When do we need to speak to a solicitor to act on our sale?

A.

With a firm offering a 'no move, no fee' conveyancing quote, instructing as early as possible is better, as the legal work can commence very early in the process.

Experienced buyers will tell you that instructing a communicative property lawyer is crucial to moving faster. There are, in addition, a range of tasks you as the purchaser can also do, such as, keeping in regular contact with your property lawyer, answering any queries raised by your property lawyer as soon as possible and if you intend to get a house survey, doing so as early as you can.
