We are highly trained in fraud prevention and have excellent systems in place to ensure that your money is kept safe and secure.
It’s our aim to ensure that your purchase progresses as smoothly as possible. Experience has shown us that when there are lots of parties involved this can be tricky, however our outstanding client communication and teamwork, means that you will always have someone to speak to.
We will be realistic about the timescales, but we will endeavour to work to the dates you require and keep you updated as much as possible. We pride ourselves on a personal service and appreciate that buying a home can be a stressful time.
"John Breeze is very approachable and professional. I was kept well-informed with regular updates and clear explanations as my case progressed. I cannot adequately express my gratitude to him for guiding me through each step of the legal process...I would not hesitate to approach Bell & Buxton should I require legal advice again."

"David Williams was outstanding in his attention to detail, clarity and efficiency. I have never had such exemplary service in dealing with solicitors."
"Professional, considerate and willing to go the extra mile."
"Mary Butler provided reassuring and knowledgeable advice in difficult circumstances."
“My law firm doesn’t offer a contentious trusts and probate service but we receive a significant number of enquiries which I try to help with. I have worked throughout the country, including for some other good Yorkshire firms, and I have always been aware of Bell and Buxton’s nationally renowned for your expertise in the field Contentious Trusts and Probate. It’s for this reason that I always refer clients to them for expert legal advice.”
