Leicester, UK (PRWEB UK) 12 September 2013
County Conveyancing has seen massive changes in Residential Conveyancing in the UK in 2013.
With new regulations in the UK legal marketplace new entrants are targeting high volume work such as conveyancing.
Conveyancing takes place when you buy, sell or re-mortgage any property. Conveyancing is when the ownership of property or land is transferred from one party to another.
The Conveyancing process begins when an offer has been accepted on property and the two parties have exchanged details normally via an estate agent.
The entrance of non-legal big brands are changing the market’s expectation of price, value and service.
As the average price of conveyancing is forced down by the new competition the bucket shop/ factory volume, the new entrants are having to cut corners on the type of staff dealing with the conveyancing. Also they are using overseas companies in India to process and answer customer questions via large call centres.
Here are our top 8 tips to take the stress out of buying, selling or remorgaging your residential property:
1. Always get a fixed fee quote giving you the best value service
2. Insist on “no move, no fee” promise in writing
3. Get a guarantee that they won't delay the conveyancing transaction
4. Finding trusted conveyancing solicitors when selling or buying a house is so important, don’t cut corners with possibly the largest sale or purchase of your life
