Why come to us for conveyancing?

When you choose our conveyancing service, you can count on professional advice from qualified legal experts. In addition, our clients benefit from the firm’s fifty years of experience in the southeast.

Please ask about fixed fee residential conveyancing, which depends on the value of the transaction. Other purchase outgoings include disbursements such as land registry fees and stamp duty.

Alternatively, we invite you to request a quotation for your property law requirements. Fees vary according to the level of experience required and the case complexity for lease extensions and related legal matters.

Our Legal Team

Residential Property Conveyancing

Our experienced staff will guide you through the purchase of your new home and, if applicable, the sale of your current property. We act for clients throughout the capital and beyond, from our base and conveyancing office in Finchley, North London.

Because every home purchase is unique, we provide a bespoke service that adapts to each individual. We aim to exceed clients’ expectations. From the outset, you can expect timely and cost-effective advice. Our team of solicitors seeks to ensure a smooth transaction with minimum stress by taking care of the legal arrangements when you move home.

Additionally, we will be pleased to check and provide impartial advice on mortgage loans. With OGR Stock Denton, you can rely on qualified, independent professionals; we are not a conveyancing shop operation with para-legal staff.

Commercial Property Transactions

Expert advice is crucial if you are acquiring commercial premises to start or expand a business. So, naturally, we will be glad to assist with the contractual arrangements for leasing or purchasing commercial premises – including negotiating new contracts or extensions. We also deal with licence applications for building alterations and fitting out.

Our lawyers have a solid background in commercial conveyancing, on which clients can depend. Of course, most transactions are straightforward. Nonetheless, if the situation demands, our solicitors are used to working on complex cases. Their wealth of experience includes protecting clients’ interests during property sales, purchases and negotiations to extend leases within the City of London.

Lease Extension

Before signing to extend a lease, it is essential to know your rights and avoid common pitfalls. During negotiations, the aim is to secure favourable terms. In particular, we advise against leasing agreements that have too few years to run. Such mistakes can prove costly in the long term.

Suppose your current lease has a little more than eighty years left before it expires. In such a case, we advise you have its terms and conditions checked as a matter of priority. Under the auspices of the Leasehold Reform Housing and Urban Development Act 1993, extending a lease by ninety years for a minimal peppercorn rent may be possible.

Additionally, it is highly advisable to check any ground rent clauses. Rising ground rents can make it difficult for leaseholders to keep the property concerned yet complicate its sale.

Furthermore, personal guarantee clauses and indemnities require careful attention. Count on our help to simplify leasing agreements wherever possible, including changes of use, alterations and the complexities of full repairing and insuring leases. In the latter case, potential obligations for repairs and maintenance mean that full surveys are vital before committing oneself. An insurance policy with adequate cover is also strongly recommendable.

Headed up by Michael Stock, the client communication is very, very good … quick responses to all emails and plenty of availability at all times. It makes a difference to have solicitors who are very responsive. This team comes highly recommended”

“I was extremely happy with the advice provided by Michael Stock and Winston Kan of OGR Stock Denton LLP. They were very responsive and provided a very professional service”

“We recently completed on our house move and could not have had a more positive experience with Tom from OHR Stock Denton (despite the highly infuriating and to put it lightly unreliable efforts from our buyers solicitors). Tom could not come more highly recommended by us.

We had decided to use OGR Stock Denton after reading positive reviews online after gaining a few quotes from different types of solicitor firm. We are really happy we went with them.

Tom was always contactable and extremely knowledgeable. There was no issue too big or too small for him to help us with and I really felt like he was there for us at every turn and honestly had our best interests. Unlike other firms, we knew exactly who was acting on our behalf and he went about thinks swiftly, with pace but throughly. Tom was friendly and gave us great advise on how to proceed when things got tricky. He seemed to genuinely care and that is rare.

Their prices are extremely reasonable considering the amount of work which went into our sale, from repeatedly chasing the rest of the chain to making sure all documents were in order, Tom was worth every single penny. The quoted amount matched what we ended up paying and the service was great value for money.”

“Winston Kan & Michael Stock of OGR Stock Denton LLP have been a great support throughout the process and Winston has demonstrated the highest levels of professionalism and genuine care throughout this difficult process. I highly recommend these lawyers, they are very attentive and honourable.”

“ We completed our home move in June, beating the Stamp Duty deadline by 4 days, and were extremely satisfied with the way the whole selling and buying process was handled by Robert Rosenberg. He was super efficient and communicated with us constantly throughout the process. We highly recommend him. and OHR Stock Denton, to anyone looking for a painless and stress-free experience. ” 

“ I would like to compliment my solicitor Ben Menachem who has dealt in an exemplary fashion with a uniquely challenging 10 days in the wake of a completion date for the sale of a commercial property in Islington North London.

After a routine exchange of contracts when it came to the purported day of completion I and my fellow beneficiaries of sale were left holding our hands out in perplexity as to why the buyers were offering excuses. What was going on? Was a key person in their banking negotiations unable to proceed possibly because of Covid 19? There were wheels within wheels of which we had no knowledge.

Suffice it to say that Mr Menachem was able to reassure me, counselling patience rather than opting for a punitive legal remedy which would have involved the sellers in steep and unnecessary legal costs. Patience won out, which proves that the law can proceed, albeit a little bumpily, even in a time of Coronavirus.”
