We handle both residential and commercial property transactions; otherwise known as conveyancing. 

This page covers residential transactions; often referred to as domestic conveyancing. Click here for commercial property transactions.
The firm is an accredited member of The Law Society Conveyancing Quality Scheme . A scheme aiming to assure clients, lenders and estate agents that firms with CQS accreditation will provide high professional standards as well as delivering excellent customer service.

Our objectives, as we are completely independent, are to provide a first-class service, place your interests first, explain everything in plain English and offer a competitive fair price. We take pride in being open about costs and aim to ensure a clear comprehensive quotation (our costs, VAT and disbursements) is provided at the outset of each transaction. 

Property transactions can be stressful and we do what we can to reduce your anxieties.  We offer face to face service at our offices in Hartlepool, Durham, Peterlee and Wingate or, if you prefer, everything can be progressed by post, telephone and email.  Our aim is to keep you fully informed throughout the transaction.

Some feeback from real clients of TMJ Legal Services: 

"Friendly welcome and service from your receptionist."     "Very efficient, great communication and very helpful."

"Receptionists were always friendly and courteous. Pauline Hunter was always available to answer my queries."

"Very happy with the services of TMJ" "I dealt with Kim [Johnson] and she was very good"  "Everything went well so just keep doing things to the same standard."

"Catherine [Donworth] made a stressful situation much easier to cope with as she was so pleasant and kept in communication at all times. I would highly recommend TMJ to anyone."  "Good value, highly competitive rates"

"Pauline Hunter has helped me through a very difficult 12 months."

"The purchase of my home was anything but straightforward.  The need to complete by the end of the holiday on Stamp Duty and the inefficiency and dilatoriness of the vendor’s solicitor placed a lot of pressure on Kim and I am extremely grateful to her for achieving a successful outcome."

"All staff were so helpful I can’t thank you enough.

"Catherine Donworth – very thorough in her work to the last detail."
