Discover how to increase your homes saleability and ensure you get the best price when you are selling your house with a few tips from the experts at James Du Pavey.

We can help recommend good efficient local solicitors that you can call into and visit should there be a problem. I cannot stress enough the perils of using an online solicitor which might tempt you with cheap prices and potentially false promises.
