Online property conveyancing is just like any other business and sometimes mistakes are made and things can go wrong. Knowing what they might be in advance is a useful piece of information to have. It can mean that you can pre-empt any issues and ensure that your house sale or purchase goes smoothly.
What are some of the problems that can occur with online conveyancing?
There is a lot of paperwork to deal with during a conveyancing job. Everything must be completed accurately and in a timely manner. If there are delays with the paperwork, there could be further knock on delays with everything else in the process. So it is important that your conveyancer sends all the right documentation to the right places within the right timeframe!
Once you have completed you part of a piece of paperwork, conveyancing solicitors should do the rest, but you might want to check that they have. Some solicitors are more difficult to contact than others and this can lead to a frustrating experience. Choosing the right conveyancer at the very start can prevent this problem. Pick one that gives a named point of contact, guarantees availability to handle queries and offers several methods of communication.
Communication is a key part of any house sale or purchase. Don’t assume things are running smoothly just because you haven’t heard anything. Regular contact should be made to discuss how the case it progressing. Low quotes with hidden costs are another problem that can sometimes occur. This is never welcome and can be avoided by obtaining a fixed price quote with a price guarantee. If your solicitor cannot provide this, then you should look elsewhere.
Online property conveyancing does not have to be frustrating. Choosing the right conveyancer can save many problems.
