Instructing a Solicitor
Once we have agreed a sale, you will need to instruct a solicitor to deal with the conveyancing, and they would also deal with your purchase if any.
We suggest using a recommended solicitor who we trust to deal with the progress of your sale efficiently and wisely. You will generally get what you pay for, so avoid selecting a cheap conveyancer who will be unable to provide a satisfactory and speedy service. They are likely to lack full qualifications and experience, and work on a ‘panel' basis which lacks continuity.
A good solicitor can make or break a sale. They must act in your best interests whilst gaining the co-operation of 'the other side'. They should be approachable to both you and ourselves as we would need to have regular contact and updates from them during the course of a sale.
You may have a solicitor you have used before who you know and trust, but if not, we enjoy a good working relationship with a number of experienced local solicitors who we can recommend, all of whom follow The Law Society's National Protocol for domestic conveyancing.
