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.

“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.”
