Conveyancing fees online can differ vastly from conveyancer to conveyancer. Some will charge more because they are members of certain bodies and have specific accreditations. Although the cost is higher, this does give buyers more confidence in using that particular firm.
What accreditations should you look for when choosing a conveyancer? Are the conveyancing solicitors you are thinking of using members of the Law Society?
The Law Society is the body that governs all solicitors within the UK and it is this body that awards many of the accreditations required. If they are not members, then it is wise to stay away from them, as, in the worst cases, they may be frauds.
Does the firm you are thinking of using for your online conveyancing have the Lexcel Accreditation?
This is known as the quality mark for excellence in legal practice management; and although not mandatory for conveyancing solicitors, it does show that the firm in question has its clients at heart. It promises an excellent level of service.
What about the Conveyancing Quality Scheme Accreditation?
Again, this is not a legal requirement for a conveyancer to have, but it does show that they are at the top level of what they do. Solicitors with this accreditation have passed specific industry testing and met with certain criteria to be shown as some of the very best in their field. If you are unsure as to whether the firm you would like to use actually has any of these accreditations, you can contact the Law Society itself to perform a check.
