Conveyancing online quote systems can offer big savings when it comes to finding the ultimate conveyancer for you.
It is really a conveyancer that you are looking for to assist you with your property sale and/or purchase? Do you need a solicitor? What are the differences between the two?
The term conveyancing solicitors is often a confusing one, since it incorporates both the word ‘conveyancer’ and ‘solicitor’. The term can make it seem as though these two things are interchangeable when in reality, they are quite different. It is more our modern day use of the English language than anything else that has confused matters!
However, what can be more confusing is that when you use an online conveyancing service to compare quotes, you could get prices from both conveyancing and solicitors’ firms. Both solicitors and conveyancers are regulated by professional bodies. For conveyancers, this is the Council of Licensed Conveyancers (CLC); and for solicitors, it is the Law Society and the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SLA). Anyone who becomes either a conveyancer or a solicitor must have the right qualifications to do so.
So far they sound rather similar, but the big difference is that a solicitor cannot work on both your case and your buyer’s case, whereas a conveyancer can. This is due to a conflict of interest, using a conveyancer is quicker and easier as they can work for both sides; and will not have to contact the other side’s solicitor in order to gather together the necessary information.
Using a conveyancing online quote service is the best way to ensure that you are getting the best price for your budget.
