Residential Conveyancing


Residential Conveyancers have fast moving processes to facilitate the demanding timescales of transactions.

At M&B we recognise that search content and service delivery are essential to our customers to help them deliver the best and most efficient service to their clients. Our standard residential bundles are designed to include all required search content but delivered in concise, structured and well-designed reports.

We also recognise that timescales in transactions are often tight, especially nearing completion when updated searches are required. We deliver over 95% of updated searches by 9am on the day that they are required giving piece of mind and certainty to a transaction.

Residential Conveyancing Services


Essential for every property transaction, we provide Legal Reports for all types of land and property, ranging from straightforward registered properties to complex unregistered land and estates or new build developments.

Our Property Enquiry Certificates (PECs) provide you with the answers that satisfy the UK Finance handbook requirements, such as whether the proper consents are in place for any building work carried out, if the property is located within a conservation area etc.


As the Land Register in Scotland matures, Plans Reporting is an even more essential aspect of modern conveyancing. It flags up any potential issues with a plan or description that would lead to it being rejected when submitted for registration.
