Should I Get A Local Conveyancer?
It is often useful for your conveyancer to have local knowledge, but it is not essential. Conveyancing is very widely done across England and Wales, meaning that a local knowledge of your area is not specifically required by a Conveyancer. Many clients have busy lifestyles and work commitments, so communication by app, email and telephone may be more convenient and it may help to speed up the conveyancing process.
What is the difference between a Conveyancer and Solicitor?
There are different types of specialist property lawyers in England and Wales. A Licensed Conveyancer is a professional who is regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers and a Solicitor is regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. Both Licensed Conveyancers and Solicitors should be fully qualified and insured.
Should I instruct a Solicitor or a Conveyancer?
Both Solicitors and Conveyancers are specialist property lawyers and experts in their field. The key thing is to find the right lawyer for you – the main thing to ultimately consider is whether your specialist property lawyer is competent and suits your needs.
Can the conveyancing process be done online?
There are many advantages to using a conveyancer who offers an online element to their work, including saving time and have the ability to access information and updates from your conveyancer quickly. Recent technological developments have led to a rise in conveyancing mobile apps and online portals, meaning that online conveyancing services are fast becoming the norm.
