Practice Areas

Residential and Commercial Conveyancing / Landlord and Tenant:

We specialise in residential and commercial conveyancing for both private and commercial clients and it has been our main area of practice since the foundation of our firm in the 1950’s, giving us first rate experience in all aspects of conveyancing.

At Greene Solicitors, we understand that buying or selling property can be a very stressful time for our clients, whether they are first time buyers or have experience in multiple property transactions throughout the country, therefore we aim to be on hand to our clients and involved in the entire conveyancing process from start to finish, to ensure that any queries or issues of our clients are addressed straight away to avoid any confusion or unnecessary stress caused throughout the process.

We pride ourselves on our responsiveness to our clients at this important time in their lives and strive to do everything we can to assist and make it a pleasant experience. Our personal care and attention to our clients throughout the conveyancing process, whether buying or selling, is incomparable, giving our clients peace of mind at all times knowing that matters are in safe hands, keeping our clients fully advised through each step of the way.

We also provide services relating to leases and licences, and have excellent and well-rounded experience acting for both Landlords and Tenants for properties of a residential and commercial nature in providing advice during the negotiation process for a new Lease, rent reviews, break clauses, termination of tenancies, recovery of possession, renunciations, variations and much more.

Litigation:

We provide services in many areas of litigation and have expertise relating to various court actions and disputes. We have experience in District Court, Circuit Court, High Court and Commercial Court litigation, offering efficient and effective services to clients in bringing and defending legal actions. We understand the stress involved for our clients with any court proceedings and work towards obtaining the best result possible for them, taking into account their individual needs.

Wills / Probate:

We have years of experience in areas of estate planning and probate law, and strive to provide the best advice for dealing with clients’ estates when they have passed. Our job is to ensure that the wishes of clients are carried out once they have passed away, and we aim to provide comprehensive and clear advice to our clients with regard to preparing Wills to avoid any confusion amongst beneficiaries and to make sure the administration of their estate goes ahead smoothly, as we understand that causing friction and difficulty amongst family members is a very real worry for our clients.

We also provide the service of administering estates of deceased family members and friends, explaining the process clearly and concisely to our clients acting as Executors/Administrators and making it as easy a process as possible, as we realise that losing a loved one is a very difficult time and sometimes administering the estate is the last thing that is on our clients’ minds. We completely understand this and accordingly we aim to help clients with the process as much as we possibly can, from the little things to the larger complex matters.

Enduring Powers of Attorney:

Creating an Enduring Power of Attorney is something we would always advise our clients to do, and is becoming more and more popular in Ireland, despite the lack of awareness about it.

Our firm have expert experience in advising in relation to creating general Powers of Attorney and Enduring Powers of Attorney. We cannot stress enough the importance of planning for the event, however unlikely, that a client loses the capacity to manage their own affairs. In contemplation of this, we would recommend that a client appoints someone to act in their interests, both personally and financially, should their mental capacity diminish.

Most people are unaware of the consequences if they, for whatever reason, suffer a mental deficiency which results in them losing the capability of dealing with their assets, including bank accounts etc. We take the time to explain to clients what exactly an Enduring Power of Attorney means, the entire process of creating such a Power, and we prepare, complete and store the relevant documentation for them in our office. Our clients can then walk away knowing that this important matter has been dealt with and they will not have to think about it again.
