What to consider when choosing a solicitor

Choosing the right solicitor

Once you have agreed a price for your property, you will need to instruct an experienced conveyancing solicitor to take care of your property transaction. 

This might be the first time you have ever used a solicitor. It is important to make the right choice to ensure your move goes to plan and isn’t held up in any way.

Things to consider:

  • Check out reviews from previous clients. This will give a good indication of the level of service you can expect to receive.
  • Make sure the quote you are given includes a comprehensive breakdown of all payments you will be required to make. Nobody likes hidden charges!

  • Make sure your solicitor is recognised by The Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Membership demonstrates high standards of technical expertise and client service, which means if complications arise, you’ll be in safe hands.
  • Ask for the name and contact details of the solicitor who will personally be dealing with your move. Being able to speak to your solicitor and not being passed from pillar to post is essential if you are to minimise the stress of any move. 

By choosing Beswicks Legal you will have absolute peace of mind that the above points have been considered and you are in the best possible hands.

How Does It Work?

Step One

When you instruct Beswicks’ conveyancing team, the first thing we will do is contact your seller’s solicitor to let them know that we are acting for you and to request a copy of the draft contract and other important documents.

Step Two

We examine the contract and supporting documents and order your searches and then go back to the other party’s solicitor with any questions that we might have.

Step Three

If you need a mortgage, you now need to ensure this is in place. When your mortgage is approved your mortgage lender will send a copy of the mortgage offer to us so that we can go through their conditions to make sure they are complied with.

Your lender will arrange a mortgage valuation, which is for their purposes only to make sure the property is worth the same or more than the sum you are borrowing. It is always a good idea to carry out a survey of your own to make sure you have a complete picture of the condition of the property that you are purchasing.

Step Four

Once all questions have been answered and search results and mortgage offer received we will invite you into the office to sign the contract papers. Alternatively, we can post or email the papers to you for signing. We will also provide a comprehensive report outlining all pertinent points that you need to be aware of.

Once you have signed your papers and a completion (moving date) is agreed we will seek your authority to exchange contracts and legally commit you to your purchase. Exchanging contracts is actually a telephone conversation between the seller and buyer’s solicitor and you pay a 10% deposit when the contracts are exchanged.

We then request your mortgage advance from your mortgage lender to ensure we receive it in time for you to complete your purchase. You need to place your buildings insurance on risk from the date contracts are exchanged unless you are buying a newly built property from the developer.

Step Five

On the completion date we send the purchase monies to the seller’s solicitor and when they acknowledge receipt your purchase is complete.

The solicitors acting for the seller will authorise the estate agents to release the keys to you. You can then collect the keys from the estate agent and begin the process of moving in.
