Once you have chosen your house, you must then choose your conveyancer. It can be hard enough to find your ideal home – let alone find a conveyancer suitable for the job. So what should you look for in your ideal conveyancer? We specialise in conveyancing in Taunton, Street and the surrounding areas. Therefore, we are in an ideal position to help you through the process.
It is a good idea to use a conveyancer local to the property you are purchasing. They will have a good knowledge of the area and can provide accurate information on the use and enjoyment of your property. Our conveyancing team have lived in Somerset all their lives so are guaranteed to have expert knowledge of the area!
Often, smaller firms are located within the town which means you can pop in at your convenience. We are located close to car parks and public transport so you won’t have to walk far to find us! You can bring your paperwork to Sally on reception rather than sending important documents in the post. Also, we have ground floor meeting rooms meaning we are accessible to all.
Using a small, local firm will mean that you are treated as an individual. Your case will be dealt with by a maximum of two people. They will have an extensive knowledge of your purchase and its progress. Using an online conveyancer or larger firm can mean that your case will be dealt with by many people. At Acorn, we will always meet face to face with our clients to provide a report on the property. All too often, the online or larger firms will provide a written report which can be quite long and daunting.
It is important that you make sure there are no hidden charges within your quotation. Some firms charge for carrying out money laundering checks and submitting the Stamp Duty forms. We are open and honest with our costs and provide fixed fees. If the transaction is going to cost more than originally quoted due to complications, we will let you know in advance before we carry out the work.
