Conveyancing work should be all about stress-free smooth transactions. So, what makes a transaction slow and long winding? Often, frustrations arise from estate agents and the mortgage lender. Contrary to popular belief, conveyancing solicitors do not have a duty to mortgage lenders, surveyors or estate agents. Also, they have no power over the buyer or seller’s affairs. But a good conveyancing solicitor knows the importance of liaising with external entities in order to get a smooth, swift, stress-free transaction.
As soon as you make an offer for a property, you need to choose your conveyancing solicitors because they are the ones who are legally equipped and specialised in overseeing the transfer of the property’s ownership. Conveyancing solicitors are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and are also licensed conveyancers. You should expect high standard conveyancing practices from any solicitor. But friendliness, approachability, thinking outside the box and being proactive are personality traits that you want to look for in a conveyancer.
You will probably find that conveyancers are cheaper than a solicitor. It’s no surprise that solicitors are more expensive; on the other hand, they’re more than likely more cost effective. This is because they are trained to deal with complex issues that may arise in a transaction. Solicitors have expert knowledge beyond conveyancing work. For instance, if you happen to be separating from your partner or spouse, a solicitor will be better equipped to deal with the transaction.
When you choose conveyancers, go on their website and check for services offered. You should be able to identify some of the services you need for your property transaction. You want to contact them and see how they respond to you – their manners are important because you’ll be dealing with that until the day of completion.
