Whether you are buying or selling, the sooner you instruct a conveyancing lawyer, the better. Some solicitors’ practices suggest delaying instruction until an offer has been firmly agreed, but doing so will put you at a disadvantage compared with better-prepared buyers, or if your buyer decides to pull out due to the delays incurred. There are several conveyancing tasks that can be started immediately, and if you appoint a solicitor offering a fixed conveyancing fee, it won’t affect the bill when they are appointed.
