Conveyancing can be a protracted process if everyone in the chain is not continually pushed to complete the legal work in a timely fashion. Therefore, essential to fast conveyancing and reducing the duration of the process is to contact a proactive and experienced solicitor. There are several things you, as the buyer, can do, including calling or emailing your solicitor regularly, chasing them if you suspect any delays, answering any queries raised by your solicitor quickly, and getting your mortgage offer in place. Homeward Legal’s team of solicitors are different from other firms, using state-of-the-art systems and communicating with everybody in the chain. Call our property team on 0800 038 6699 for a fixed-fee quote.
