Buying & Selling Property

It is often said that buying and selling property can be amongst the most stressful experiences in your life – but it doesn’t have to be so.

Proactive conveyancing solicitors

As conveyancing solicitors, the secret of our success is that we are:

  • Proactive – we are dedicated to keeping your transaction moving
  • Knowledgeable – we foresee potential pitfalls and deal with them
  • Efficient – we use technology to support not replace our high service standards
  • Secure – we are early adopters of best practice in cyber security

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

Janet Rhodes-Blangsted explains the benefits of using Harrowells’ approach to providing a proactive conveyancing service that keeps you in the loop at every stage; she also mentions our strong track record in securing regional and national awards in recognition of our outstanding approach. 

Your matter will be looked after by a solicitor or licensed conveyancer or a very experienced conveyancing executive and all of our residential conveyancing staff deal exclusively with property transaction work. They regularly attend training and development courses concerning property law, cyber security, anti-money laundering and other relevant developments in the residential conveyancing market.
