About Us

With over 40 years experience in property conveyancing, Lewes Smith have helped thousands of people move home.

Handling residential, buy to let, rural and commercial property, acting on sales and purchases of freehold and leasehold properties.  Based in just north of Lewes, East Sussex, Lewes Smith pride themselves on their level of customer service. Specialising in conveyancing, we aim to help you or your business buy or sell property as smoothly as possible.

We offer total integrity, extensive experience, innovative solutions with a friendly approach.

We are also members of the Bold Legal Group a network of law firms throughout  England and Wales for the exchange of information and legal updates and a knowledge base .

On 18 October 2011  we were awarded CQS accreditation and have been reaccepted  each year since then..  CQS is the Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme which sets a bench mark and minimum quality standards for Solicitors who do conveyancing. 

Value for Money

We believe in charging a price for our services that is based on a blend of the time that a matter may take in terms of hours, the value of the transaction to the client, the value of the property, urgency, and complexity. We charge more so that we can deliver an exclusive service.

An average transaction can take between 6 hours to 10 hours but if complex that time is often more.

Our charges represent the above and reflect the 100 years of collective experience of the team at Lewes Smith. The legal charges will be the least stressful part of the part of the process.

We can’t promise that buying and selling will not be stressful, but we can promise that the stress won’t be caused by us.
