Instruct a solicitor/conveyancer – what does it mean?
Instructing is a regularly used term in the property/conveyancing industry. To outsiders it could be confusing, what does it actually mean?
If you’re selling or buying, you’d be instructing. This basically means telling your chosen conveyancer to act for you and to start work.
So if you’ve agreed a price with the seller/buyer and you’re ready to get the ball rolling, you should now find a conveyancer and instruct them to do all the paper work and legal stuff for you.
Normally you’d receive an instruction form to complete and start the conveyancing process.
