How to find a good conveyancing solicitor?
Buying a property is often the biggest purchase you will make in your lifetime so it is vital that you find the right conveyancing solicitor. Simply typing Bournemouth conveyancing solicitor may not be enough.
There is a big difference between a good and bad conveyancing solicitor and often word of mouth is helpful. It is wise to check the firm’s website for testimonials and to see who specifically to ask for within the firm.
Obtaining a few quotes is a good idea, however choosing the cheapest quote may not lead to the best service.
Also you need to be aware of fixed fee conveyance costs as this may not include all the necessary searches and could mean that the initial quote is not accurate.
Many firms offer an initial free meeting which is a good opportunity to meet the conveyancer who will be handling your sale or purchase. It also provides an informal forum for you to ask any initial questions you may have.
It is important to remember that the lower the cost the more cases the conveyancor may have on at a certain time. Seemingly cheaper quotes may mean your file is one of 100 delegated to one person.
So, the key points on how to find a good conveyancing solicitor are;
A higher price may command a more personal service
Arrange an initial free meeting (many firms offer this)
Decide on how you would like to communicate with your lawyer (by telephone, email or letter or would you prefer to meet them face-to-face)
Low cost can be low service so always find out what is included in the overall price
