In the Property Section our Property Team is managed by Partners: Michael Doody and Jeremy Wakefield assisted by Solicitor Pauline Grocott.

Michael Doody has worked in the Law since 1964 qualifying as a Solicitor in 1978 and becoming a Partner in Wartnabys in 1979 since when he has headed the Property Department. He has always specialised in Property Law and has dealt with all types of property transaction.
Jeremy Wakefield first qualified as a Barrister and became a Solicitor in 1988, working in London before joining Wartnabys in 2003 and becoming a Partner in 2006. He deals with property work of all kinds, and his work in London has given him particular experience of residential leaseholds.

Pauline Grocott qualified as a Solicitor in 1977 and used to have her own practice in Staffordshire before joining Wartnabys in 1998. She has experience of all kinds of property work and deals particularly with residential conveyancing.



  • Residential.

    We deal with the full range of domestic property work, from small pieces of garden to large houses, freehold or leasehold, sales and purchases, mortgages, registration of title.

  • Home Information Pack (HIP)

    We can prepare a HIP for you or your Estate Agent. The cost can vary slightly depending on the location of the property and the current cost of the Local Authority search. In the Market Harborough area our current charge for a HIP is £325 inclusive of VAT, although if Wartnabys are also instructed on the sale we will only charge the cost of the search fees actually charged to us, which are currently £276.71 inclusive of VAT. Please note that these costs include the provision of an official Local Authority search as opposed to a personal Local Authority search as personal searches may not be acceptable to some Buyers or their Lenders.”


  • We deal with commercial property of all kinds, freehold and leasehold, land for development, options, mortgages, sale and leaseback.
  • We also deal with the purchase and sale of businesses of all kinds.


  • Sale and purchase of farms, farm land, with related aspects such as Single Farm Payment and letting arrangements.


  • There are many different kinds of leases, relating to residential, commercial or agricultural property, in which we act for Landlords or for Tenants.
