Do I require a Conveyancer?
When buying, selling or remortgaging a property, you’ll need to go through the legal process referred to as Conveyancing. You could do the conveyancing yourself, but it’s very complicated and very time consuming (DIY Conveyancing). If you’re having a mortgage you’re mortgage provider will usually require a Conveyancer known to them.
That’s the reason the majority of people instruct a Property Solicitor or a Licensed Conveyancer to act for them. With our trusted Conveyancers the conveyancing part of moving is quick and easy, they make it more affordable than you’d think (average conveyancing fees).
What is a Licensed Conveyancer?
Licensed Conveyancers are basically Property Lawyers, except they only specialise in conveyancing and they are regulated by the Council for Licensed Conveyancers (CLC) in England and Wales. Most Conveyancing Firms work online through email and through phone calls. They’ve become more popular than traditional Solicitors as they are far less expensive (in most cases).
Choosing a Conveyancer in Norfolk
Some people prefer to choose a local solicitor and meet face to face. These days the majority of conveyancing is done through phone and email, rarely do people meet they’re conveyancer in person. Using a local solicitor can be expensive, it’s far less expensive to instruct a nationwide online conveyancing firm that acts for properties in your area. It’s completely up to you who you choose to instruct, you do not have to use an Estate Agents ‘recommended’ solicitor.
