Gorvins Residential Why should you use a trusted solicitor for your conveyancing?

Why should you use a trusted solicitor for your conveyancing?

Last Updated: February 8th, 2023

Long Down Arrow

When it comes to buying or selling a residential property, choosing the right conveyancing solicitor can make all the difference. A trusted and experienced solicitor will ensure that your transaction is smoother, more efficient, and more cost-effective, giving you peace of mind during such an important process. In this article, we will discuss why using a trusted solicitor is so important and what to look for when choosing one.

Instructing an experienced solicitor will mean your transaction will be:

  • Smoother
  • More efficient
  • More cost-effective

A few decades ago buyers or sellers didn’t have much choice apart from the solicitors that were on their local high street. This monopoly in the market kept prices high as these solicitors knew they had an almost captive audience.

Conveyancing in the digital world: the pros and cons

In today’s digital world, you can choose a solicitor to transfer the legal rights of a property from almost anywhere in the country. At Gorvins we regularly deal with clients from all corners of the UK.

However, with the vast expansion of the internet and digital accessibility comes a downside. There are now many online portals that offer conveyancing at an extremely low cost, or at least that is what they want you to believe. These cheap headline prices tempt people in, who are then stung at a later date when it is revealed that their ‘conveyancing experts’ didn’t give you the full cost upfront.

If you had a problem with this (and rightly so!) you might ring up to speak to someone, yet never speak to the same person. At Gorvins we don’t do this. When you first ring up we will give you a no-obligation fixed fee quote which will include the FINAL cost. We believe in honesty which is why we include all the costs from day one; many online sites do not do this and have ‘hidden extras’ that they have neglected to tell you about at the start – this is why they appear to be cheaper.

The four important aspects of a specialist, trustworthy conveyancer

We believe there are four highly recommended criteria that you must take note of when it comes to choosing a conveyancer.

  • Offer a “no completion – no fee” policy
  • Provide you with a complete and final price from day one with NO hidden costs
  • All quotes are based on a fixed-fee basis and not per-hour rates
  • A real solicitors law firm with real people; not a ‘law farm’

At Gorvins, we believe in honesty and transparency, which is why we provide you with a no-obligation fixed fee quote that includes the final cost from day one. Many online sites do not do this and have “hidden extras” that they neglect to tell you about at the start, making them appear cheaper.

When you first contact us, you will speak to a real person and receive a personalized service that meets your specific needs. As an established and reputable law firm in Greater Manchester, we have teamed up with Zoopla and Plentific to provide all your conveyancing needs

Through a very stressful process buying a first home, Gorvins were confident and collected. Able to deliver what they promised and kept me updated through the stages. I was glad to have No Stress experience with our conveyancer in amongst the chaos of the rest of it.

Used as recommended by my mortgage advisor for a remortgage.  My case was dealt with by Natasha Sands and she made it complete smoothly and to my satisfaction.  Communication was great and all my questions answered promptly.  Will not hesitate to use again next time.

Fantastic service and for a fair price, special thanks to Joseph Hirst who dealt with my account from start to finish and was always on hand to deal with any queries I had, always got back to me in good time and made the whole process as stress free as possible.

Go with Gorvins, if you want peace of mind!

I recently instructed Gorvins to act on my behalf in the purchase of 5 apartments in Liverpool. I am happy to report that I was more than pleased with their performance.The services provided by the person in charge of the file at Gorvins was most professional, reliable and efficient. In fact she went out of her way to help in aspects which was not her responsibility and as a result the deal went­­ through smoothly.
