At Holland Condon Solicitors, we offer clients professional legal advice when buying, selling, transfering any property. For over 80 years, our Property Solicitors have been catering to clients throughout Kilkenny, Carlow, Laois and beyond.
We want to make property transactions as easy and stress-free as possible for our clients. We keep up to date with all new property regulations and directives to ensure the smoothest transaction possible.
Why choose our property solicitors?
There are many reasons why you should choose our property solicitors, such as:
We can help you with any property transactions, large or small
We provide clients with legal advice that is up to date and specifically tailored to your case
We handle all aspects of your case to ensure a stress-free experience.
No matter what size the property transaction is, you can be assured that we will provide you with up to date, valuable and independent advice in the purchasing or selling of any type of property. We understand that buying or selling property can be stressful, and we make it our job to ensure the minimum amount of stress for our clients. We also provide general advice regarding finance and, in this regard, to ensure the firm's independence, we are not tied to any financial institution. We want to make the property transaction as simple for you and to proceed without a hitch.
We use the general term property to cover all types of legal services connected with property, to include the following:
- Buying and selling land, houses, buildings, apartments, commercial premises, public houses, hotels.
- Mortgaging or re-mortgaging houses, land, commercial property, pubs, hotels.
- Transferring sites, farms, land, buildings to children, relatives, friends or other parties that doesn’t involve money e.g. gift of properties.
One of our overriding aims in property transactions, is to ensure that all parties (including you the most important person in the transaction) are kept in the information loop – everybody connected with the transaction should be aware of the stages that have been arrived at or what is outstanding from the various parties involved in the property transaction.
The legal jargon for this area of legal practice is called ''conveyancing''. It’s a difficult area to work in but we would hope and we do strive to make it as stress-free as we possibly can. The law is changing almost on a daily basis, with new directives and regulations being passed.
It is also an area where consumers shop around for the best price. On this front, we advise all enquirers that in addition to price, you should look at how long the law firm is in business and who your friends and/or family recommend.
If you obtain quotes from any Solicitors firms, then, you should look at their total bill. You should be given their bottom line figure i.e. not just what their fees are but also what figures they give you as regards likely expenses to be incurred. Get them to give you “an all in” quote = what are you going to pay in total for the work. You should compare their total to ours.
Remember, it is not just about getting the cheapest. You should bear in mind ability and quality of service. You would not employ a doctor, surgeon or eye specialist purely on price! We believe our quotes are competitive for the type of service we give. We are also proud to say we are in business for over 80 years.
Our job is to look after you and everyone here is part of your team. But, You are the Captain!
When you engage our services, we will at the very beginning give you our written quote and a comprehensive set of guidelines, which, hopefully, may be of use to you in the transaction. We will also provide you with guidance at face to face meetings or over the phone.
We hope you will consider our firm in the provision of services to you.
Remember, we can act for you no matter where you live in the world. Although, we are Kilkenny based solicitors, with internet/emails and electronic communications, we can keep in touch with you as if you lived next door!
