  • Overview

    Our team can help you if you are a tenant or a landlord and are looking to:

    • Extend a lease
    • Extend multiple leases
    • Sell the freehold of a building, subject to long leases.
       

    Working in close association with our Dispute Resolution team, once terms have been agreed we can put in to place the necessary documentation.

    Terms can be agreed by direct negotiation between the landlord and the tenant(s). There is also legislation in place giving qualifying tenants the ability to extend their leases, acquire the right to manage the building themselves and even acquire the freehold to the building.

    We can act on behalf of the tenants or the landlord.

    Useful points to consider:

    • Instruct a suitably qualified surveyor to provide an accurate assessment of the premiums likely to be involved. We will be happy to recommend a surveyor to you
    • If you are a tenant, it can take a long time to agree terms with the landlord, particularly if you have to follow the statutory procedure. If you are looking to sell your property it may not be possible to tie in both matters at the same time
    • It may be cost effective for all leases in the building to be extended at the same time
    • If there is a mortgage on the property, the lender's consent to the transaction will be required
    • If you are a group of tenants looking to acquire the freehold of the building, you will need advice on the most appropriate vehicle for the purchase (e.g. individual names, a company, LLP).

Samuel was determined to see the entire process through and galvanised his opposite numbers in the chain when they were not doing their job properly - that much was obvious to us.

Client

At every stage in instructing TS&P (and I have used them for Residential Conveyancing, Family Law and Employment Law) I have always been very impressed with the quality of the people I have dealt with.

Client

Sam was on the ball throughout. I have never dealt with any profession where I was not doing the pushing to get things done to my timescale. This was a first.

Client

Kept up to date, questions answered immediately, general support through a stressful process.

Client

Samuel always made himself available to answer questions via email and telephone and sent me regular emails to keep me updated when he was having to chase the sellers solicitors for information.

Client

Sam and the team made me feel at ease by the way they dealt with and advised on the stresses that come with buying a house. Due to me going abroad Sam set and achieved some tight deadlines - to work for me.

Client

Most importantly, they seem to act in the interests of the client. They do what they say they will do, when they say they will do it.

Client

It’s the first time for many years we had a solicitor who was worth his money, a breath of fresh air.”

Client

As first time buyers we had lots of questions, these were all answered in a timely manner and nothing was too much hassle.

Client

Both selling and buying, which was complicated, was dealt with, with exceptional understanding.

Client

We have had the conveyancing, the making of wills and probate as the three main things and they were dealt with from different departments. I really cannot fault any of it. Although costs seem very high in these matters, I felt that we paid for the best and we got the best.

Client

We needed a law firm in Tunbridge Wells for our house purchase in 1980 when we moved back from the USA, and we chose Thomson Snell & Passmore. We have used them ever since for conveyancing, wills and trust etc.

Client

Fantastic, personalised service. Guy went the extra mile to ensure the sale and purchase of our house went through.

Client

We find TS&P friendly and approachable. They always provide an excellent service, making us feel confident that our affairs are being dealt with correctly.

Client

Throughout the process, Samuel Davies provided the most professional and impressive service, this helped to ease an often fraught and stressful situation. His advice was timely, detailed and, above all, erudite.

Client

Kim Connolly was exceptionally professional and helpful throughout what was a very challenging, fraught and quick process. I have nothing but praise & thanks for her and Jan Clark. They really went out of their way to make everything run smoothly and to the very tight timeline we were given.

Client

Rachel Taylor was at all times a calm and reassuring presence throughout the process. I felt like I was listened to, looked after and received expert advice.  

Client

We really appreciate how hard everyone at Thomson Snell & Passmore worked for us by keeping us informed of progress regularly. We would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for solicitors to aid buying/selling a house.

Client

Friendly & helpful service from day one. Exceeded expectation, thank you.

Client

TSP greatly assisted in 'smoothing' a transaction which would otherwise have been very stressful. I had a 5 star service.

Client

I was very pleased with the prompt and efficient service provided to enable me to move house swiftly and smoothly.

Client

We found the service to be thorough, professional and quickly identified issues we should be aware of.

Client

As a first time buyer, I found that I was able to easily understand the process, was kept fully informed at every stage. Excellent service, and extremely valued recommendation that I would happily pass on.

Client

First class, friendly and professional service.

Client

Our first foray into buying property in the UK was made easy and (relatively) stress free thanks to the efficiency and speed with which TS&P helped.

Client

Our solicitor was an absolute pleasure to deal with, prompt, professional and proficient - speaking proper English rather than gobbledegook.

Client

Consistency, friendliness, approachability and professionalism are testament to what customers should experience when undertaking residential conveyancing. One feels utter confidence in the process and that all angles have been covered. Exceptional service.

Kathleen Muir

Sam offered a fantastic service and nothing was too much trouble.  

Client

Ahead of the game all of the time.  

Client

Every time I needed information all the staff were on hand to explain.

Client

They were so friendly and willing to help with anything that I needed.

Client

Any time I needed to ask a question or needed any explanation about the case, James Cahan was there at the end of the phone. He answers his own phone so I felt as though I was getting a very personal service. I was never made to feel uncomfortable or a nuisance as I had felt with an earlier solicitor. Communication was excellent throughout, using emails, telephone and letters.  

Client

My case was earlier rejected by another firm of solicitors yet Mr Cahan could see that there was a case to answer. With the expert medical witnesses which he sourced, good communication and sound advice, I felt very confident in his hands that we would get a successful outcome.

Client

I have always found TS&P to be professional, very reliable and helpful.

Client

I wanted to put on record the profound appreciation we felt for your prompt service, attention to detail, dedication and professionalism.  

Client

We were all working under severe time constraints in terms of our purchase and you had great demands placed upon yourself; however, you were very able to cope with these pressures and our expectations.

I am happy to say that you firm stands head and shoulders above others in my experience.

Client

I have used them a few times in the past. I trust and find Alastair very accessible and thorough.

Client

Claire Josef was at all times professional, available for advice, was amusing when others were not behaving as they should, and she understood my jokes! The sale of our previous home and purchase of the new one turned into a tortuous process, but she kept on top of it, calming us down, pushing other parties as appropriate and standing for no nonsense, while smoothing the way.

Client

Her reponses to queries were prompt, full, and understandable. Even when she was on holiday, her colleagues, senior and junior, were fully informed and equally helpful.

Client

I felt she was very competent and approachable, answered all my questions and did not go above the agreed price for the service.

Client

Easily contactable, very helpful and professional, turned around documentation quickly, kept us informed at all times, very proactive, offered sound practical advice.

We know how quick and thorough Alastair is, so we wanted to go with the best
