CCORDING to a re­cent Ro­mans’ poll, 51% say speed is more im­por­tant than price or ser­vice when choos­ing a con­veyancer. “Con­veyanc­ing is an es­sen­tial as­pect of buy­ing or sell­ing a home as it’s the le­gal process of trans­fer­ring prop­erty from one per­son to an­other,” said Peter Scott, se­nior man­ager at Ro­mans Ger­rards Cross.“How­ever buy­ers and sellers are of­ten in a rush to choose one and end up run­ning into all man­ner of prob­lems.”

Sev­eral in­dus­try ex­perts have re­ported that the surge in prop­erty trans­ac­tions this year has re­sulted in a short­age of avail­able con­veyancers, cre­at­ing long de­lays and slow­ing down the mov­ing process. Choos­ing the wrong con­veyancer or so­lic­i­tor can re­sult in fur­ther de­lays due to in­com­plete pa­per­work and lack of com­mu­ni­ca­tion.

So what should you be look­ing for when choos­ing a con­veyancer? Here are a few im­por­tant point­ers. Choos­ing a con­veyancer who will keep you in­formed through­out the process will save you pre­cious time and en­sure you know how much pro­gres­sion has been made on the sale or pur­chase of your prop­erty. Your ded­i­cated Ro­mans ‘move man­ager’ will also li­aise with your so­lic­i­tor and pro­vide you with reg­u­lar up­dates. Check quotes in­clude ev­ery­thing; some con­veyancers don’t in­clude dis­burse­ments (sums paid by your lawyer to third par­ties such as search fees, Land Registry fees and stamp duty) or VAT. If the cost looks too good to be true, it prob­a­bly is. you’d have to pay your con­veyancer if the un­avoid­able hap­pens.

Whether you’re buy­ing or sell­ing, Ro­mans’ panel of ex­pe­ri­enced le­gal ex­perts will help you move be­tween prop­er­ties with as lit­tle stress as pos­si­ble.They fo­cus on a quick com­ple­tion, so you can get on with mov­ing into your new home.
