When buying, selling or gaining equity in a property, choosing the solicitor you'll be working with will be one of the most important and delicate decisions. If you don't want to lose money and time because of an unreliable solicitor, make sure to choose carefully.
There are no set rules on how exactly you should go about finding a solicitor, but there are some general guidelines you should follow.
Researching solicitor firms is the key to finding out if they do a good job in dealing with your type of case. Don't hesitate to drop by their office, located in the city centre or close to where you live or work. This way not only will you get more information on solicitor firms, you'll also get a feel of the solicitor's working habits.
When looking for a solicitor, it is important to find one who is specialised in conveyancing - the legal process of transferring property from one person to another. The solicitor will carry out all the necessary tasks, such as searches and negotiations on your behalf.
The solicitor should also be skilled in dealing with property transactions in your neck of the woods so that they know about local council tax, mortgage lenders and legal obligations of different types of property you might want to buy or sell. Some solicitor firms handle a big number of cases and may not be able to provide the personal service you need. Others specialise in more complex property law and can give you tailored advice.
