Home buying legal process explained

Choosing a solicitor for home sales: how it works

If you use an independent solicitor from our panel, then we pay your costs, these are well known, long established firms of solicitors based in Liverpool who we have confidence in progressing the transaction quickly.

We offer this because a slow acting, less property experienced solicitor will delay any sale. Our panel solicitors are not connected to us and won’t affect the quality of work you receive in any way as the solicitor acts for you solely and in your interests and in according to all the usual rules of the law society.

On completion, we’ll provide you the funds, and you pay the solicitor directly, this solicitor will be a different firm of solicitors to ours and, and will be an entirely separate firm with no connection to our solicitors, they will be acting in your best interests, not ours. Whoever you choose, your solicitor will need to have full professional indemnity insurance, have a minimum of two partners working at their firm, and be a licensed conveyance solicitor with no disciplinary proceedings or any legal action against them.

The service you receive from a solicitor makes a huge difference to the speed of the transaction and the experience generally between buyer and seller
