Is it better to use a local solicitor or an online conveyancer for my move in the North East?

Online conveyancers can usually act on your behalf no matter where they, or their head office is based. That’s because they work remotely, and most things are done online. Although the location of your solicitor might be useful to consider, you should avoid basing your decision solely on the location. There are lots of other important factors to consider when choosing the conveyancing solicitor for your move, such as, their communication style, your work schedule, whether you’ve had any personal recommendations.

Are conveyancers cheaper than solicitors?

Conveyancers can be cheaper than high street solicitors, due to the way solicitors charge for their work. When using a high street solicitor, you’ll likely have to pay by the hour for their work. This can often add up, especially if your move isn’t as straightforward, for example, you’re buying a leasehold or need to request a grant of probate for your sale. Specialist conveyancers are likely to charge a standard fee and provide a fairly accurate quote upfront. Either way, it’s good to get quotes to compare costs, always be sure to check the small print for any hidden costs.
