Overview Can we help?

Buying or selling property is an important transaction whether you are buying your first home or investing in many properties.  It can also be a stressful one.  Transactions don’t always run smoothly, people change their minds, surveys can throw up lots of issues, as can lawyers.  Property law is both complex and continually changing. That is why it is so important to choose the right legal adviser to help you.


Whitehead Monckton property lawyers have a wealth of experience in residential  sales, purchases and re-mortgages and are able to support you throughout the entire process.


We can help you with:

Whatever the transaction, we apply our knowledge, experience and judgement to guide you through the process and find solutions.  We appreciate that in many cases, knowledge of the location of a property may be crucial. Kent is our home and with members of the team in each of our offices in Canterbury, London, Maidstone and Tenterden, we have that valuable local coverage.


However, we also work both nationally and internationally for clients when the need arises. Through LawNet we are part of a network of over 80 UK law firms and we are also a member of EuroJuris offering access to over 650 firms across Europe and beyond.


We also have a notary who is able to authorise documents for foreign property transactions.
