How do you know what you will get, when you instruct your Conveyancing Solicitor to act for you when you move home.

Strange as it may seem, all you have to do is ask.

You will get a good indication of how your Conveyancing Law firm will deal with you from your first contact with the firm.

Not all Conveyancing Solicitors are the same: Some people like to deal with a Solicitor all the time, others are happy with a case handler or being dealt with by a team of people.

To help you understand why some Conveyancing Solicitors are different, you should have a list of frequently asked questions so you can decide if the particular firm of Conveyancing Solicitors are for you.

Here are 15 questions to ask your Conveyancing Solicitor before you instruct them on your sale or purchase

1. What do you charge?
2. Will there be any hidden extras?
3. How do you Bill?
4. What are your terms?
5. Who will be looking after me?
6. How often will we need to meet?
7. Where do we meet?
8. Do you guarantee your work?
9. What will you do for us?
10.What will we need to do for you?
11. Can you tell what it is going to cost, now?
12. What steps are necessary before we can start working together?
13. Where do I go to get my service issues addressed?
14. Do you have a website so we can see a little more about you?
15. Do you bite? (Just kidding on that one)

There is so much information already available on the internet that a Google search for Conveyancing Solicitors (in your area) will give you a better understanding of how one firm can give you more than another firm.

This Blog has been adapted from our home buying and selling guide  "Don't even think about buying or selling your home until you've read this book -it will save you time & could save you thousands" ​ deals with what type of surveys are available and a cautionary tale to boot. ​

We have used all our experience as top notch, quality solicitors in Chipping Sodbury, Bristol to bring to you a definitive guide to buying and selling your home.

Over the next month post or so we will post a Chapter from the book every other day.
