Property Law

The Guernsey property department is dedicated to providing tailored solutions that meet and exceed clients’ expectations. In addition, the property department provides support to colleagues in the corporate and dispute resolution departments on real estate-related technical points of law.

The team’s areas of property expertise encompass sales, purchases, leases, licences, boundary issues, property development documentation, legal title and banking documentation.

Our planning experience means that we are often called upon to provide strategic advice, submit planning applications, deal with enforcement issues and conduct planning appeals.

In environmental law matters, we regularly provide legal opinions and assist clients with minimising and managing risk.

For private client considerations, we assist with wills of realty and personalty, codicils and Guardianship applications, whilst for housing/population queries we regularly advise on questions relating to the new Population regime.

The team has a deep understanding of the real estate marketplace and is alive to the importance of offering value for money. In most instances, a fixed fee pricing model is offered. With more complex or time-consuming matters, alternative fee models can be arranged.

We also have expertise in dealing with the most complex and difficult probate issues sensitively, quickly and efficiently. In addition to assisting local families, we also work with individuals, law firms and institutions from overseas who need to obtain grants of probate in Guernsey in order to release assets held here.
