Considering that house purchase is the largest acquisition that most people may be involved with in a lifetime and the given legal complexities one should be able to find appropriate help.
However, it is questionable just how effective some Conveyancing Solicitors are considering that they often charge Premium Rates for their services, many UK conveyancers are notorious for providing a slow and overpriced service. Finding the right Conveyancing Professional is key because they can, Speed up your transaction, Reduce the chance of the deal falling through, and Make sure the process is as stress-free as possible.
Local or Family Solicitors may not be the most effective Conveyancers available, many cover a wide range of legal territory making a speciality a problem for them, they will do the work but charge a lot of money for the privilege, you can do better. There is no reason to limit yourself to ‘family’ solicitors.
Don't go the other way and base your choice purely on price. The cheap online ‘bucket-shop’ solicitors that you'll see advertised are often overworked and can slow the progress of your move (or worse).
Don't automatically go with the firm that your estate agent recommends, estate agents make a great deal of money by passing clients onto a ‘preferred’ solicitor. Also, there are in-house "Factory conveyancing" operations whose staff may be teams of inexperienced "legal executives" with little or no training or communication skills. Getting hold of the same person twice may be impossible.
Buyers and sellers will benefit if by finding a conveyancer that provides you with the personal service and a single point of contact. Especially when the person is qualified to conduct Conveyancing and has the sole purpose to secure the best outcome for their clients.
Don't even consider a solicitor that charges by the hour. Take the trouble to find someone that offers a "fixed-fee" and "no-completion, no-fee" service - this will save you a lot of money.
Due to recent changes in the Conveyancing Industry the stranglehold has been broken allowing prospective clients a choice of Conveyancing Legal Practices, rather than the redundant belief that using a local/family Solicitor is the only source of professional support.
