When spring cleaning is just not enough, it’s time to move!

Now is the ideal time to be looking for your new home so you can move in time for the summer and make the most of the longer days. So what do you need to consider?

Firstly, finding the house of course! Perhaps easier said than done but luckily more properties start coming onto the market this time of year so it’s an ideal time to get those viewings booked. It’s also the perfect time to put your house on the market.

Once you’ve found what you’ve always been looking for, you now need to instruct a knowledgeable and reliable Solicitor who can take over the rest of the process so all you need to worry about is booking removals. It really is that simple.

It’s important to get this next stage right but how do you choose the right Solicitor? Looking online, there seems to be so many to choose from and why do they vary in price?

Make sure you instruct someone who is experienced and fully qualified – there are many legal aspects to consider in the process and you need to ensure that your money is being invested into something that is legally sound.

Costs do tend to vary but so does quality in service. Some conveyancers/solicitors may seem like their fees are cheaper but then you find out part way through that there are either additional costs or your case is being handled by someone who’s not qualified. Cheaper in these circumstances often does not end up more cheerful, so make sure you ask what the fees include.

A good Solicitor will keep you informed at every step of the way so that you have a clear expectation of your moving day. All that’s left is to do is make sure you’re all packed and ready to fire up the summer BBQ.
