With a 'no move, no fee' guarantee, the faster you instruct the better, as conveyancing involves various tasks that can begin very early in the process. Instructing your solicitor earlier for a sale may mean that paperwork can be prepared, even before a buyer is found, whereas if you are buying you can shave days off the process by having the details of your instructed solicitor ready when you make an offer.
Your agent will push a conveyancing solicitor, however, such referrals must be compared with other local solicitors, or better-value firms found online, as some agents choose the solicitor willing to pay the highest referral fee, not the most appropriate choice.Q.
