Do I need a Conveyancer?
If you’re buying, selling or remortgaging a property, then you’ll be required to go through the legal process referred to as Conveyancing. Yes, you can 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 on their panel.
That’s why the majority of homeowners instruct a Property Solicitor or a Licensed Conveyancer instead of doing it themselves. Using our trusted Conveyancers the conveyancing part of moving is fast and simple, plus it’s more affordable than you’d expect (average conveyancing fees).
What is a Licensed Conveyancer?
Licensed Conveyancers are similar to Property Solicitors, but they just specialise in property law and are regulated by the Council for Licensed Conveyancers (CLC) in England and Wales. The majority of Conveyancing Firms handle the process online through email and through phone calls. They’ve become more popular than traditional Property Solicitors as they are far less expensive (most of the time).
Using a Local Conveyancer in Northamptonshire
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.
