Moving home is an expensive business and it’s only natural that you’ll be looking for ways in which you can cut the cost. But one place where you shouldn’t cut back is conveyancing services.
A recent article for What Mortgage explored the role of a conveyancer and explained why they’re such an important part of the home buying and selling process.
Director of strategy at the Council for Licensed Conveyancers Stephen Ward explained that, in simple terms, conveyancers deal with the “legal stuff” relating to the sale or purchase of a property. However, he stressed that often this process is far from straightforward.
One of the most important things to remember is that a conveyancer is working in your interests once you hire them, unlike an estate agent who will be liaising between the buyer and the seller.
Conveyancing solicitors spend time looking at the legal documents relating to a property to ensure that there are no problems that could hurt you further down the line as the buyer.
“This is vital – the danger for buyers is that, without doing this work, problems may not show up until you want to sell the property several years later and find that you can’t,” Mr Ward asserted.
An article for the East Anglian Daily Times also highlighted the value of choosing a local firm of conveyancing solicitors to represent you. The news provider noted that their local knowledge can prove invaluable when you’re buying a home.
