Property buying and selling can be stressful if the transaction is not handled by the right people. Property conveyancing is a legal process of transferring ownership title from the seller to the buyer. It involves a lot of paper work and legal formalities during and even after the deal is made. To carry out a successful transaction a person should hire a good solicitor even if he has to pay good conveyancing fees. There are cheap options available on the web, but it is not always a good idea to opt for lower charges in such critical deals. It is evident from past experiences that as the conveyancing fees become cheap the quality of the service also becomes poor. Although many big conveyancing firms can afford to give cheap services since they handle bulk amount of work on a daily basis. A good amount of research is required to get such cheap deals from reputed firms.
One should always hire good and reputed conveyancers for their transaction. There are domestic conveyancers who carry the whole process traditionally at a lower price, but lack required legal expertise in handling property deals. Any non-licensed solicitor may not have the authority to carry out all the required searches and surveys of the property. Hence, it is wise to hire a licensed and regulated property solicitor for your deal. They take care of all the legal paper work like drafting of the contracts, conducting property surveys, verifying all the documents, completion of the agreement, land registration and stamp duty activities for the client. If he misses out on any minute detail while verifying seller’s ownership rights on the land, the new buyer might have to face critical issues like land ownership disputes in the future. To avoid all these legal hassles an expert is required to carry out the entire process smoothly.
While choosing the right solicitor, conveyancing fees play a vital role. Many cheap conveyancing firms may claim numerous cost benefits and may slam the client with hidden charges after the completion of the deal. Always check for hidden charges like phone calls, letters and postage, search fees, VAT, Bank transfer fees, and Land Registry fee beforehand in the quotes. One should always go for firms working on ‘no sale no fees’ concept. This means if the deal is not successful the firm will not charge its client for any of the services provided. In all care should be taken to get not just a cost effective service, but also a good service experience from the firm.
