Mike Garratt.

Senior Conveyancer.

I joined Simpson Jones Solicitors when it opened its doors in 2010. During this time I have worked with all the staff and partners here to provide excellent legal advice in Property transactions for all our clients.


I am a Conveyancer of over 30 years standing and during this time have dedicated myself to ensuring that my clients have the best legal advice available and to make sure the job is completed to everyone’s satisfaction. I provide residential property advice including residential sales, purchases and remortgages for individuals who are looking for a new home to clients who are looking to increase their property portfolio with buy to let properties.


My experience over the last 30 years has come from dealing with all types of residential property transactions from advising first time buyers to “old hands” in the residential property market. I have a great relationship with local agents, surveyors and brokers so that we can all work to get the job completed to the client’s satisfaction. I pride myself in going that extra mile for the clients and cutting through the legal jargon to give you down to earth, understandable advice.

How can I help you?
  • Advice on sales and purchases of residential property.
  • Advice on new mortgages and remortgages.
  • Advice on transfers of equity.
  • Advice on joint tenancy and tenancy in common.

I enjoy an evening out with good friends and am a lifelong Derby County Supporter (or should that be sufferer!!).
