Whilst solicitors cover many areas of legal work, many people’s experience of employing a solicitors firm is for conveyancing services.
Your Estate Agent may recommend a solicitor to you who is based hundreds of miles from you and the property you are buying. Having a local solicitors’ firm such as Kerseys has many benefits. Often you may wish to meet your solicitor face to face and your solicitor will know the locality of the house you are buying personally. This may prove invaluable in being able to bring local knowledge to bear in progressing the purchase in a prompt and efficient manner. Furthermore, your local solicitor is most likely to be able to handle the legal work at a more reasonable cost than those solicitors recommended by corporate agents whose fees are often higher those of a solicitor in the high street.
Even what seems to be a relatively straightforward transaction can be complicated, so it is important to get the best advice you can. At Kerseys we have solicitors and conveyancers with many years of experience in dealing with local problems and issues and with excellent working relationships with local estate agents and solicitors.
