In simple terms, instructing as soon as possible is wise, as conveyancing involves a number of tasks that can be carried out immediately. Early instruction
of a firm for a purchase enables you will the details of your Powys solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, relevant information can be sourced sooner (this is particularly true for leasehold properties).Q.

Nevertheless solicitors must obtain relevant indemnity cover in order to protect you in the event of oversights made by the lawyer.
