The benefit of a local Shotton conveyancing practice is that you can visit the firm to execute paperwork, present your ID and apply pressure on them if necessary. They will also have local intelligence which is a plus. That being said nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job. If you know people who used your friend and on the whole were impressed that should surpass using an unknown Shotton conveyancing solicitor just because they are Shotton based.
