Buying and Selling Your Home

Moving house is a stressful and demanding time for everyone. Our House Moving team will keep you informed of developments every step of the way to make sure buying your home is as stress free as possible.

Buying a house is probably the largest purchase you will make during your life so it is important to get advice from a qualified lawyer to help you avoid possible problems and to protect your interests at each stage of the process, from making an initial offer to moving in.


Administration of Estates

Trying to sort out the affairs of a family member or loved one after they have died is a daunting task at what is a very stressful time. Our team can provide you with all the advice you need regarding administration of estates.

If you have been appointed as an Executor under a Will or are taking on the role of Administrator on an intestacy (when the deceased did not leave a Will) , you will be undertaking a task that brings with it a host of responsibilities and obligations. These include but are not limited to:-

Protecting assets until they are sold or transferred to beneficiaries.
Finalising all matters pertaining to Inheritance Tax, Income Tax and Capital Gains Tax.
Preparing and submitting an application to the Court for a Grant of Representation (Probate or Letters of Administration) .
Ensuring all debts and liabilities of the estate are settled.
Distributing the estate in accordance with the deceased’s Will or according to the Rules of Intestacy.
We offer the full range of services and legal advice that will allow you to deal with every aspect of the administration of an estate, confident in the knowledge that you are fulfilling your obligations as a Personal Representative.

  • I would recommend this business

We were initially approached at Tesco by a supposed legal adviser who came to our house offering 'free legal advice'. We then went to see a proper solicitor who explained everything in detail and made us feel confident that they were the experts and the other company were just salespeople with limited legal knowledge. Do it once do it right.

When a person has been assessed as lacking mental capacity and does not have in place an appropriate Lasting Power of Attorney, the Court of Protection will often become involved. Most commonly, when we think of mental incapacity we think of debilitating conditions such as Alzheimer's Disease or Dementia which often affects us as we get older. Capacity can, however, become impaired at any stage of life for instance, if you were to be involved in an accident or even a result of injuries sustained at birth.


Commercial property is an important consideration for many businesses, however, the legal procedures surrounding business premises are not always straight forward. In our experience, those who seek legal advice early avoid the pitfalls and extra expenses that can be associated with commercial property transactions. As one of the largest and most highly regarded commercial property departments in the area, the team at Fraser Dawbarns provide high quality guidance and support on a wide range of commercial property matters.

Many couples can save their relationship, and we can advise you of organisations that can help you and how to contact them.
