Online conveyancing services are a truly great way to get your conveyancing done without having to go to your conveyancer’s offices and meet them in person. It saves a lot of time and money, but if you never meet your conveyancer, why is it still important to be given a named one?
Sometimes you will instruct conveyancing solicitors to take up your house sale or purchase and be given a generic number to call and no particular person to contact if you need to speak to someone. This might be called a conveyancing team or similar. Usually in these circumstances the admin tasks will be passed to trainee conveyancers and this happens a lot with online conveyancing firms.
There is nothing wrong with using trainee conveyancers – after all, they do need to start somewhere, but it can be problematical if there is no one individual who will have all the details of your case to hand, or even in their head, when you call to discuss something. It can feel impersonal, which is never something that anyone wants when they are spending a large amount of money and when the subject is as emotive as a house move.
Not only that, but it can be a slow way to work, since your phone call might be passed around to various people until you find the right one to answer your queries. It can feel like a conveyer belt form of conveyancing, however, some people don’t mind that if they are paying a lower cost for the services.
Online conveyancing services can be impersonal and frustrating, which is why it is important to compare them before committing to one particular branch.
