Working with estate agents

Unlike most law firms and high volume conveyancing call centres, we do not pay referral fees when working with estate agents. You should always ask your estate agent if they operate a referral fee scheme for any law firms they recommend to you.

Instead, we choose to build strategic partnerships with estate agents that share our own client service values. This ensures we are working collaboratively with like-minded estate agents that, together, proactively manage property transactions to ensure they complete as quickly and as stress-free as possible.

I was very satisfied with the service I received in connection with a property sale process. In view of the stamp duty holiday, the timescales were short and I know practice staff had a heavy workload, but Rix & Kay managed the process in a timely way.

Rix & Kay were unknown to us before we moved house but their conveyancing skills met or exceeded our expectations. Thoroughly professional and communicative throughout the process, a great job.
