Our ethos was born out of a realisation and desire by David Englehart to service successful business people based on their needs. As an aspiring young solicitor 40 years ago, David noticed that the average life of a business was 2–3 years. The pattern was to start and run a business successfully, sell it at a profit, take time to consider the next opportunity and then come back and start or buy another business. Interestingly however, the sale or purchase of small businesses and dealing with business leases was not something that solicitors actively sought to take on. Seeing this as an opportunity to create lasting relationships with local entrepreneurs David set out to provide a range of business services that business people could count on. Our comprehensive business offering and focus on client needs are as a result of these beginnings.

For Your Property

Engleharts have a wide experience in property transactions and provide a range of services that you will need when buying, letting or selling a property.

Our Services include:

  • Buying property
  • Selling property
  • Freehold enfranchisement
  • Lease extensions
  • Remortgages
  • Transfer of equity
  • Tenancy agreements
  • Landlord and tenant disputes   



We know that whether you are a first time buyer or moving within the property chain the experience can be stressful for people. One of the reasons for this stress is often uncertainty or confusion about the legal aspects of the transaction. It’s no wonder you want an experienced conveyancer who can deal with the whole process, who explains it in a way you understand and who you can trust.
