Recently been in touch with my conveyancing solicitor in Hale Barns who acted for me 18 months ago requesting a conveyancing costs illustration based on the same type of house move (a leasehold premises and a freehold property) of almost identical values with a home loan from Virgin Money. It looks as though am now being charged twice the amount. Stick with what I know or should I try and find a cheaper online property lawyer?

As someone not used to conveyancing in Hale Barns what’s the number one tip you can give me for the ownership transfer in Hale Barns
Not many law firms or advisers will tell you this but conveyancing in Hale Barns and elsewhere in England and Wales is often a confrontational experience. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there is an abundance of opportunity for friction between you and others involved in the legal transfer of property. E.g., the vendor, property agent and sometimes the lender. Choosing a law firm for your conveyancing in Hale Barns should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONE person in the transaction whose interest is to act in your legal interests and to keep you safe.
On occasion a third party with a vested interest may try and sway you that it is in your interests to do things their way. For example, the property agent may claim to be helping by suggesting your conveyancer is dragging his heels. Or your mortgage broker may advise you to do something that is against your lawyers advice. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties in the conveyancing process.
