Emma Coffey, property expert at Goldsmith Williams Solicitors, comments:

“As we move into the warmer months, it certainly is refreshing (no pun intended) to know seaside destinations aren’t unobtainable for buyers with a more modest budget.

“Like any property transaction though, it is always worth consulting an experienced property solicitor to ensure the often stressful conveyancing process goes as smooth and stress-free as possible.

“Bring on the summer!”
