Head of Conveyancing
Ian is a Chartered Legal Executive and the head of the Conveyancing team. He is also responsible for our Conveyancing Quality Scheme membership. Ian focuses on Residential and Commercial Conveyancing, dealing with leaseholds and freeholds. He has experience with planning agreements, and will take on work ranging from a single house to a large development, while also dealing with day-to-day matters such as roads and sewers.
Much of Ian’s work is transactional, although on occasion some ‘sleuth’ work is necessary, and he provides a professional service allowing clients to buy or sell with confidence.
Ian describes himself as down-to-earth and approachable – he tries to live up to the saying, ‘be affable, available and able’. He knows the procedures inside-out and sees himself as a problem-solver, getting the best result possible for the client.
Previously Ian worked in-house for Persimmon Homes (the property developer), so he is experienced in buying and selling new-builds, as well as the particular issues that dealing with developers may involve.

“I would just like to take the opportunity to say a big thank you to both of you for your hard work and attentiveness on my sale and purchase. Both your professionalism mixed in with fun has made the process really enjoyable. I will certainly be coming back to you and recommending you to others, now and into the future.”
Tom Meikle Sales Manager, Jordan’s Estate Agents
“Ian was competent, thorough, quick, and responsive to phone and email. He was also pleasant, friendly and cheery, with a ready laugh, and I enjoyed talking to him.”
“The service we have received from you has been faultless so far and would not hesitate to recommend to other friends and family.”
“For someone new to the city it was reassuring to have a referral to RG&Co from family and friends and I can only agree with the recommendations that you provide a speedy and efficient service.”
“Ian was very helpful, and happy for me to phone up at any time and ask for advice as and when I needed it. I never felt like I was a burden. I needed a quick completion as my buyers wanted to be in by the end of April, and Ian helped me exchange very quickly so that I could put a deposit on the rental property I feel in love with. Actually, in all honesty I couldn’t really tell you about all the hard work Ian was doing in the background, but all I know is that the process was so quick and smooth and I would not hesitate to recommend Ian at Richard Griffiths and Co to any of my friends, family and, well basically anyone! Thank you Ian.”
“Every member of RG&Co have been friendly, helpful and willing to go beyond the ‘norm’ of a law firm. Every person has been professional, personable and very helpful on a number of occasions. I would definitely recommend the firm and in particular, Ian Rhodes.”
“We instructed Ian to deal with our recent sale and purchase and would just like to say a massive ‘thank you’ to both Ian and Dan on a fantastic job. The matter was dealt with in an efficient and professional manner and we always felt kept ‘in the loop’. Ian and Dan made what is very often a stressful experience stress free (which is no mean feat!). Thank you! “
