How important is it to choose a reputable solicitor?
Solicitors are a crucial part of every house sale so it's extremely important, even more important than choosing an estate agent or your mortgage advisor. Asking for recommendations from friends or family is a really good idea. It’s also vital that you choose someone local to you, so that if you need to visit them you are able.
We strongly recommend that you contact a solicitor by phone and email to see how quickly they respond. Low communications can cause a lot of problems in a house sale, so knowing that your solicitor will make it a priority to communicate quickly is really important before you get started. When choosing a solicitor it's more important to know how quickly they communicate, rather than the price they charge.
