We are specialists, a conveyancer is usually better value than a solicitor, as we specialise solely in property matters rather than other legal matters.
According to the Legal Ombudsman, one in five complaints made to them are now about residential conveyancing, which makes it the most complained about area of law. With house sales increasing in volume this in turn puts pressure on lawyers to rush through purchases to keep up with demand, which we worry reduces the quality of service, especially among those “low cost” lawyers, who have to keep their costs and time to a bare minimum.
Bearing in mind that a property is most likely the most expensive purchase you will ever make, is this really a good idea to buy cheap? From experience, a low priced property lawyer may well sell themselves with a low fee, but then many add on costs for so called “extras” that other lawyers would have as part of their standard fee.
