Once you have decided on the property that you want to buy, you will to need instruct solicitors to undertake the conveyancing on your behalf. This is often an intense period of time. You are getting your head around the practicalities of moving and have an action list as long as your arm. You might be in a complex chain and be dependent on others before you can progress.
Your solicitor will know the law inside and out, that’s a given. What is really important is your solicitor is both accessible and communicative. That they know the law is a given. Good local knowledge and contacts can also be helpful to resolve issues before they become potential deal breakers. I have a network of solicitors and would be happy to put you in contact with those appropriate to your circumstances and you can decide after meeting if you want to instruct them.
