious challenging factors outside of Coodes control. Both my conveyancer and her assistant were attentive and supportive to my client needs and approach.
