The aim of Lees Solicitors has always been to provide a first class legal service to all clients. We have been practising from Hamilton Square since 1889 when George Frederick Lees founded the firm, originally named G F Lees. Peter Lees, the last in the family line to be a solicitor, retired early from practice in April 2003 to spend more time with his family.
"I would just like to thank Jenniffer Skillen for her help, support and valued advice during my case. She acted in a most professional manner in all her advice and I would not hesitate in recommending her and Lees to others."

Despite recent news that the UK housing market is facing a period of uncertainty following the vote to leave the European Union, there have been reports that the market has been unexpectedly buoyant.
A home equity release mortgage or ‘lifetime mortgage’ is a mechanism that lets over 55 year olds take advantage of the equity (cash value) tied up in property. This means you can take a mortgage against your home in order to raise funds for beneficiaries or simply maintain a steady income. Usually, it is permitted to borrow up to 60% of the value of your property. The mortgage and Interest of the loan are required to be paid back when you pass away or go into permanent care.
