Buying a new home is probably the biggest decision you’ll make in your life, it is a massive investment that requires the help and assistance of a knowledgeable solicitor. These top tips will help you source the best conveyancing solicitor in your area.
Many articles mention looking for recommendations from friends, family and work colleagues, but what they fail to mention is that recent recommendations are exactly what you should be looking for. There is no point in getting referrals from previous clients who dealt with a firm many years ago, you need up to date recommendations. Many Surrey solicitors are known for their expertise in conveyancing, they also specialise in other professional services which include:
- Dispute resolution
- Wills, trusts & probate
- Personal injury
If you need help buying or selling a property, transferring equity or you’ve issues with equity release of mortgages, a conveyancing expert will offer professional assistance.
Finding a good property solicitor can be tricky, another good place to get recommendations is from the agent selling your home. They work in the industry so there is a good chance they have connections with first-class solicitors.
Although conveyancing can now be done online, there are many benefits to choosing a local firm. If there is pressure down the line, it is easier to deal with a solicitor who is based in your community rather than a faceless platform. It is reassuring knowing that if you need to submit urgent documents, you can pop down to their offices and hand them over in person.
