If you’re in the process of buying or selling a property, working with a reliable and experienced conveyancer is essential to ensure a smooth transaction. A conveyancer plays a crucial role in handling the legal aspects of your property deal. To help you make an informed decision, we’ve compiled a list of important questions to ask your conveyancer.

1. What do your charges include?

Many conveyancers offer fixed fees, but it’s essential to understand precisely what the quoted fee covers. The scope of services can vary from firm to firm. Not all property transactions are straightforward, and unforeseen issues may arise during the process, potentially incurring additional fees.

Our approach: At PM Property Lawyers, we prioritise transparency. We will always inform you in advance if there are any additional fees, ensuring you’re not caught off guard. The more information you provide at the outset, the more accurate our initial quote can be.

2. Who will handle my transaction and what experience do they have?

Knowing the person responsible for your transaction and their level of experience is crucial. It’s also essential to check their availability and schedule, as you want assurance that they have the time to dedicate to your case.

Our approach: At PM Property Lawyers, we have a dedicated team of experienced property lawyers or conveyancers. While you’ll have a specific lawyer assigned to your case, the entire team stays informed about the progress of all transactions. This means there’s always someone available to assist you, even if your primary lawyer is temporarily unavailable.

3. What can I do to keep things moving forward efficiently?

While conveyancers handle many aspects of the transaction, there are stages where your input is required. You’ll need to sign and return documents and contracts at specific points in the process.

Our approach: Your conveyancer at PM Property Lawyers will guide you through your responsibilities, making the process as efficient as possible. By promptly providing the necessary documents and fulfilling your role, you can help ensure a smooth and timely transaction.

4. How will you update me and how frequently?

Communication is key throughout the property transaction process. You should have the option to choose how you’d like to receive updates, whether by phone, text, email, or even post.

Our approach: At PM Property Lawyers, we understand the importance of keeping you informed every step of the way. We offer updates through your preferred method of communication, ensuring you’re always in the loop without any added stress.

5. Are you regulated by a professional body?

Regulation by a professional legal body is a significant factor to consider when choosing a conveyancer. It’s a testament to their reliability, trustworthiness, and competence.

Our approach: At PM Property Lawyers, we are proud to be regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, underscoring our commitment to adhering to the highest professional standards in the industry.
