People say that moving house is one of the most stressful things you’ll do…

We all know moving house is one of the most stressful things you can do and we understand that buying a new home is sometimes a daunting and nerve-racking experience. A good solicitor should do everything they can to ensure the process is as quick and as easy as it possibly can be, but there are a few things that you can do to try to keep your cool while your Conveyancer does their thing.

  • DO try to choose a Conveyancer based on personal recommendations from friends, family or a trusted advisor – such as your Broker or Estate Agent. A good recommendation from someone in the know is always a good place to start.
  • DON’T take ‘legal advice’ from anyone except your Conveyancer; this can lead to confusion, conflicting information and unnecessary stress.
  • DO ask questions if you don’t understand – your Conveyancer is there to make the legal jargon as clear as possible, not to confuse you even more. There’s no shame in asking for an explanation.
  • DON’T let anyone bully you into fixing a moving date – if you can’t do the date they want then another date will have to be agreed.
  • DO keep in contact with your Conveyancer – a call once a week for an update should be enough. You don’t need to phone your Conveyancers office on a daily basis – trust that we will tell you when and if anything happens in the meantime.
  • DON’T decide at the outset when you want to move; let your Conveyancer tell you when the entire chain is ready. You may be setting yourself an impossible goal.
  • DO keep your Conveyancer informed on your decisions and actions. We need to know it all, whether it’s a change of lender, price and right down to you paying extra for the curtains.
  • DON’T book anything (removals, delivery of the new sofa, time off from work) until you have been told that you have exchanged contracts and the date of completion is legally binding. If you do you run the risk of having to rearrange.
  • DO trust your Conveyancer to do their job. It’s definitely in their best interests to get your transaction completed as quickly as possible and you will move as soon as they can reasonably arrange it.

Above all stay calm – Sit back, chill out and let us do the worrying. We can handle it!

 And if you can’t relax, call us, vent your frustration…we can handle that too!
