Completed Home Move Just 4 Weeks after Changing Conveyancers


A local estate agent got in touch with us to take on a client whose Conveyancer was delaying her property purchase and not communicating with her.

When Sally* got in touch with us at Simpson Millar, she was having a really bad experience with some Conveyancing Solicitors at another law firm.

They weren’t communicating with her at all and she was really concerned about how slow her property purchase was progressing as she was keen to move into her new home.

I have good working relationships with some of the local estate agents, so one of them called me to ask if I could take on Sally’s property purchase for her.

Normally we advise that clients don’t change conveyancers halfway through the process of buying a home, as this can delay the process more than needed. But as she really needed my help, we were happy to get started on Sally’s move.

How We Helped

As the process was already underway, I picked up where Sally’s old Solicitors had left her.

Sally noticed the difference of communication between her old conveyancers and my team at Simpson Millar right away.

I kept her in the know about where her transaction was up to throughout the entire process so she knew exactly how to plan for her move. I know this is something that Sally really valued.

Completed in Less Than 4 Weeks

Sally instructed us on 4th March and we were delighted that Sally moved into her property on 29th March.

Amazingly quick service from Rachael who helped me get my new home. Highly recommend! Sally

This isn’t always the case, as the conveyancing process normally takes much longer than 3 weeks, especially with coronavirus delays.

But as some of the legal work had already been completed the process was much quicker than usual and knowing how long Sally had waited to move, we worked hard to complete on her new home as soon as possible.

I find that keeping movers up to date and responding to queries quickly is really important and valued.
