If you’ve experienced a house move, you’ll agree that it’s one of the most stressful and challenging life events that you can go through. That’s why it’s so important to choose the right Conveyancing Solicitors, as they can guide you through the whole process and take most of this stress away.

Due to the costs attached to buying a house, many people who are buying and selling a house will shop around for the cheapest Conveyancing quote. But without comparing like-for-like Conveyancing quotes, this can prove to be a poor and costly decision in the long run.

Why Instruct our Conveyancing Solicitors?

Here are just a few reasons why it’s well worth not cutting corners and why you should always use experienced Conveyancers and Conveyancing Solicitors.

File Handler

It’s usually the case that cheap conveyancing means a high volume workload. You may be told that your file will be dealt with by a ‘case handler’, but if this happens, you must proceed with caution. Ask them to confirm that you’ll receive the same individual Conveyancer throughout, not a conveyor belt of people causing confusion, duplication of work and stress for all.

Quality of Service

Many online conveyancing services advertise the fact that you’ll never have to meet them in person and that all correspondence will be dealt with either online, or by email or post. They’ll refer clients online to access documents or for updates on their file. But many people consider this to be too impersonal.

At Simpson Millar, we firmly believe in the importance of meeting with our clients, offering that personal service and putting a face to a name.

Obviously, there may be times when clients cannot physically get into one of our offices and in these circumstances, we can arrange a telephone appointment to discuss and report any important legal issues relating to their transaction.

Other Legal Issues

If our clients have queries relating to any legal issue outside our Conveyancing expertise, such as a school admission appeal or getting a loved one assessed for CHC Funding or making a Will, we can refer them to our colleagues in other departments.

Hidden Fees

There will always be Conveyancing firms who will offer “great deals” on legal fees and will quote an attractive fixed fee of, say, £299 +VAT. However, they’ll almost certainly have extra costs hidden in the small print and clients will find themselves being hit with a much larger bill at the end of the transaction.

It’s amazing that some clients will ring around for the cheapest Conveyancing deal and make a decision based on £20-£50 price difference and maybe instruct a Conveyancer hundreds of miles away where there will be no personal attention. This brings us onto the next point.

Locality

You want to choose a Conveyancer or Conveyancing Solicitor who is close by and familiar with your area. Simpson Millar have 11 offices in England and Wales, in Bristol, Cardiff, Kingston-upon-Thames, Lancaster, Leeds, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Morecambe and Southport.

So in summary, choose wisely. Here at Simpson Millar, we price our Conveyancing services to compete against the high volume conveyancers. But we mainly rely on excelling in the level of service we provide, so people will recommend us to someone who is buying or selling a house.

We aim to provide a personal Conveyancing service and have an efficient system in place, as well as the legal knowledge and resources that will be vitally important throughout the entire Conveyancing process.
