Local Solicitors Blackhurst Budd are celebrating the latest Land Registry figures, which show they are within the top 140 firms nationally by volume of property purchases completed in 2015.

With a number of law firms moving away from residential conveyancing due to tighter controls from mortgage lenders, the Directors remain committed to growing the department and helping Fylde Coast residents move home.

“Conveyancing is a key part of our business and it’s great news to have achieved our highest position in the Land Registry rankings since we merged to form Blackhurst Budd in in 2009” said Managing Director Warren Spencer.

John Taylor, Head of Conveyancing commented “We’ve expanded the team significantly over the past twelve months, hiring experienced Solicitors and Conveyancers. As holders of both the Conveyancing Quality Scheme and Lexcel accreditations we can act for all mortgage lenders and our clients benefit from a specialist team with local knowledge of the property market in Blackpool”.

The property market in 2016 shows no sign of slowing down with house purchase mortgage approvals up 39.3% more in January than the same period in 2015.
