The cost of not doing it properly

When selecting your conveyancing solicitor, it can be tempting to go for the cheapest quote. Bear in mind the following:

  • Conveyancing is about co-ordinating information, decisions and people - often to strict deadlines
  • Transactions can easily fail because of a lack of proactive effort, resulting in wasted costs for buyers and a potential future loss of value for sellers forced back to market
  • Poor professional and market knowledge can easily lead to unexpected delays, resulting in additional direct and ‘knock-on’ costs
  • Anxieties and distractions mount if you have to chase your conveyancer

A proactive approach combined with genuine expertise makes a huge difference to the successful outcome of a property transaction
