Don’t let sub-standard legal work jeopardise your house move


For those of us involved in conveyancing we saw a few grim years in the not so distant past, but there is little doubt that the economy is now very much on the up again.

In the UK, we have a fascination with bricks and mortar quite unlike our continental neighbours, with endless TV programmes about property feeding this national trait.

To add to this barely a week goes by without another new survey advising us of the state of the property market.
Property is a national obsession, and moving house is one of the most stressful things a person can do – yet it never ceases to amaze us how some people handle what is likely to be the most expensive purchase of their life can give so little thought to who is carrying out the conveyancing, which is the legal work involved in property purchases.

At Pearcelegal, we appreciate the expense of house moves and understand that every penny saved helps. However, the public has to be made aware that substandard quality property conveyancing is in some cases leading to sales collapsing, and at minimum giving unnecessarily huge amounts of stress to everyone involved in property chains.

We believe you get what you pay for- remember that ‘cut-price’ often means a cut down on quality. For those of us dealing in this stressful area of law it isn’t uncommon to hear of people ending up in tears because of the heartache and stress due to poor conveyancing.

We often hear of buyers going with the firm recommended by the estate agents and then left utterly exasperated because they have an unsatisfactory experience dealing purely over phone with the people overseeing what is likely the most expensive financial transaction of their lives.

At Pearcelegal we believe you can’t beat having a proper face to face relationship with an experienced solicitor who can guide you through the pitfalls associated with property, which can be complex.

It can be essential that the buyer speaks to his solicitor face to face to see the best way of overcoming issues, and this cannot be achieved in a call centre environment where often you never speak to the same person twice.

With the majority of property transactions involving six figured fees these days, trusted local law firms making sure that every detail has been looked at correctly, and acting in the buyer’s interest is still the wisest legal choice.
