What are the benefits of an online solicitor against a high street firm?
Many commentators and bloggers have suggested that you get so much more from online conveyancers because they have access to state-of-the-art applications to manage their cases and use the latest communication technology.
However, there is nothing stopping high street conveyancing firms from adopting such technology. And they will have a wealth of experience and knowledge of the local area that they can bring to bear on your transaction.
It all comes down to what they offer and how they go about their business. You should get a selection of quotes and read through the terms and conditions in detail to understand the comparisons between what they offer and how much they are going to charge you for the service.
If you choose Homeward Legal, you not only get an experienced proactive solicitor but also access to the latest technology and local knowledge. Call us now on 0800 038 6699 to find out more.

That said, a property lawyer is in charge of a long list of exercises including chasing outstanding papers or dealing with requisition on os1 some of which need a skilled professional. In any event however, firms and their solicitors are required by their regulator to possess the correct insurance to shield you from any professional errors on the part of the solicitor.

Is the buyer or seller responsible for the searches?>
It is you, as the buyer, who is responsible for checking that all is well with the property you are buying. This is why your conveyancing solicitor will order a set of standard searches (Local Authority, Water and Drainage, Environmental, and Chancel Repair – these are also the searches requited by your mortgage lender), plus additional searches dependent on the property, recommendations from the surveyor in the survey report, and the location and history of the area.
