The Importance of a Good Conveyancing Solicitor

Buying or selling a property is possibly one of the most important transactions you will makes, so never underestimate the importance of a good conveyancing solicitor to assist you through the process.

Selling or buying a new home can be stressful, so choose your legal firm wisely and not based solely on cost.  Paying that little bit extra to use an efficient and reputable firm could mean the difference between a successful or unsuccessful sale or purchase.

In addition, a good solicitor will help you avoid unnecessary delays, which could ultimately lead to a failed transaction!  One common cause of delay in any house sale or purchase is the chain of transactions.  If you are involved in a chain, before engaging a solicitor, always ask them what their average time is to complete a transaction.  Let them know that your transaction involves a chain and ask how that may affect the completion date.  Honesty is key, so always be wary of firms guaranteeing fast completion times, especially in a chain transaction situation.

If you are looking for a good solicitor then recommendations from family, friends or colleagues who have been through the process themselves and have had a good experience with a conveyancing solicitor is a great place to start.  However, if you not then contact William Boltwood or Victoria Waldron, who head up the Dorset Property residential sales team, who will be more than happy to recommend a good, reputable conveyancing solicitor to act for you to ensure a stress-free property transaction.
