Bespoke residential property services

Rix & Kay has one of the strongest residential property teams in the South East with a team of ten lawyers and professionals providing residential property services from our offices in Brighton & Hove, Seaford, Sevenoaks and Uckfield.

Rix & Kay have been helping individuals and their families buy and sell properties across Sussex and Kent for more than 75 years. The Team regularly advise individuals from all walks of life from first time buyers and property investors, to those looking to down size as they approach retirement.

The team have a deep understanding of the technical and emotional aspect of the home buying and selling process and have recently published a detailed thought leadership report that examines the role of estate agents.
