The conveyancing process in Penzance will sometimes be exposed to significant delays. Homeward Legal know how distracting such delays can be and endeavour to minimise the effect of these delays if it can be achieved. There are numerous reasons for delay, such as slow solicitors acting for the other side.Q.
The agent will be able to pressure a law firm to handle your conveyancing they refer a large volume of work to, and can therefore exert pressure on your behalf. These referrals must be compared with other local solicitors, or better-value firms found online, as the agent may prefer to suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best solicitor for your needs.Q.
A degree of remediation can often be possible, and a local provider such as Celtic Turf, Carnyorth, St. Just, Penzance, TR19 7QD may be able to provide more detail.Q.
Conveyancing searches conducted by your Penzance solicitor should also include a far more in depth search (Landmark) if it is felt necessary.
