Is it better to use a local solicitor for conveyancing in the West Midlands

Whether you use a local solicitor or online conveyancer’s is up to you. There are advantages for each, and so it’s dependent on what you think is important. With an online conveyancer, you’ll usually get a more streamlined and efficient service, as you’ll benefit from a digital platform, such as eWay, for communication, document sharing and progress tracking. Additionally, as the work is completed online, rather than face-to-face, you aren’t limited by their location. This can be extremely handy if you’re relocating to or from the West Midlands, as you have access to files and your conveyancer, remotely. With this being said, completing the process online isn’t for everyone. So, it really does depend on what your circumstances are, and your own preferences.
